If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

it is, I'll try and copy/paste.

Not done a Freddie update for a while,he's doing really well. Blood counts are normal and his white blood count is slowly rising whilst his immune system rebuilds. His NG tube has come out to see if he can cope without it but I'm sure he will be fine. Hickman line has to stay in for a while yet in case he gets any viruses or infections. One of the side effects of the medicine he's on is excess growth of body hair and poor Freddie looks like a little bear all over his back. Everything looks positive and I'm shortly going to be writing to his donor in Germany to thank him for his priceless gift xx

Great to hear.
That donor is a hero. I looked into it myself but am way too old at 40 it seems.

Nor me, and if I go to Laura's FB page the latest photo is for October last year.

Hesitated to ask, but delighted to hear the news. All positives... :)

Ah cheers for that. I'll look into it. The Anthony Nolan thing only goes up to 30.

He's doing well, better than expected. Makes you realize how lucky you are when other kids who had their transplants around the same time have passed away or are still in intensive care.

The training for Ride London is going ok. I'm doing a blog about it http://www.ukcyclechat.co.uk/a-first-ri ... ocal-club/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Good stuff AG. Is that your club that meets at the bus stop opposite the Ainsworth Arms on a Saturday morning?

Great to hear that Freddie is doing so well!
