TW Members. Introspection on an Epic scale.

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.......

We've been very fortunate things, so far, have turned out well.

A little girl that had the same condition as Freddie, had a transplant the month after him, passed away 2 weeks ago in her sleep. This little girl https://www.facebook.com/Afightagainstneuroblastoma/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; was in the next bed on Ward 84 when Freddie first got admitted, she passed away last Sunday.

Just read that pinned post and not ashamed to say I wiped a tear away. Absolutely heartbreaking what some children and parents have to go through. :cry:

I'm also fundraising again for Anthony Nolan, if you're able to spare a few pounds I'd be eternally grateful.

He's still doing well. Although his development seems to be hindered somewhat. He's not eating as other kids are. He won't eat at nursery, so goes pretty much all day without food and then wolfs down his tea. His speech isn't that of an almost 3 year old, he can only say single words, no sentences. But, he's still here and that's the main thing.

You were all fantastic sponsoring me last year, I'm doing Ride London again this year. Also, I've pledged that if I can get to £600, I'll shave my head. If you can spare some money I would be grateful https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ ... anthwaite1

AG thanks for the update. If it helps, when my boy was Freddie's age he ate poorly too. He wasn't fussy as such, just didn't like too much variety. We figured what the hell, he can eat what he wants, if it helps him gain weight. So we did that, for a while. Meal preparations became less stressful and he gained weight.

As for the speech we found that reading both with him and on his own developed his speech fantastically well. We would read books sporadically through the day and bedtime routine always concluded with a story. There should be a speech and language specialist at the local hospital you could speak to for this.

Good luck in Ride London. Haven't been on the bike in six months..........
