Good News

Some change of luck at last for Jack and Sophie, after a very tough few months. I received a phone call today from a lady from Dream Flight, they have both been chosen to go to Florida in October with this charity. They were nominated by the team of professionals who looked after them when they were very poorly in hospital. What a chance of a life time, it sounds amazing, and so grateful for this generosity to allow this to happen.

That's fantastic, they'll have a great time.

My granddaughter got a trip to Lapland just for a day with "wish upon a star" because of her condition, it was magical for her.

Hi David I'm still around, like you I don't always feel like posting, but I look in and keep an eye on things every day, it feel so tired at present, plus been back to rehab unit doctor at their clinic,but they've discharged me now, so cut adrift at the mercy of the world at large, just a matter of managing my condition now, or so they said.

Take care, Janet xxx
