Oh Leigh, your blog has become harder and harder to read as Rory's situation and stamina to keep going deteriorate. Like everyone else who loves you, we wish there was something/anything we could do to help. All we can do is send you our love and strength, and hope you get home tomorrow for the slightest reprieve from the nightmare. We love you.

Hey beautiful family. Mrs Krook here, hoping Colt is having fun in the big smoke during Level 2. Please let me know when you're back in town so I can drop some things around for Colt. Hope Rory is feeling better today- sending positive vibes your way. Happy Mothers day for the other day also Leigh- YOU ARE AN AMAZING MOTHER xoxo.


Thinking of you all with love, and a few sobs. You're a beautiful mum.

Hold on Rory! It sounds like it's so tough at the moment, and you are going through something so few of us ever have to experience. But we all want to see you well and happy at the end of this. Your family and friends are amazing - you are so loved. I hope their love keeps you going through the lows. I think of you often, hang in there. Love, Mrs Crowe xo
