Wow so much going on and so much hanging in the balance.
Sending you love and hugs and maybe some moisturiser for the dried up Taco!

Hi Leigh and Rory,
Thanks for your updates on this blog Leigh.
I found your description of 27b particulary enlightening.
Being a 'visual' learner, your words helped paint a picture of what it is like on
a daily ( and nightly) basis for you both - and so many others where you are staying.
I hope that these 1.5 hourly wake-ups cease for you both and that
all the love and postive energy being sent your way will kick start Rory's body into
doing all the right things - healing, healing and more healing.
I love the photo of you two ,
Always thinking of you,

Hi Rory,
Sincere apologies for the delay acknowledging your "Thank You" Card. We have been trying to post a message on your Support Page; but for some reason it has not appeared. Hopefully it works this time. Your card certainly demonstrates you are no mean artist.
We trust the donation will be of some help going for your treatment at "Starship", and pray the treatment will be successful. The whole attitude of yourself and your Mum and Dad to your problem, is to be admired.
Kind regards and best wishes to you from the Members of the Inglewood Branch of Red Cross.
Don Reeve, Secretary

Hi Rory,
I’ve been watching your journey through your Mum’s blog entries and just wanted you to know that you’ve been in my thoughts. You’re incredibly brave and strong. What an amazing family you have too. It’s cool that you’re home, back in your own bed and even supporting Colt at the spelling bee. I really admire your strength and positivity... and I’m a massive LEGO fan like you! Lots of love and prayers,
Kelly (Mrs Edwards)

There was also a lump in my throat when I read your blog entitled "jack'. Our world has some lovely, lovely people in it.
Best wishes to you Jack on your new journey. I feel sure that Rory will never be very far away from your thoughts, nor you from his.
Much love to you all,

Hi Rory and family,
I have just come home from a visit to school with my almost 1 year old daughter while on maternity leave, to hear this news. My heart feels very heavy today. Rory you have always been a little ray of sunshine in my day when you were my student and I’m sure that will be part of my day again in some way as I follow your journey on this blog. Keep up your strength and know you have a whole army of support back at home.
Big hugs to you all and take care
Mrs Lovell-Gibson xx

It was lovely to see Rory "live' the other day Leigh.
Both students and staff were all so happy to see him.
That beautiful, brave boy of yours.
And yes, we remain full of hope in our hearts,
