What an enormously tough day you all had. How tenacious and skilled are those surgeons to be working for so long. And I can only imagine how it emotionally exhausting it was for you all who were waiting. Sending butterfly kisses to your boy as he awakes today and huge hugs to you all. Thank you for allowing us to share in your journey. P x

Hi leigh
I have just returned from Melbourne where I spent Christmas day with one of my boys and then attended the boxing day test. Like so many of us, not a day has gone past when Rory has not been in my thoughts. It sounds as though you have all given Rory and each other a beautiful Christmas. Loving thoughts from you to me as you launch full steam ahead into the new year. May this year be Rory's year. Much love xx
