A text message to my mate Joe:
Heya Joe, just tried calling but I guess you’re commuting.
Situation is very much ongoing.
We were transferred last night to the Royal Alexandra in Brighton which is a specialist children’s hospital – and incredible. Ultra modern and hi-tec.
It’s looking like George is going to need surgery today or tomorrow as he has a blockage in his gut and not pooping. Again, it’s all related to the downs syndrome.
Poor little lad. Honestly, so many ups and downs.
We got a bit of rest last night and Caz’s parents are making the trip from Grimsby today which will be great for her.
My folks have been amazing stepping in to look after Ben, who himself is showing incredible understanding.
I’ll keep in touch.
