HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
A news years resolution for us all is to keep you all updated more frequently, as were not actually that good at blogging!
So before Christmas, Chad unfortunately was found to have an infection in his Hickman line. he had a 2 week course of antibiotics (including on xmas day). During his clinic appointments and through daily blood tests-the bug had not shifted and the line would need to be removed. Chad was excited that he would be able to go to Keech Cottage and swim, however, today we found out the line is actually now clear of infection, and will not be removed-YAY!
Chads gutted because this means he wont be able to swim!
We had a fabulous Christmas at Alis with the family, and then Saw in what is going to be a POSITIVE 2014 at Nic and Chris’ annual NYE party!
Chad is getting on fabulously this year! he is currently downstairs with his tutor and I THINK its maths they’re doing today. He also saw the speech therapist this week who is also super impressed with Chads progress. Walking is coming on leaps and bounds (just humour me)-and Chads even managing to dress himself in the morning, and wander around downstairs. He has started showing interest in his PEG, and has been helping mum with his meds and feeds.
Chad a had a quick haircut on Tuesday, and also wants his blonde hair back. We almost sure he will lose his hair again with the next cycle of chemo which starts 14th Jan so thats something that will have to wait!
The ‘revamp’ of C2 Teenage Room is due to start this year with the funds raised from Chads Charity Evening which was held in Oct 2012. Ill get some pictures of that for you all when thats underway
