Happy to report that Pads has been pretty healthy recently, that is, in terms of avoiding having to be in hospital. He still has the cold but it's not making him ill, in spite of a sore throat and ear, so his feeding tube is not under threat. His blood results were good last Thursday and so he's not had a temperature either. Bo is actually slightly more ill - struggling to shake off a dicky tummy.
We're having a relaxing holiday - very much looking forward to meeting up with some of Ally's Irish connection.
You may have already heard that Hannah and Mark have a new baby boy. It was looking good for a normal delivery, until it became clear that the child's position wasnt good so the team opted for ceasarian section. No confirmed news on a name yet.
