Gavin: The bi-weekly maybe weekly roundup begins (+75)

Right, listen up you lot. Sonny is doing really well. Really, really well. All his bloods are heading in the right way and, although his liver readings are still off the scale, they're coming down nicely in what the doctors call a 'trend'. Alongside all this, he's having a great time, eating well and getting better on his feet every day. So, we've decided to reduce the blog to a bi-weekly or maybe weekly roundup where we'll fill you in then.
I know, I know... it's going to be tough for us all to get used to but our reasons are simple: The more Sonny is at home the less things there are to blog about. It's a brilliant situation and one we all hope you understand. Of course, if there's an online petition that takes on the sort of weight the 'Free Diedre Rashid' campaign did, then we may reconsider.
Keep emailing, commenting and calling. We're not going anywhere, there just isn't that much to say. That's probably the best sentence I've ever typed in my life.
See you Friday people. Be careful out there.

    Hi Zoe and Gavin,

    I can't find a contact us button, so I hope this is ok! I work for Anthony Nolan, a charity that finds matches for patients who need a lifesaving stem cell transplant.

    It's great to read your blog and hear that Sonny is doing so well. At Anthony Nolan, we find it useful to talk about people who have been affected by blood related disorders as part of our work, to inspire others to join our donor register, or fundraise for us. It'd be great to speak to you about featuring Sonny's story. Feel free to send me an email if you'd like to know more -

    Best wishes,


  2. Hi Guys
    We have been reading your blog since last November, have been crying one moment and feeling so desperate for you both, then lauging out loud at the next especially talking about the other parents. This really should be turned into a book for others in a similar situation ! Just wanted to send you a all a massive snog we think your all great and such an amazing family. Will keep a check on you weekly but for now enjoy yourselfs and your family. Lots of love The Macs xxxx
    ps: You may never have got any of our messages as we are totally crap at this sort of thing, you may never even get this one as we are but simple farmers !!
