Thank you for all your kind messages and prayers. Thomas is now in high dependency where they can closely monitor him. The operation was ‘straightforward’ (my new favourite word! ) and the surgeon is happy. The next few days are going to be tricky as he will have to stay on his back or on his side and we shall naturally need to manage the pain and shock of such an invasive procedure. Please keep the love and prayers coming as we aren’t out of the woods yet- sleep is going to have to wait.
