Sorry I have taken so long to get back to you all. I am very happy to report that Tyler is out of hospital and recovering well. He started back at school although he is still on antibiotics (and will be for another 4-5 weeks) and has to visit his doctor every week for a check-up. He will then go back to the hospital next month for a further x-ray and see the specialist, so hopefully he will be completely in the clear by then.
The downside for Tyler is that he is going to miss out on his long-awaited class camping trip next week. He is still not well enough for that and the school staff don’t want that added responsibility. Hard to explain to a little boy that he is not being punished, but that everyone is just looking out for him.
Thank you so much, both from me and Tyler, for all your kind words and thoughts.
