Just a quick post to let you know that Nick was discharged from hospital this afternoon
I have been astounded by how grown up he has been over all this - my boy is really a man in teenager's clothing on the quiet
His attitude when asked how he feels is a shrug of the shoulders and the reply "I've got to do it so I'll just get on with it"
He has to administer his own insulin injections four times a day and prick his finger to carry out blood sugar level tests regularly - all this he has mastered quickly with no fuss and great competence
He's now desperate to get back to some semblance of normality so he returns to school tomorrow
As for me - I'm shall we say somewhat nervous especially now I'm away from the hospital safety net even though they are accessible 24/7 at the end of a phone
But I'm in total awe of the way he has coped and is looking forward to the future with his usual zest for life
Thank you to everyone who both commented or emailed me privately with your support, advice and good wishes.
You've given me more support than you can ever know
So now - onwards and upwards!
