Hey, I returned from 24 hours away (the rest of us Nortons were on watch) to find George in the bed that had previously been occupied by a very tired and poorly imitation! The really good news is that George managed 7.5 hours MUCH NEEDED sleep last night and even greeted a number of us whilst sitting in his chair! Understandably this move was tiring, and resulted in more sleeping, but it is all excellent progress. George’s neutrofils (neutrophils?) are now 0.6 which means, officially, that he is no longer neutropenic (spelling??). Who invented all these long words anyway?!(says Harriet the simpleton). I am glad to report the dire-rear(!!!)has finally abated. Now that his immune system will kick in, we can expect a minor setback as this will cause some inflammation and discomfort. Maida has been an absolute STAR looking after him this week and has made us all feel very welcome. It makes it all much easier. I will be away in Stevenage Monday night but Harriet and Freddie will update this (minus the long words). Thank you all for your fantastic, helpful and supportive comments, which have been passed to George who loves them.
