Bede’s been in PICU fighting for two days now. They think we could lose him.
He of course has other ideas. He is fighting with a smile.
He may be small but he is mighty and his brand of resilient happiness is not done yet.
We have prayed and loved and hoped ourselves into physical and emotional exhaustion. Bede was heading into a period of intense rehab and moving beyond his tumour into life. We are devastated all this potential for a happy life could be snatched from him when he is so close to it.
A massive thanks from Roy and I to everyone who has sent love, prayers and red bull.
I am too exhausted to convey how much this light filled child and his determination to stay with us means to us. In this moment there are no words just profound love and faith. We are proud beyond belief and hopeful beyond reason.
As one doctor who knows Bede well said… “He’ll come back. This is Bede after all”
