[IPk] Charlie Dalton



Great news. We collect the pump on Monday and Charlie starts pumping on
Wednesday. At 10 years old, he will be Kings College's youngest pumper (I'm
quite surprised at this...). We then have half term to learn to use the pump
(!) and then Charlie returns to school and the care of the two school
nurses. (We do have access to our children every day and we usually go in
the evenings to do blood tests and injections). Aren't they fantastic for
taking it all on board? It would be so easy for them to say that the whole
thing is beyond their remit. The Cathedral have been great too - not a place
usually known for forward thinking!!! Their only worry is that the pump
might 'make noises'.
