Children's television when I was young
Malachi has got a cold and he is really wheezy again. He isn't as bad as last time, probably because I started him on his inhaler as soon as the wheezing started rather than dithering and then waiting for a GP appointment. I think he will probably get an asthma diagnosis at some point. Partly because Ehlers Danlos Syndrome affects his core muscles and partly because Simon and I both have it.
Isaac will be going to school 9-1 this week and next week. Hopefully he will manage the extra hour ok. He has been very tired but he is determined to walk as much as possible. We take the wheelchair with us everywhere just in case and on most journeys he will get in for a rest at some point.
