Laura is still in hospital while they poke and prod her to try and find out how to treat her. I spoke to her on the phone and she said she didn't want to go home, she was happy and promised me a picture from her colouring book. She has been so brave but I feel for Gill, having to spend time at the hospital, worrying about their future and having to watch Laura being put through all of the tests. Fergus is also being very brave, trying to get on with life and school while Laura needs most of the attention, he's so understanding. I'm going up next Thursday for a weekend retreat with some friends, it's only 30 minutes drive from Gill's house so if Laura isn't well enough we will stay at Gills and maybe just visit our friends. I'm looking forward to seeing Laura and hopefully I'll cheer Gill up for the weekend.
