Daddy's Super Hero

Yesterday I went to a fund raising event at our local pub. It was to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald house at Alder Hey children's hospital Liverpool .

6 wks ago our next door neighbors little boy Connor aged 2 was rushed from Manchester to Alder Hey with Meningitis and septicemia for those 6 wks his Mum was able to stay very close by in the Ronald McDonald house which was a god send for Laura. The house is a charity, click on the link to learn more on how these marvelous houses work.

Connor Came home last Tuesday and everyone that knows him are so pleased to have him back. I have done a LO of him dressed as Bob the Builder at the fun day yesterday. The small pic of him is one I did for him on photoshop by putting his head on top of a picture of the real Bob. This picture was taken before Connor was ill.

Our local News station Channel M have been round to film Connor with his Mum and Dad to help warn other people about the signs and dangers of meningitis. You can see the news article HERE

So glad that little guy is doing so well! Those houses are a God send. My sister used to use the one attached to Great Ormond Street when my nephew was alive, so I know what it means to families to have this kind of support at such critical times. xx
