To all who have been keeping Joe in their thoughts and prayers, I so much wish I had better news to pass on. Have just heard that he's had an internal bleed and has been transferred from Gt Ormond St Children's Hosp to Royal College Hospital. Not good news but he is in good hands and we can only hope and pray that he will pull through. This is the first news on Joe that my cousin has rec'd since my last post. As promised I'll let you know when we hear more. Thank you as always for your much needed thoughts and prayers. (story on my previous threads re. Joe) Joyxxx Update 27/8/06 Delighted to tell you that I've finally had the following news; Joe has had all the drainage tubes removed and is now walking with the help of a zimmer frame - he's on the mend at last, thank the Lord. And we truly do, with no doubt in our minds at all that your prayers have been heard. Thank you all again for all your prayers and positive thoughts for this little lad. Will let you know when I hear anything about the documentary on channel five re. Joe's illness and recovery. Love, Joy xxx

As you say at least he is in the best possible hands. Thoughts are with his parents too who must be at their wits ends.

Penny, both Ann's, Mau,Sunny and Catherine, thank you all so much for your messages. I've only just come back on to the boards and seen them. So many kind people have responded on my earlier threads and I know that they are with Joe and his family all the way, so your ongoing support is acknowledged with love and gratitude, no need to post again on here because your silent thoughts and prayers mean just as much, bless you all.
