No, thank you for asking. He had meningitis when he was a baby as a result of which he had SLD, autism, speech delay and left-sided hemiplegia. He was crazy about pirates, Disney, Harry Potter, Star Wars and girls in bikinis. I'm not at home to martyrdom or pity, I'd much rather have a cold glass of champagne. I thank you.
Has it really been more than a year than since I blogged?
All going quite well, I think. Jordan has lost a lot of weight, which has improved his mobility. He really enjoys college and is trying out taster days for horticulture and art (with a view to pursuing further courses next year).
Fixations to date include relatives (and visiting them), dressing up like Bill Sikes out of 'Oliver!' and the wearing of denim jeans as opposed to tracksuit bottoms. The absolute favourite though is our proposed holiday in Barmouth, Wales at a place called Twr Mynach. It really does have a tower, much to the boy's delight, as he thinks it's Hogwart's. A re-enactment of Rapunzel will take place.
