sorry about lack of updates, loads been going on, will tell you why at the end of this update ;)
Right, as Bev has commented on, the valganciclovir, well yes its very very expensive (60 tablets cost over £1000). Our GP has perscribed it, but has said he will have to go to the PCT about funding for peters medications. The fact is, that his cocktail of drugs to keep him alive are expensive, and not soemthing that apparently comes out of standard budget. So they have to request that they can get funding for them. In the end, its a load of red tape, they wont stop the medication, as they cant do that, and we will get the pills, wether its from GP or the hospital. So thats a small minor headache and generally not thinking about it, except for going 'How much?! really? bloody hell!' lol.
Peters biopsy went ok, no more now for a fortnight, just twie weekly trips to harefield for bloods and clinic.
And why have i been slack at updating?
well, as on a post made last week, I have a new neice called Jasmine. But on tuesday, arriving at 33weeks, 7 weeks early, callum came into the world. Callum is my new teeny tiny nephew, who mum is my big sister Maria. Callum is brother to Connor, Beth and Megan, son to Jason. He is not actually a bad size for a 33weeker, weighing in at 4lb 8oz. He isnt in an incubater, is in a heated cot only, no breathing assistance needed, and agpar scores of 8 +9 (i think). My sister has said i can post the montage here as well, so have a peek.
