    Kim, thanks for the update. The whole Pearson family is with you. We are trying to see what we can do to organize a blood drive. Go and conquer Day 5.

    Kim, bribe away and keep scattering stars onto the star chart like glitter; you’re in crisis mode at the moment and all you need to do is keep putting one foot in front of the other. You can figure the rest out later.

    Podcast recommendations – my very favourite is the HighLow by Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton. Smart, funny and a nice mix of in-depth discussion and silliness. I’m also devoted to the Archers Omnibus, but it’s not for everyone 🙂

    We can’t even get calpol past our Alex’s lips, so how you got yucky meds past Bilbo’s god knows! Thank you for the update and links. It’s helping us cope with our worry. I know you said don’t google but we couldn’t help it. We’re thinking of all the poor children, families and friends who were forced on this hideous journey 50 years ago but never stood a chance. And how, today, most have a fantastic chance. The fight is no less life-altering and arduous for those affected, but hooray for science for giving people a fighting chance. X

    I always remember reading that actually, it’s ok to cry with the child when something really is upsetting for you too, otherwise it can be more confusing than anything else – like “hang on, this is awful and I’m so upset but mummy thinks it’s all fine..” if that makes sense? Sending you so much love and positivity. Thinking lots of you all. Xxxx

    Kim you’re doing amazingly well….lots of hugs, positivity and prays to you, Bilbo and your family xxxx

    Hi Kim. I’m a friend of Di & John (we all worked together) so I feel as though I kind of know Bilbo from Di’s postings & this news is such a shock.Richard won’t remember me but I have met him in the past through his Mum. You’re right to write your blog because it will let us all know how Bilbo is faring, but it will also be cathartic for you. I wish you all the very best & send love & hugs at this difficult time – you will get through this & Bilbo will be the happy carefree little boy again xxxx

  9. Becky says:

    Bless you all, what a tough time, and as someone else said its good to cry with them when you are in a tough place. And wow what an amazing person you are Kim! Whilst all this is going on thinking about and providing details on how others can help. You are so strong! Happy to hell with any babysitting going forwards if you need somewhere for H to go. Seren is similar age so sure we can entertain for a while should you need it x x

    Hi Kim,
    We dont know each other,im your uncle Terrys buisness partner. Ive just read your story and to say i feel for you is an understatment. I know you have a good family as Tel has told me so im sure you’re getting plenty of support and love. I hope the fact some random bloke in Nottingham is thinking of you all and that gives you a tiny bit of comfort. I for one will be giving blood this week as ive not done so in a couple of years. Take care and stay strong x

    • godberstravel says:

      It does thank you for commenting the support means the world to us and one day Bilbo will understand too!

    Living life in hospital is a tough gig. I think you guys are doing amazing and doing all you can to support the care programm Bibo needs. Remember to take time out for you if only for a lap round the hospital. A fuzzy mind , pounding headache and exhaustion can side step after a good power walk. Stay strong. If you need anything let us know. X Price family thinking of you all and sending our love X

  12. Roxy says:

    Just do whatever you need to do to keep him getting through each day. And you too. Try to push that guilt away. You’re doing amazing just gettting up to face another day with shitty cancer. Thinking of you all so much xx you’re a tiger mum and you’ll get him through this with tears and hugs and bribes and love xxx come on bilbo we are all sending you strength xxxx

    Just found your story from Dina’s e-mail about the Dino Bake Sale (I work for Pearson too). Sounds like you’re all doing amazingly in such a tough time. Thank you so much for sharing your story and your journey.

    I echo the High Low podcast recommendation – my absolute favourite!

    Also, I don’t know where you live but don’t think I’m too far from you (I’m between Bedford and Luton) so if there’s anything I can do to help I’d be more than happy to – I know how much of a nightmare the logistics of childcare etc. can be when you have 1 in hospital.

    I’m giving blood on Tuesday and will be thinking of Bilbo and sending you all the positive thoughts.
