Like Christmas Eve. But not.
We tried very hard today to have a fun time with Ted ahead of his big surgery tomorrow. It is always hard to play with a heavy heart but Ted is such a fun little guy we are lucky he kept us smiling. He said he really enjoyed his day in fact he told Tabitha “today is MY day you know, not yours, because I’m extra special” she gave him a very unimpressed look the kind best given by a 7yr old big sister.
Here are some photos from our little picnic at the park and our fun stopover at the playground. We had lots of delicious treats and tonight ended the day with Ted’s favourite dinner- lasagne!
We are so touched by all of the messages of love and support and Teddy was so chuffed to receive so many special gifts today, he will be the most loved boy in all the hospital. Thank you so much to our amazing friends and family we love you all so much! xxx
I am so glad Ted had a brilliant day before his procedure tomorrow. Lovely photos of you and Rich with Super Ted. Will be keeping you all in my prayers and praying that the procedure is done perfectly, quickly with absolutely no complications. I am sure you are going to WOW them all Ted. Everyone is cheering you all on!!
Great photos of a lovely day. Will be thinking of you all tomorrow. Love and best wishes for a successful surgery. Sharon & Will x
So lovely to see Teddy smiling and playing like a typical 4 year old. Such a strong soul he has.
Teddy we are sending you lots of love and strength, praying that everything goes smoothly tomorrow and is over in a flash for you. We are looking forward to seeing you smiling and playing with all your favourite toys. Stay strong big guy.
Carolyn and Richard you are both a tower of strength, seeing your gorgeous pics of you both having a great time with your brave little boy is so comforting to us so far away from you. I want to grab you and hug you both and whisper it will be okay..but you both know it will be. Keep positive.
Sending lots of hugs to Tabby and Monte, who are also being so big and brave, and Im sure they can’t wait for Teddy to be home soon.
We are here cheering you on and thinking of you all.
Lots of Love and strength.
