We went to see Tom again mid-morning and found him still in bed which is very unusual for him. But, on the plus side he looked a lot better than he did yesterday and a little bit of his old feisty self shone through a couple of times. The Doctor has put him on oxygen as his levels are low and they're crushing his tablets now so he can get them down easier.
I know it sounds awful but he's making us laugh with the random things he's started to come out with. Today we were having a perfectly normal conversation when he suddenly tranced off for a couple of minutes then said, "the trouble is they all look like bumble bees in Middleton". I'd love to know what train of thought he was on there.
It was Thomas' awards evening tonight. We had a little chat about smiling when he went on stage and he stepped up to the bar and performed well!
In honour of the occasion and to do something nice for myself I painted my toenails. I needn't have bothered as it poured down and I had to wear boots.
And today, 10 years on from that terrible day in London, I've been reminded that no matter how rubbish things are at the moment there are families who lost loved ones before they should have done for no reason at all.
