It's great, fantastic!, that there are surgeons in Dublin that may be able to help you. How encouraging! I hope it's the right thing for him, and he would not even have to be moved elsewhere, which would be very hard for his tired little body.
Yes, there is a lot of good in the world, jess. But we all have had our hard times in finding some of it, sometimes. Perhaps we should look at it in the sense that we appreciate things when they are harder to find and obtain. But of course we don't like the suffering that we, and especially, our children, have to go through before we get help.
I'll send my prayers to you and your family, especially dylan and your mother, who have probably suffered the most. I'll also look forward to positive updates on dylan's condition. wr
