(Sorry, meant to post this last weekend)
Some good news on Andy Wilson, who is still in hospital but has shown signs of real improvement this week. Andy’s mum Shirley said, “It’s been a week of ups and downs but his latest scan shows the kidney healing well, mainly due to the fact Andrew* is young and fit. He has had a temperature for the past two days but they are keeping an eye on things closely with blood checks etc” The doctors continue to monitor progress but hopefully Andy will be allowed home after a few more days.
Andy has been cheered up with all his visitors including a surprise visit on Wednesday from Scotland legend Chris Patterson. He’d like thank everyone for their support.
Unfortunately, after giving it much thought, Andy is taking a year out from university as trying to ‘catch up’ is probably impossible. He is in his fourth year and would be de
vastated not to do well. Andy and his family have agreed that this is a lifetime decision—getting well is the first priority!
We all wish Andy a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back at Laigh Bent in the near future!
