I'm doing a fundraiser cycle event for charity and I have created a fundraising page on mycharity.ie. The Temple Street Children’s University Hospital is a very worthy cause and I would very much appreciate your support in helping me to raise funds for this charity.
All proceeds go directly towards purchasing vital life-saving equipment for the Hospital, in particular the Neurosurgery Department. I became very aware of the special work this hospital does just a few years ago when my young cousin was born without both kidneys. Through the work of the staff he was kept alive until he was able to undergo a kidney transplant operation. By donating to this charity you are contributing to the vital work needed to assist children who are suffering from life-threatening brain and spinal conditions.
Click on this link and see what I am doing and when I am doing it. You can sponsor me by credit or debit card through the mycharity.ie webpage that I have created. Don't worry, the site is very secure and your credit card information is very safe. Please give as generously as you can.
Thanks in advance for your support,

Tursday 20th update:
This must be our week - our nurses have apparently been reinstated. We can't be sure because of course we haven't been told, but it appears the nurses have been told to turn up - when and for how long? Well we'll just have to wait and see won't we. Obviously we will be the last to know, as such information is highly sensitive and probably top secret... so, if anyone asks, you didn't hear it from me.

Last year 90 families, who were forced to say a final farewell to their loved ones, made the ultimate act of extraordinary compassion by agreeing to organ donation. These 90 grieving families' decisions saved the lives of 243 people in 2009.

To pee, or not to pee: that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the pipes to suffer
The slings and arrows of dodgy plumbing
Or to take a scalpel against the seized u-bends
And by a nip and tuck mend them? To plumb: to leak
No more; and by a surgery to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand wet nappies
That we changeth daily, ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d.
Yesterday, after many false starts, we met with the surgeon in charge of Rory's future plumbing. There's much to consider. He's got some developmental ground to make up before we can even consider fitting him with a new run-off pipe. It's a lot to take on board. Is it wrong to be relieved that the surgery is on the long finger? I couldn't cope with another major theatre episode.
With sincere apologies to Mr. Shakespeare, but I if were indulged, I fear you may get the full belt of a very long soliloquy. I'll spare you the pain and go instead to research the latest in juvenile plumbing.
Anyone got a secondhand copy of that revered tome: Bladder Augmentation for Beginners ?
