        We really did it was his birthday on the 15th but with work commitments for the lads that was the first time we could get together. Our youngest could not make it though. xxxxxx

        The 15th? My stepson just turned 45 that day. Also it was my brother’s b-day and it’s my older son and wife’s anniversary. A popular day for special events! 🎁🎈πŸ₯‚πŸ°πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

        So sad to die at nine years, before he had lived long. Life is cruel.

        He died in early January of that year (was actually just 8) of polio. The vaccine didn’t come out until 2-3 years later? I had just turned 5 and remember it all so clearly still. Was in quarantine for two weeks. Those were bad times before they had the vaccine. Thankfully we don’t have to worry about polio anymore – although some young parents these days don’t believe in shots or vaccines and we’re suddenly having cases of those old illnesses making a comeback over here. Same over there?

        So sad for you all, I was born in 1953 the polio vaccine was introduced in the UK in 1955. I remember seeing children at school with calipers on their legs after having had the desiase.
        No one in my family had polio but my eldest brother who would of been 79 this year died of gastro interitus when he was 6 months old.
        Yes some the younger mums are not having all the vaccinations done and some illnesses are returning… I call it madness. πŸ’œπŸ’œ

        Oh, that’s so sad to hear about your brother. That would’ve been terrible for your parents. Glad they went on to have YOU years later. (You’re still young compared to me. 😊 )
        Just realized it’s after midnight where are. Hope you have a good night’s sleep! (Sorry I led the conversation into sad subjects. Think flowers and hearts and sunshine now. β˜€οΈπŸ’•πŸŒ»πŸŒΈπŸ’™πŸŽΆπŸ’

    Did it ever get figured out how the wound came to be?… Just wondering…. and I hope it heals soon…. it probably puts a serious dent in her play-time…
