Hi it’s Lucas.
I’ve not done a blog for quite some time as I’ve had a lot of ups and downs recently. I had a knee injury at school in games and couldn’t walk on it properly for a while. It was very painful and my knee swelled up as it had fluid on it. I still went to school but had to use the lift as there are too many stairs! I couldn’t do any sports which I really missed, especially football as it’s is my favourite sport. It was really hard to sit out and watch all my friends having a good time and not been able to join in.
I have times when I have my monthly chemo through my line where my legs and joints are really painful. I had a trip planned with my dad to go on a boys week away to the Isle of Man TT. It was touch and go whether I could go because I was neutropenic which means I can’t fight infection and can pick up infections more easily. Luckily my bloods went up (PHEW!) and I was able to go. Me, my dad and his two friends went and we had the best time. Mum and my sister, Ellie had a girly week together at home.
People are still donating to my justgiving page and I want to keep raising money for the charity. We’re planning another fundraising event at the moment to raise even more, but if you’d like to donate in the meantime, please click here.
See you soon, lots of love, Lucas.
