Hi, We will be visiting London for Spring Break vacation. My son Noah will be bringing his manual wheelchair. I was wondering if anyone could share some tips on how best to get around the city with a wheelchair.
Thanks, Renee

My little one is due to start primary school in September, so I'm in the process of setting up a Statement of Education for him. Is there anything anyone recommends I ensure is included? Any experiences? I've asked for additional supervision in the playground but I'm a bit lost after that.

Our boys and their bowels!!

For the last 16 weeks my son (15) has had many bouts of diarrohea. Unfortunately I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome and am susceptible to this so as you can imagine life has been very trying.  Christmas day was a disaster!!

Now, and unbelievably, he has chronic constipation and we are of to our local children's ward.  He is totally fed up, his lower tummy is rock hard and cranky isn't the word I'd use to describe both him, me and now my husband!

The hospital are going to crank up his Movicol (he is still on the peadiatric powders - the adult ones being not the easiest of things to get down) and await for the eruption.  It's hard to get him to drink the required amount without it becoming a daily trial and constant nag!  They are then going to do some investigations into what is going on with his bowels.

Does any body else have issues with constipation / diarrohea?  Looking forward to hearing your replies a.s.a.p.

Hi Lisa, are you on Facebook? That's where most of us talk.
