We received a worrying call
On Saturday 22 October 2016 my husband and I were enjoying a rare weekend away in London to celebrate my 30th birthday.
We received a worrying call from my mum late in the afternoon. She had noticed a lump in Albie’s stomach when changing his nappy. As a precaution my dad had taken him to our local A&E to get checked over.
My husband and I immediately jumped in a taxi from London for what felt like the longest journey of our lives. The moment the doctor took us into a separate consulting room we knew our lives were about to change forever.
We felt as if we were watching the drama unfold from the outside looking in. The doctor confirmed that their ultrasound scan on Albie had highlighted the presence of a large, right-sided abdominal mass. He also had significantly raised blood pressure.
