Update: A’s and B’s on school report
Ethan and Kai are doing really well. They have just celebrated their 13th birthday which is fantastic. They are now officially teenagers and definitely have the teenage moods to suit.
They are currently in year 8 at school, they just had their school reports which had lots of A’s and B’s. They are due to pick their options soon. Both of them love history and it’s a subject that is on the list.
They still attend the Birmingham Children’s hospital for their check-ups which are now once a year. They are seen by a transition nurse who is really good. She speaks to them as young adults now, talking about becoming teenagers, their moods and their aspirations but also talking about what they understand about the leukaemia they had. She stresses to them about the importance of staying healthy and looking after themselves.
They still love their football and are regulars in their school team. They enjoy doing other sports as well. They both represented their school in table tennis and got to the county semi-finals.
