    We are kicking off the week with some feel-good…

    “Tommy is absolutely smashing reception! He struggled to settle into nursery, but he started reception on the 3rd and absolutely loves it. He got a “star of the week” certificate on his first full week and he doesn’t want to come home on an afternoon! Tommy is doing 5 full days and is pre-Fontan, so I was expecting him to struggle, but he’s not ❤”

    Fantastic news sent in by LHM member Beth, mum to Tommy who was born with half a heart. So pleased he is settling in well.

    Parents, remember we have a new teachers pack created to help schools understand the needs of a child with a single ventricle heart. You can find it here: bit.ly/3jqAbpQ or email [email protected] to request a hard copy.
