I don't normally like to post a no actual news post, yet...

To this day Lucy's ACTUAL cause of death is still not officially classified by the Coroner. Yes 247 days and not knowing what actually was the cause of Lucy’s infection.

Yes, to this day, we do not have a formal original infection that caused her death.

OK, we know she had sepsis (What our charity is focusing on right now with sharing signs) which is a reaction to an “infection” that caused "septic shock" or "severe sepsis", yet they have no idea yet of the root cause of the infection!!

On communicating with the coroner, they basically are saying, stand by and often normal in these situations??, yet it still feels very strange to us taking this long…..

#muchloveThrough the help of sharing Dylan’s page another life has potentially been saved... This is why I do what I do .. All for others & all for our brave son Dylan who we horrifically lost to sepsis... to share his story to help others. I DON’T want others to feel this loss & pain. I WANT as many people as I can to know about sepsis & to have the knowledge. What are the three stages of sepsis? Sepsis affects the body in three distinct stages. Stage One An infection invades a specific part of the body - pneumonia affects the lungs, for example - triggering the immune system into action. The germs and toxins produced by the bacteria or virus leave the original site of infection and enter the bloodstream. This causes the inflammatory response known as SIRS (systemic inflammatory response syndrome). Stage Two Individual organs throughout the body become affected and begin to deteriorate. In severe cases, this can lead to organ failure. Stage Three More than one organ stops functioning, and the patient experiences cardio-circulatory failure that leads to a sudden drop in blood pressure. This is known more commonly as septic shock. What are the signs of sepsis you should never ignore? If you, a loved one, or in the case of medical professionals their patient, feels "severely sick", doesn't appear to be themselves and shows any of the following symptoms, sepsis should be suspected: weakness loss of appetite fever and chills thirst difficult or rapid breathing rapid heart rate low blood pressure low urine output If a person is suffering these symptoms and they are thought to have suffered an infection - pneumonia, abdominal infection, urinary infection, or a wound - sepsis is a likely cause. #dylansarmy ...

Please accept our apologies for being what some would say a Grinch this time of year.

Every advert, every song on the radio brings back memories and makes us "Sad"

Please accept that we, at this time, can not respond quickly to your messages and at times come across as not appreciative of your fundraising, it's the opposite. Believe me/us it can not be further from the truth.

Every advert, every corporate festive email, every "social" well wishing at this time (whilst understanding they need to exist) still makes us feel "sad".

Just a couple of examples:
Dunelm - all getting together to dress the tree.
Range - Get everything you want this Christmas
Song - All i want for Christmas is you

We do not want to put a downer on Xmas but don't be offended when we are distant at this time. I often define things in what I call bubbles. The 1st bubble is ME, the 2nd bubble is Cath and Sophie, the 3rd is family, 4th is friends and the 5th is everyone else. We are still concentrating (at this time) in order and struggle to get to 3 and concentrating on 4 and 5 is way off xx

The New Year brings new hope and much strength with all the help our LEF friends and family.

I/we truly wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year (and that's not just words).

#muchlove
Neil, Cath and family. xxx
