My story

[p][b]Hi, I’m Bobby and thank you for visiting my fundraising page![/b][/p][p][b]I will be raising money for Birmingham Children's Hospital, by taking part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge in May. I have chosen to score 100 goals, from varied distances and at different locations.[/b][/p][p]Charities have suffered a massive loss in donations this passing year, due to the Coronavirus pandemic and Birmingham Children's Hospital hold a special place in mine and my families thoughts.[/p][p]Most of my friends and family will know that in October 2020, I was a patient on Ward 10 at the amazing Birmingham Children’s Hospital. [/p][p]My Mom and Auntie Leah took me to BCH, as I had a pain in my left hip, which got worst and worst over a few weeks and eventually resulted in being unable to walk. Over the course of these weeks and a few visits to the hospital, lots of blood tests, X-Rays and I then had a MRI scan (which was very hot... but I got to watch Toy story *at first in German- so I told them I needed it in English* 😃) Without any history of trauma or fever, we were all very confused and worried- but the hospital team were so amazing throughout these weeks and knew how to keep me calm. [/p][p]The MRI Scan shown Left Sacroilitis and Iliac Bone Osteomyelitis. Me and my Family finally knew what was wrong and were so thankful it could be treated. The infection would get better over the next few weeks in the Children's Hospital and with the help of the amazing Physio team- I could get started on trying to walk again. [/p][p]Whilst in hospital I had a few favourite Hospital staff members that helped me get through, especially Colin who would sing to me and make me and my dad laugh. My Dad stayed in hospital with me and helped me every step of the way. I felt very safe with my dad, because he is strong and was good at picking me up and pushing me in my wheel chair- he did everything for me. I got to play the X-box, which the play workers would bring round for the children on my ward and this kept us going 😃 [/p][p]I really want to say a massive thank you to everyone at the Birmingham Children’s hospital and to tell you: You're all amazing! [/p][p]I hope I can raise this money to help the Children's Hospital and help other Children to receive the care they need. All donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated. I also want to thank you- for taking the time to read my story and finding out why I will be taking part in The Captain Tom 100 Challenge.[/p][p]"Tomorrow will be a good day!" [/p][p]From Bobby 😃[/p][p][br][/p][p](My mom will be managing this page for me and tracking and keeping me up to date with your donations)[/p]
