Jude went downhill fast on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning and in the early hours of Wednesday was transferred to Intensive Care at the Childrens Hospital.

Part of his lung had collapsed and he was having to work really hard to breath and they thought he may need to be ventilated – something they wished to avoid as it can be difficult getting them off the ventilator.

He’s not well but so far they have maintained him just on oxygen although did consider using something called a cpap mask which forces oxygen in but they have not had to do this so far. His blood gases are improving and we’re just waiting for him to get better now.

Jude is in the same bed space that his brother Joe was in almost 9 years to the day which is a little weird….
