Response from Lister Hospital

We've just seen Brooklyn's posting and, perhaps understandably, he wasn't able to provide the wider picture of his experience as you have just done. It now sounds like he had quite an ordeal facing him, especially the surgery. We know that our paediatric nursing colleagues are just fantastic at what they, but your account sets that out, in amazing detail, the lengths that they go to to ensure that children like Brooklyn have as 'normal' an experience as is possible under the circumstances. We'll make sure that your kind words reach them very quickly - we know that they'll be thrilled to read them. All that remains is to wish you and Brooklyn the very best for the future and that Brooklyn is soon up and about again as if nothing had ever happened.
