Thank you

Just wanted to say that Arlo’s quilt has arrived and he absolutely loves it. It arrived on Friday when it was very cold so perfect timing. He really loves the character and recognises them which is lovely. He has been asking for it on his bed at night.

I can’t thank you all enough, it is so very beautiful and so Arlo, just a perfect quilt for him.

He is rather hard to get a photo of but I have done my best! I will try and get some more if I can but in the meantime here are some I have managed to get.

Biography

Arlo was born normally but at just 10 weeks he had his first seizure, which lasted 25 minutes. He then went on to have many very prolonged seizures, some lasting for over 2 hours, and spent a lot of time in hospital. He has difficulty eating, and once stopped for two years. He now has a PEG (tube directly into his stomach) for medication and to top up his feeding.

He is now nearly 10, but suffers from seizures and chronic insomnia every night. Thankfully these seizures are shorter than when he was younger. Arlo is one of the happiest people I know and gets enormous pleasure from children's characters.

His development stopped at 18 months and hasn't progressed since. He has very few words but one word he does use is 'blanket'! I know he would love a quilt.
