A bit swapping classes around, and Francis was able to got back to school yesterday.
Recovering from surgery to remove some dead bone from his hip joint, and a biopsy to see establish the exact cause of the infection which his consultant believes to be osteomyelitis , he's a had a restful weekend and with a brace to support his leg, crutches and strong painkillers, he is no longer in pain.
He was eager to get back to school and will be driven there instead of the usual walk for as long as he need to be.
His friends are delighted to have him back and treating him with care and concern.
In our video Mama Sue gives us a fuller update and share her own anxieties.
