Hey everyone I just heard from Marty it seems little Beth is in a bad way really ill and has been in hospital for the last 3 weeks, there is a possibility she might be moved to the Great Ormond street hospital in London, anyway he said to let you all know he won't be around for a while, I have told him they are in my thoughts and prayers.
I know he'd appreciate your thoughts and prayers too.
Take care.
