Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - NEWS -

two days to a gen­eral sur­gi­cal ward so he could be with other chil­dren.

Kimmy said his re­cov­ery and cheery attitude stunned doc­tors.

“I met one of the sur­geons in the cor­ri­dor and he asked me how TJ was do­ing,” she said. “I said he should see for him­self. TJ was stand­ing up and went over to the doc­tor, shook his hand and said thank you for help­ing him. He was amaz­ing.

“The whole time he was in high de­pen­dency all he wanted to do was to play and go slid­ing along the cor­ri­dor.

“TJ is home now and get­ting on okay, but he is a bit quiet.”

She said she would be keep­ing a close eye on her cher­ished child’s phys­i­cal, emo­tional and psy­cho­log­i­cal progress.

She added: “I want to t h a n k e v e r y o n e who helped us that day and all of the am­bu­lance and hos­pi­tal staff who have taken such good care of TJ. I can’t speak of them highly enough.” And she added: “It re­ally is a mir­a­cle he is still alive. Some­one up there was watch­ing over him.” THE North-east was warned to­day to brace it­self for more wet weather.

Rain was ex­pected to ar­rive in the area to­mor­row while other parts of the coun­try were set for sun­shine.

A Met Of­fice spokesman said: “There will be a fair bit of cloud in the North­east.

“Sun­day af­ter­noon will see some rain ar­riv­ing and tem­per­a­tures will still be on the cool-ish side – around 14C (57F).”

And there’s no sign of sum­mer weather for the area next week ei­ther, al­though the rest of the coun­try will see tem­per­a­tures hit as high as 25C (77F).

“The rest of the week in Grampian will be pretty change­able but it’s not look­ing like sum­mer.” the spokesman said.

“Mon­day will be cloudier with some rain at times which will move south­wards to­wards Tues­day.

“We are start­ing Tues­day with a bit of cloud and rain but by the af­ter­noon it will get a bit brighter. “Wed­nes­day, again, will see more rain.”

He added that show­ers will con­tinue for the rest of the week and up to Sun­day.
