Proud parent moment


Yesterday I went to the degree ceremony for my son's MSc; it's the second graduation we've been to for him and we hope to have a third in a couple of years time.

 I'm unbearably proud of him. He got two prizes as well as his degree: the money went on a new computer as his died just about the time he got the prizes.

He had CFS/ME for most of his High School years and had to take his GCSE*s at home because he was too ill to go in to school. It's wonderful to see him well and enjoying life.

 *In the UK you take your GCSEs at age 16.
