Update – Monday 22 July, 4.40pm

Against all the odds and the expectations of the doctors, Ned is still fighting on. He remains critically ill and faces the huge challenge of keeping his blood pressure stable long enough for his body to recover from the infection. It is his only chance. There is still no prognosis and we are taking it hour by hour.

I firmly believe that your love, prayers and positive energy is playing a part, so please, please keep them coming. He needs everything he’s got and everything we’ve got to get through this.

    Done another Matrix Energetics session on Ned. Firstly there was some energetic harmonising for a drug in his system, to bring him and it into alignment. Then his Master Endocrine Cranial system showed up again but this time leading to a vast expansion of his “heart space” and his connection into the zero point field – maybe to receive all the love and healing being sent to him from all around. Then there was a clearing of an old, stuck pattern in the lower left side of his heart – the best way I can describe it is to say it was like the energetic surgical application of some kind of angelic stent (this quantum stuff is multi-dimensional but I’m limited to trying to express it with my limited physical brain and language!) and the removal of a negative energetic pattern from around the bottom part of the heart. There was also a significant Respiratory System pattern adjusted – and lots of other stuff too but these were the biggest changes. Sending love to Ned and you all.

    I can’t possibly express how humbled, and in awe we are of all of you.
    Your words are beautifully written, and the amount of people sending love and positive thoughts to Ned could fill his ward several times over. We are all there with Ned in thought, wrapping our arms around him, trying to protect him and give him the strength to continue. He is making us all better people. Love to all of youxxxxx

    Hey Ned, I learnt from your Dad that he reads you these messages out loud so I thought I’d drop you a quick note/voicemail/dad mail.

    Firstly, thanks for being such a cordial host for my visit earlier this evening. Unflustered by all going around you and another strangish voice saying ‘hi’ amongst the bleeps.

    Personally I thought you looked a little better than the picture above (blame your father’s camera skills for that), and it was great to see you’ve got so many lovely medical types there looking after you.

    I promise these messages will be a bit more regular now I know that your dad is sharing them with you, perhaps over time I’ll even use BLOCK CAPITALS or perhaps the odd funny swear word (which you must promise not to repeat) just so your Dad has to read them out to you in PICU. I wonder what the funniest word we can get him so say is??

    So, have a great night, great some good rest, and a bit more recovering tomorrow eh? There’s a good lad. Speak tomorrow. Love Duncan
