Harley Lane, 4, starts school after losing ALL his limbs to meningitis | Mail Online.

It’s early in the morning, I’m not feeling too great (been rough most of the week), I have had 3 hours sleep and looks like that may be all I get tonight but somehow that doesn’t seem important when you read stories like this.

As a dad of 3 kids I cannot imagine the challenges facing the parents as their lovely son was going through this terrible time not knowing if he would survive. Then he has both arms and legs amputated in an attempt to save his life and finally the boy pulls through and he is still ONLY 4 Years old.

Going to school can be a scary prospect for most kids but to go to school after all this is simply a blessing and it is truly heart warming that most of the other pupils have accepted him and WANT to be his friend.

With the right support Harley will grow into a wonderful person who may just give more to this world now that he has suffered something so traumatic so young.

I’m off to bed now to see if I can get some sleep, but if I don’t manage it, I won’t moan because, after reading this story, it’s not so bad 🙂
