3. Is Jack still drawing?
Sorry, but Jack is no longer taking drawing requests. Don’t worry, he is still doing normal drawing for his age, both in school and at home. Jack Draws Anything has come to The End.
4. What is/was wrong with Jack’s brother Noah?
Since he was 3 months old, Noah has had chest problems. When he gets any kind of cold or viral infection, it gets very serious for him. It turns into bronchiolitis, pneumonia and other types of chest infections that put his life in danger. He has trouble breathing, coughs a lot, high temperature, sickness and is generally very unwell. He needs medicine and oxygen. Sometimes he needs to go to hospital and receive extra care. When its very bad he can be admitted for days at a time. He has been to the High Dependency unit on a number of occasions. We reckon he has been into Hospital 20+ times.
