    At least my GP seems to know what to look for when he gets the results!

    He says he is watching out for liver damage - and having had the required set of blood tests over the first year he's asked me to carry on having one quarterly for the next year to keep track of me really

    Best to all

    Thanks Andy. I was surprised too.
    One more question about insurance. Are we better on one policy, or just Mick on the specialist one and a bog standard one for the rest of us?
    Thanks

    Hi Shrew,
    We were advised to be on the same policy.

    I think it's because if Mick had to return home or cancel,which I am sure won't happen, you would want to return with him or cancel too.

    Good Luck
    Love Debbie x

    I agree with Deb, if you are on a separate policy and had to return because of something connected you wouldn’t be covered, when we went to Disney we all went on one policy.
