From the bottom of my heart…thank you to EVERYONE who supported us during the last several weeks. Our journey was easier for all of the cards, gifts, texts, FB messages, calls, flowers and love. I have been amazed by the support and feel so very grateful…and blessed. Thought you might enjoy seeing a bit of our adventure…
Last Thursday we checked into Moorfields Hospital to stay in the Ronald McDonald House. What a wonderful charity…I am forever thankful. Unfortunately, during the night Phoebe developed a bad tummy. So though, we were there with Monkey and in our PJs, they wouldn’t admit us into theatre. Time for Phoebe, Monkey and Laura (the Meerkat) to go back home.
On Monday morning, I drove back into London…2nd time lucky. They let her in. But because she wasn’t on the regular roster, we had to wait all morning for a slot. Lots and lots of time for art….And Dora watching….trying to forget the hunger pains…Strangely enough, getting the ‘Magic Cream’ was pretty traumatic. Phoebe didn’t want to have the plastic bandage on her hands. However, she was reassured to know that Monkey had the Magic Cream when he once had an operation.
And post operation….with a patch….Strangely enough, it helped for Phoebe to know exactly what was going on. I explained it al to her. She watched the cannula (IV) go in to her hand. And…she wanted to remove her bandage herself. The nurses were impressed.
We were released the same day…and on Tuesday we went out for a short walk.
Thank you again….love from us both….
