Loves Nursery

Paige's Lumbar Puncture has been postponed to this Friday March 22nd because the 'list' was too long for last week Tuesday. This I thought was a blessing in disguise because it meant that Paige could swim last Wednesday and more importantly, being there on a Friday reduces the probability of having to deal with the unpleasant anesthetist.

Paige has now had two swimming lessons and lunch in the main dining hall. She absolutely loves it at the West Hill Park Nursery! Today she participated in the Easter Bonnet parade, proudly wearing her bonnet made with love by Mummy, Samuel and finishing touches by Paige. I am such an emotional mess that I cried at the school's main assembly while she was at school, sitting so nicely with the other nursery kids. After the parade I left and she said "bye mummy see you later". She is so confident and eager to learn and be with kids her own age. It must also be quite refreshing for her to be with other healthy kids as well. Credit is also due to her key carer Becca for making her so comfortable and welcome, poor heart she had to change Paige's nappy and it occurred to me that it was the first time that someone other than Russell or I had done that.

Of course we had to make bonnets for both Samuel and Paige.

School closes this week for 3 1/2 weeks so if I survive I will update the blog weekly. Her next round of Chemo and steroids is due next week Monday. Never thought that I would say this but I am looking forward to her eating again, her weight is back down to 12.1kgs and she seems to have lost her appetite. Results from last week still showed a rather low level for her hemoglobin, we haven't had much success with her taking her iron supplements.

Blood results for today are now delayed because her sample clotted, not a surprise really given today's process. Hopefully we'll have better luck tomorrow because her last swimming lesson for the term is this Wednesday.

So the countdown to July continues and we're looking forward to an uneventful Easter holidays.
