Today, we had to go to hospital for treatment and it was a theatre day. The day was a bit of a long day, but only because we had to be on the ward at 10:30. We also got our first set of beads today. There is a reward programme called "Beads of Courage". Basically for every procedure that Bianca undergoes she earns a bead. This is a visual representation of her experience and will allow her to be able to look back and feel proud of what she has achieved.
To date, since she was diagnosed 4 months ago, Bianca has earned 327 beads up to today. I did not have my updated list with me, so Bianca received 308 beads today. She also received beads that spell out her name as well as a bead for her birthday as she was in hospital on her birthday. She also received 3 milestone beads - each one for reaching 100 beads.
We will only be back at the hospital for blood tests on the 23rd of October.
