An amazing day

Wow, wow, wow - we had a wonderful day today.

After I dropped Terence off at the train station this morning, I quickly went to the shops and then had a thought that it might be nice for Bianca to go visit her old daycare centre.

I phoned Sue, the manager at Polyhigh and she confirmed that they did not have any serious illnesses making the rounds at the moment. Bianca's whole face lit up when I told her that we would go for a visit.

At around 1:30pm today we arrived. Got there and we saw a big note on the board by the gate "Welcome back Bianca".

When we got there she got a present that one of the other children made for her:

I thought she would be all shy, but she just had the best time ever playing with all her friends including Amy and Edie.

Before afternoon tea, they had mat time and they all had to sit in a big circle and they sang songs. They asked Bianca if she would like to choose a song and she chose "Twinkle, twinkle little star". After a few more songs they asked Bianca if she would like to tell the group all about her Christmas. She jumped up, stood in the middle and proudly told the group that she got Hungry hungry hippos for Christmas and that she left milk and cake for Father Christmas.

After afternoon tea I asked her if she was done playing and she said "not yet".

Caitlyn visited the teachers in the under two section. She probably can't remember much about when she used to go, but she was quite fascinated with everything around her. She even joined in the water play and sat with the other kids when they did their afternoon tea.

Today felt so much like the old days, the days before Bianca got sick. It was just so great to see Bianca playing and laughing and having fun. She felt completely at home and all the children really made her feel so welcome. We'll have to do this again some time.

Medicines today:
  • Mercaptopurine - 1.5 tablet a night
  • Co-trimoxazole - 6.25ml twice a day

I'm so glad that Bianca had a great day. It's wonderful when things can start returning to normal. I hope you guys have many more days like that.
Pete is still really sick, but we are hoping that this won't last forever.
Have a great weekend.
Bridget and Peter

Now that sounds like a wonderful day! How great that Bianca was welcomed, but even greater that she stepped in so confidently.

We found your page from Angus and Kezia; not sure if I've posted before, but I check in about every day. My son Fergus finished his chemo for ALL back in June.

Best wishes to you all, and we'll keep checking in.
