A goodbye party

On Thursday we had a bit of a farewell gathering to say thank you and show our appreciation to the wonderful hospital staff at Wellington Hospital and the wonderful people at the Child Cancer Foundation.

These people played such a huge part in our lives. They were with us from Day 1 of this journey. Of course in an ideal life it would have been nice if we never had to meet these people and if Bianca didn't get sick, but we couldn't have asked for better people to look after Bianca.

Bianca with some of the great people who looked after her:

From left to right: Sue, Kate (Ward 18 play specialist), Bianca, Jo (Day Stay nurse), Megan (Ward 19 play specialist).

Unfortunately not many people could make it because of their shifts or other commitments, but our thanks also go out to them.

Our final day at Wellington Hospital will be on the 9th of June so we will get to say goodbye to the others who couldn't make the little party.

Bianca had a great time playing silly games with her friends and she felt so proud giving them each a little card she made as well as a little present to say thank you.

All in all it was just a great day! A sad day, but a great day!

A big thank you to Sally and Marg for helping me organise this and for letting us use The Family Place.
