Show and Tell

Hello everybody, this is Bianca here.

Last night Mommy was up until very very late. She got some of my photos and she made a very special book all about me!

It was all about how our red blood cells are just like little postmen, but instead of delivering letters, they deliver oxygen to our bodies, the platelets are our tiny little doctors and each time we bump our knees and toes, they put their special plasters on and the white blood cells that are just like tiny little soldiers fighting the nasty bugs that want to give us colds. My soldiers are all sick and can't fight the bugs very well. They need special medicine to feel all better.

Mommy put lots and lots of photos in all about when I lost my hair and when I go to hospital for my special medicines. Even photos all about getting a finger prick and then a yummy lollipop for being very brave. I really like the photos when I get my special medicine in theatre that looks just like milk and makes me really sleepy. I told Mommy that it makes the hospital shake when they give it to me.

So then Mommy came to school today and I got to do a Show and Tell for my class - all by myself! I even got to sit in my teacher's chair - I felt so important! See how nice my classroom is?

My Mommy held up the photos so the class could see as I read my story to them. My Mommy said I read really well. She didn't even have to help me with any words.

Afterwards I got to show all my beads to my friends and they all wanted to know why I got all my beads. I know which ones I get for finger pricks, but Mommy had to help me remember some of them.

I gave my friends all a turn to touch my beads and to put it around their necks and then my teacher asked that they all come and put my beads around my neck - all 7 necklaces. I have lots of beads and I really like my beads.

Mommy let me give one of my books to my class to keep and she made one for me at home. I like reading stories that are about me. My teacher was so happy that I gave them a book and she lent me one of the really big books we read in class.

Please leave me some messages. I can read things all by myself now and I like it when I get messages that are just for me!

Hello Bianca
I loved your show and tell story. Your book looks lovely. Connor has also just learnt about the soldiers in his body. He never used to like to eat so I had to take him to a special doctor called a Dietician. She told him all about his soldiers in his body and how they need fruit and vegetables and meat to grow strong to fight off the enemies in his body. Now he is trying all sorts of different foods and he really likes peas. I don't really like peas but I eat them with him. What is your favourite vegetable? I made a star chart for him so that we can keep track of what he eats and he already has about 40 stars.
Please give Caitlyn a big hug from us and if you can hug yourself, please give yourself a big hug too.
Love Aunty Sharon

Hi Bianca, Well done for sharing your story with the class. That is so special. Laura is in year 3 at her school this year and she is enjoying it. Her best friend is Jess. Tomorrow she will go to Brownies and earlier this week she started a dance class. Laura has Luekeamia like you, she has nearly finished her medicine which is exciting. Have a good week at school.
Love Hannah and Laura

Hi Bianca -thats a very beautiful name by the way☺ Well done with "show and tell" you are a very clever little girl to be able to read all by yourself. I think when we move to Auckland I will bring my little boy Liam to you and you can read him stories. He loves "The Night Garden" we read it every night. Tell your mommy she is doing a great job raising such precious clever little girls!

Love

Hello Bianca
I love the photo of you and your Mom with your beads. You look so proud of those beads and you should be. Seriously you're one brave girl!
Your Mom's hair looks cool too!

Hi Bianca,
Wow seven necklaces of beads! Thats so many - you must be a very brave person. I've read about some of the really exciting adventures you've had and while some aren't great, like going to hospital and moving into dirty houses, you've also been very lucky especially doing experiments with Suzy - that must have been so much fun :) Best wishes for the rest of your treatment and your future.

I am very impressed that you can read all by yourself and that your class enjoyed your story.

Hi Bianca,
Well done with sharing your story with your class. That was really brave and it looked like you enjoyed yourself too.
It sounds like you have a really wonderful school.
Have a fantastic week.
Love Bridget and Pete
p.s. What colour bead do you get for finger pricks? Pete has been missing out on those ones.

Hi Bianca, my name is Felicity. I have a young friend who was told he had cancer in his leg when he was about your age. He is now 22 years old and his leg is strong. He is a tall, happy young man. You had such a great time at school with your mom and all your friends. And it's not everyday that anyone of us get to sit in the teacher's chair! You are a fine example to everyone. May our Heavenly Father bless you and your family every day. Lots of love to you.

Hi Bianca,
My name is Del and I live in Australia. I have been reading all about you and your amazing story for quite a while now. Learning all about you and your fantastic beads has helped me to learn about a friend and her little girl who is sick also.
Your book looks fantastic and it was great that you could share it with your class mates. I am really glad that you love going to school and having fun with your friends.
Hopefully one day you will come for a holiday to Australia and I can meet you.
Take care, love Del
