Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Bandages and Boys

Pippa woke as bright as a button this morning and did some drawings.  Lots of sleeping still, but she was able to have her bandage removed which feels great.  Another highlight of Pippa’s and my day was a surprise visit from Tony (my Dad).

Today, however, was more about the boys.  I wanted Pippa to have a really good rest day as I was expecting it to be a pretty yuck pain day coming off morphine – yet again she was a trooper and ended up having no pain at all.  A friend brought her boys in to pick up James & Patrick and they had a fun afternoon playing Laser Strike at Crown and eating junk food!  When they eventually came back to the hospital laughing and kicking the footy as they walked in, they then decided to embark on a game of “Elevator Tiggy”

Early this morning Patrick was kindly picked up by a friend and taken to Windy Hill for an open Essendon Training Session.  In one word – Awesome!  I think the grin says it all!  He’s still smiling because he’s backing it up with tickets to the Bombers match tomorrow.
