Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Bandages and Boys

on July 13, 2013

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.

    Glad that Pippa is going great. Also happy that Patrick had a great day at Windy Hill, and hope that the boys have fun at the footy tomorrow, watching the boys have a big win! I should have given you the ‘Game Ears” for the game!

    Amazing what a good dose of Essendon Footie will do for Patrick!! He has kicked the footie on Windy Hill ground (Simon) attended an opening training session with the Bombers (Flick) – out of bed at 7am for this, and now he’s at the game (Libby/Anita) Thanks to all those who helped xx
