Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

First Day of Treatment

on July 24, 2013

Step One, Phase One……….  First day down of this particular chapter of our journey and only 6 weeks and 2 days to go 🙂

Loaded up in the car with our enormous Pandora’s Box we headed to RCH and Peter Mac with “Nan & Tony” alongside all the way.

Blood tests, tablets and treatment……………Pippa still did not let us down!  She was brave, calm, happy, witty and gorgeous every step of the way.  This lump has clearly made the wrong choice of brains!! (not that anyone should ever have to endure one)

We arrived at our divine new “home” on St Kilda Rd overlooking Albert Park Lake to a small welcoming committee that included a bevy of goodies and a cute little fish now named “Bluebelle”.   Pippa had been excited all day to arrive which took the focus of the other purpose of our trip.  Nothing had been forgotten and it was very evident that a thoughtful group of friends and family had been hard at work over the last two days in preparation for us.

Thank You x
