Yesterday I had to go into the National Neurology Hospital for a Ketamine Infusion to see if it will help reduce the pain. I took trusty Henry with me, but he didn't even really see the light of day as I had a few problems while there. My heart rate dropped to 40 and my blood pressure went very low. Then I had some 'strange side effects' from the infusion and they had to stop it for a while. My younger son reckons I was stoned! Well if that is what it feels like you can keep it! Fortunately they were able to finish the infusion, but as such I was in London for a lot longer than we anticipated. Still I am hoping that it may perhaps have worked. We will see when I get on with my chores around the house this morning!
Anyway as such the boys didn't get to open the calendar yesterday, however they were very patient and waited until today.
It was Caleb's turn to open window number seven which he was delighted to do.
Connor, Peter, Henry & Elliot watch on with excitement.
I wonder what is inside?
Caleb pulls out a plastic bag...
He sits down to open it to find some tools for digging, a spade, a pick and an axe.
It is Elliot's turn next.
He finds window number eight and bends down to open it.
Elliot is thrilled to be opening a window as he doesn't get to join in with the others much as his hair is falling so much...
However, being Christmas the poor lad just couldn't be left out. In fact I think I will surprise him and also make him a Christmas outfit, carefully removing his blue jumper/sweater without hopefully losing too much hair!
He holds up his bag in excitement
He is so pleased to have got what look like dinosaur bones, and I couldn't have wished for a better surprise for this little lad.
Elliot sits down to work out how to put it all together, while the other lads crowd round.
They are all giving him helpful advice!
Looks like he has managed to get the rib cage together
Henry gives him a few more suggestions...
Yeah! The dinosaur is complete!
I don't think Elliot can quite believe his eyes!
Caleb and Elliot were well awarded for their patience yesterday and all the boys settle down for a morning of play.
