Well we've done really well! We have managed to stay out of hospital, apart from scheduled visits for almost a week now. We had a really rough Sunday and Monday, but Tuesday he improved, Wednesday he walked about 1.5 around the dog park and yesterday
he walked around paradise valley. It was so nice to be getting out and about as a family. Today we are in hospital for vincristine (sigh.....) and blood, he took longer to become nutripenic this time, normally he's starting to come up by now, and will have
required three blood transfusions in this round as opposed to two.
We've also had an exciting addition in our house this week. Emma our new NZ nanny has joined us. A month ago, Mike impressed on me that we really needed another one. I was a bit reluctant,
if it doesn't go well, it adds more stress to an already stressed environment. I also wanted to be sure to get someone who really likes kids too, and that would be good for Joshua, I actually prayed about it!
So, I sent my family letter off and Diana
our placement agent came back to me with three kiwi's! We sent our profile off to all of them and three days later we got this lovely email from a 20 year old lass in Whitianga. She wrote: ' you may not be interested in me because of this, but my brother died
of a brain tumor when he was nine And I'm all about having fun, I would love to meet your family.'
Emma arrived on Monday, and within an hour she had all three kids wrapped around her finger. A big thank you to the man upstairs for listening!
