Hello my darling,
Last weekend you were in Parklands having your Pamidronate treatment. Until now you have been going for 3 days every 3 months, having treatment for 3 hours each day. Now that you weigh 13kg you only have to go again in March next year, and every 4 months thereafter! YAY!! That'll make your life easier my darling girl.
When I visited you the first day I asked you what you had on your hand (it was bandaged to hold the port in place). You said, "The doctor gave me a mosquito bite."
I had a cold so I didn't want to visit you in the ward. Mom and Dad brought you to the coffee shop so that we could sit together. I brought foxy (a red hand-puppet that I think is over 30 years old) and your little St Bernard puppy toy called Sparky. You were so pleased to see them - like they were real friends come to visit you.
On Sunday I brought Thandi, your little brown dolly, and Pink Panther. You asked if you come to my house after the hospital and I told you that it was Thandi's birthday and of course you had to come to the party. I bought mini cup-cakes and a few savoury snacks and when Mom and Dad brought you round in the afternoon we had a birthday party for Thandi. There were two candles in a cup-cake and you helped Thandi blow them out. We sang happy birthday (twice) and ate all the cakes and snacks. I think we must have a birthday party at least once a month, don't you?
