Acabado, fini, finito , finished, complete!!! - Christmas Eve, 2012

Posted by Peta Long on Tuesday, December 25, 2012,

I am not sure where to start but Charlotte is finished radiotherapy and I feel really proud of our little girl who has had another massive couple of months. I missed being proud of her in the end-of-year ballet concert, or revel in her preschool Christmas play, or watch her progress in swimming or complete the preschool year BUT I am proud of a little girl who deals with what she does and at the end of a huge day says to her big sister; “let’s go home Madeleine and turn Katie Perry on a...

Beck and Rod

I was so tired after hospital just waiting, anticipating, all the possibilities and variables that might arise as part of this journey through treatment. I was so tired when I finished the day that I couldn’t even write a post or a reflection. Sorry! Last week didn’t start too well but by Friday we had finally come up with the best combinations of drugs to get Charlotte through r...
