9-Apr-2000 to 10-Apr-2000
Aidan and Mum spend the night at PMH for a dose of chemo; Aidan that
is, not Mum. All goes well. Aidan's pre-primary teacher, Miss Bingham dropped
by for a visit. Who says that boy is spoilt ?
Took Aidan for a BIG walk up to the local shop. He walked his wagon
all the way there, but ran out of steam for the return leg. Needless to
say, he returned IN the wagon. A most amusing sight for the casual observer.
Aidan has a mini-holiday with Aunty Flo, Uncle Rick and Patrick. It
will be his first holiday since he was diagnosed last year.
An old engineering friend of Trish's, Felicity, borrowed Aidan as an
excuse to go and watch Stuart Little
at the cinema. For readers from the USA, films usually appear in Australia
3 to 6 months after their release in the USA. Bummer. Dad tagged along
to make sure Aidan was OK, not to see the film which he most certainly
would not enjoy.
21-Apr-2000 to 25-Apr-2000 (Easter (aka. Bunny Season))
Loaded the car with most of the house and headed south to Myalup (near
Harvey) for the easter weekend with my parents and old family friends John
(don't call me Albert!) and Geraldine (aka. Gerrarine according to Caitlin).
It was a quiet spot for the most part which was good. Unfortunately Aidan
was still loaded with vincristine which wreaked havoc on his abdominal
muscles and rendered him a most unhappy chappy every night. In tradition
though, much chocolate was inhumed by big and little people and even more
port and vino by the larger people.

Aidan's occupational therapist (OT). Ranita, paid a visit upon his
pre-primary class at Walliston Primary to make some observations of his
activities during a typical day. Still waiting to hear the results. Aidan
was not so impressed because Ranita usually plays games with him in hospital,
but at school was a fly on the wall.
