Just taking it all in My Stride.

Over the next 3 or 4 days Mia enjoyed having visitors and generally getting used to being in the Hospital, there was a slight twist to the settling in period though and that was Dexamethasone (The Devil).

The Devil is a steroid given in large doses for 28 days to help attack the Leukaemia cells but it has side effects….   Tantrums (BIG ONES), mood swings, restlessness and increased appetite.

Scott and I had a favourite saying during these early days, “The highs are high and the lows are low”!

Harvey’s second visit to see Mia was pretty good she was happy to see him and even let him sit on her bed :-)

Dressing up and Making up became favourite past-times.

Visitors who got snapped during these few days include Grandad John (The Little Fat Guy…Mia’s words)

and Henry, Mia’s bestest boyfriend (Most of the time).  High praise has to go to Henry who did not snap back at Mia’s outbursts and he even wore make-up too!

    Hi Mia!
    My name is Rachel and I am a good friend of your Auntie Sam’s. I have met you, Harvey and your Mummy and Daddy too! (Always at Caleb and Jack’s birthday parties I think, because we love their parties! Especially the ‘Cowboy and Indians’ one and the bouncy castle!)
    I don’t know if you remember me?
    Keep smiling Mia (and dressing up!)
    Everybody DOES love you!
