Finally a successful visit to Southampton…

Mia finally got to have her “magic sleep” that has been postponned for a couple of weeks now.  She was a bit nervous this morning and became tearful when we went into the anaesthetic room so Mummy had to sing “when Santa got stuck up the chimney” whilst she was put to sleep, Mia managed to join in through her tears and made the doctors and nurses laugh.  She successfully had her bone marrow aspirate and lumbar puncture with intra thecal chemo done and was in recovery within 30 minutes having a well deserved sleep.  When she woke up Mia was presented with a christmas gift from some students from a local school and as she had been such a good girl I let her open it straight away, she was delighted with her Hannah Montana Pen set.  Next she had her IV Vincristine (chemo) straight into “baby snake” and had some blood samples taken (also from “Baby snake”) she is not bothered at all when her central line is used which means these jobs take very little time.  By 12.00 she was finished with her treatments and we were homeward bound.  Just got to get through the yucky weekend medicine and 5 days of steroids now…  We are going to Pizza Express (again) for tea tomorrow for Henry’s birthday, then the Piam Brown Ward Christmas party in Southampton on Sunday so it’s going to be a busy weekend, I hope Mia’s steroid grumps don’t set in till Monday! 

The Christmas Tree and many hundreds of lights will be going up on Monday as Scotty has almost finished painting the lounge, I am very excited.
