Four weeks and five operations later 1

I wanted to get to this sooner, but really, nothing was important than being there with Will as much as possible, and I didn’t always feel like writing things down. But that’s changed. We brought Will home tonight. Well, home in as much as the hospital apartments that I’ve been living in for a month ...

And today was the big one

Yes, today was the day, the big kidney donation and transplant to Will double-whammy. And yes, you can bet I’ve written this well after the fact, because I was certainly in no position to write anything on this day! And retrospectively, you can be sure it all went very well 🙂 Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

On being a kidney donor
Pic of Will I took tonight — he’s absolutely fine, just lying on the floor being a bit silly! I guess the title sets it out what is happening. Everyone I work with and my close family already know about it, but I felt like something needed to be said to the “cyber world” out ...

Odd times and changing times

Odd times and changing times
It’s been pretty odd times for the last couple of months. Sallie, Will and Ben have basically been permanently in Sydney since the end of August because Will has to have dialysis now. Not good, but he’s handling it well and they seem happy enough, just not here. Which is never easy for us. So ...

The smiler…

The smiler...
Ben is just past nine months old now… And he’s just getting some personality 🙂 This is him sitting up in a baby pod… I think he felt more at home already. -31.274645149.281277Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Happy Birthday Lachie!

Happy Birthday Lachie!
Happy birthday to our wonderfully chatty, funny, helpful and clever good boy Lachlan 🙂 He’s three today, and he already talks our ears off and impresses us every day. Lachie had an entirely Thomas the Tank Engine themed birthday, as anyone who knows him would expect. That’s what he loves — trains, trains and more ...

Happy Mothers Day 2012

Happy Mothers Day 2012
Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there. They do a lot for sons and husbands and children all year round, so the least we can do is repay them whenever we can, but at least on one day 🙂 Made the all-day effort with pancakes in the morning (which is the standard Sunday ...
