YES, Sam finally was discharged this morning! He was so excited to be home knowing he can sleep here and that he can wake up in the morning when he likes and not at 6am when the 'blood lady' comes to do a finger prick blood test!
He has been home playing with his cars all afternoon. Each time he finds a car he hasn't seen in a few months it's like Christmas! His girls are very excited to have him home and lots of cuddles and tickling and giggling going on.
Even though he was in hospital, last week he got out to school on Thursday and Friday for the afternoons. Friday was the last day of school for two weeks as it is the start of the school holidays. When I took Sam in his teacher took me over to show me something very special and precious. The children in Sams class have been working all term on making a quilt. It is based on a book titled, 'A quilt for Kiri', by Don Long. This book is set in New Zealand. Kiri’s grandmother lives in the Cook Islands, and Kiri is devastated when she learns that her grandmother has died. When she receives a parcel in the post a few months later, Kiri is delighted to find her grandmother’s old quilt. She and her mother lovingly mend and wash the quilt, and it helps her and her father to remember grandmother and share special memories together.
Well the wall was covered in a beautiful quilt and the title of 'A quilt for Sam'.
