31st May 2013

Victoria is home. Thank you to all who prayed for her and practically supported us during this past week.
After a 13 hour sleep on Wednesday night, Victoria woke up on Thursday morning with more energy and very well rested! Rested enough to start on a bit of school work. During the morning, Victoria kept asking about what her class would be doing, so with the help of her teacher we 'face-timed' the class. It was great, a real highlight of the day, and certainly made Victoria feel connected to what was happening at school.
We had a previously booked appointment with the occupational therapist, so being the wonderfully flexible people they are, they came down to the ward for the therapy session. The bed-sheets will not quite be the same, as the paint came out and went everywhere!
Whilst the therapy session was on, I had the opportunity to go to a morning tea for parents facilitated by Camp Quality and the paediatric oncology social worker. It was a good opportunity to meet some more parents and share stories, although it was a bit confronting and emotional at times.
Ken and his parents came up to visit again in the afternoon, when we got the good news that Victoria could come home, as long as she "laid low" for a while. The doctor's verdict was that it was indeed a virus, probably just the common cold, that was the cause of this week's drama!
Thank you again to everyone who helped us out or offered to help. Your assistance enabled our week to go as smoothly as possible. And it is another reminder of God's amazing provision for our family in this season.
Psalm 73v25-26 (AMP).  Whom have I in heaven but you? And I have no delight or desire on earth besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the Rock and firm strength of my heart and my Portion forever.
