Adam got out for a break from the yesterday, so we all went home for some lunch (his second lunch, gotta love those steroids!!) and then went down to the beach for an ice cream and a short play on the swings. It was so mild, and so much fun...
So NOT what I thought this whole thing was going to be. I realise we're only one week in and things will get much tougher yet, but it's good to know--and good to share--that there are still moments to enjoy and laugh despite the enormity of the situation. Adam is still Adam, and the nurses are learning to keep their scissors out of reach or he'll grab them and throw them across the room faster than you can say "health and safety"! And at least one nurse has been on the receiving end of a friendly slap on the backside as he walked past--no matter how bad he might feel, there is evidently no reason to miss out on a butt-slap in Adam's opinion! :)
Here is a picture of Adam on his favourite swings, and the top one is him having a visit from some friends from his school. You can see his smile hasn't changed at all either!
