All your good wishes certainly paid off - thank you.
Elliott sailed through his first radiotherapy treatment yesterday.
We have been warned that later it does get more difficult but we are happy right now,
he has coped with his mask and is feeling confident.
Heading off to the hospital again today feeling a lot more positive.
Here is a photo that I forgot to share with you. When Elliott was having brain
surgery in King's, the staff gave him a soft toy dog.
(Elliott chose to name him Ned - short for needles!) He has become a sort of mascot.
When Elliott attended the Marsden to have his mask moulded the staff automatically
made one for Ned and here he is wearing it.
As you can see it does have a sort of Hannibal Lecter look about it!
Everyone's kindness has totally overwhelmed us and another amazing gesture is from
blog follower, Anne Riley Davies. A parcel arrived and we discovered it was a
Radiotherapy Calendar for Elliott. A gift for every day of his treatment!
Anne is sending them in batches and this is numbers 1-5.
As soon as he finished his treatment yesterday he opened gift number 1 and
he was very pleased to discover chocolate teddies.
I was very touched that he instantly gave one to Mitchell!
Thank you so much for your kindness Anne.
Today a very different card to share with you....it isn't my usual style at all!
I was asked to use this owl stamp - Christmas Hoot by Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine and
I turned my hand to a bit of colouring. It truly was a first attempt but I think he looks
quite a happy festive owl! I'm pretty sure my creative niche remains in die cutting but
sometimes it is good to step outside of our comfort zones.
Thanks again everyone and I will be back soon.
