work update

I'm feeling much, much better this week. It's nice to get out of the house and be back at work (after being sick in bed for a week, ick)

One of the boys i nanny for has recently had an operation. He's 2 and had a dermis removed from his forehead, which involved a craniotomy (which is pretty much cutting him from ear to hear, peeling his face down and taking the front of his skull off so they can work behind the bone). He was in an induced coma and then ICU for about a week. The operation was 2wks ago but due to me being sick, today was the first day i had seen him since the op. It is unbeleivable how quickly and differently children react to such a major operation. He is behaving/acting/playing perfectly normal, if it weren't for the half shaved head and zig zag stitches across his skull you would never even know he had been to hospital. It's amazing, i was completely shocked at how well he's recovering. It's great.

Looking forward to work tomorrow and spending time with the kids and only a little over 2wks until i'm flying back to Darwin to see Mitchell (and go to Vietnam!!)
