Grommets and Festivals


Its been a busy old week for us this week. On Thursday, Isla had Grommet surgery (her second time), and was an absolute superstar! She was given a Monkey whom she called "Grommet" the night before to help her sleep (we had many sleepless nights leading up to the surgery as she has a great understanding of medical procedures, due to Lucas' special needs), and other than a few wobbles when talking with the anaethetist as she wanted to convince him to put her to sleep with gas rather than with a cannula (which he agreed to), she was incredibly brave - visibly shaking, but holding it together tremendously. When we got home, I gave her a supersoft toy rabbit which a friend had made her. Her recovery has been great - you can tell when she is next due painkillers, as she gets really grumpy, but she has gone back to school this morning.

On Saturday, a Family Friend of ours had a festival to celebrate her 40th Birthday!  It was a truly awesome event - with every kind of entertainment you could imagine. There will be hundreds of pics, but here are our experiences. Lots of people camped overnight, but we thought that Isla might still be a bit fragile for that.
