The highlight for today was going to see Circus Quirkus. Jeremy was offered free tickets by one of the nurses at Westmead. It turned out to be a very special treat, as it is a non-animal circus, and therefore particularly suitable for sick kids.
There was a happy clown who did lots of funny tricks, a juggler that could bounce/juggle up to 7 balls, and lots of dazzling acrobatics. 2 fairies tumbled around the stage in unison, whilst the Zim brothers - 3 acrobatic men - performed many astounding feats of acrobatics. One man stood on top of another, who stood on the 3rd man, and they toppled over and landed safely in a tumble roll. Another man juggled a slightly built lady with his feet, doing somersaults and tumbling over and over. Finally there was a "hula-hoop lady" who managed to do acrobatics whilst hanging from a metal hoop suspended high off the stage.
The kids had a great time at the show and have even managed to write thank you letters/drawings to the sponsors.
In other news... Jeremy is starting to receive a reduced dose of steroids. Hopefully this will mean he becomes less prone to the roid-rage, suffers less attacks of the munchies, and manages to sleep better overnight (and allow the rest of us to sleep through).
