25 July 2011


This morning before school, Jeremy had an appointment at Australian Hearing Services. He had another audiogram, which thankfully showed no further hearing loss.

He also did some different tests - listening the recording of a man reading a sentence and then telling us what the man said. These tests were carried out both with and without his hearing aids, and then again with background noise. In all cases, Jeremy was able to understand what the man was saying.

17 July 2011

After church, we went to the Redkite Swans Family Day at the Sydney Football Stadium. This year, Stephanie and Jeremy had worked hard on their banner and were proud to win first prize in the banner competition! Unfortunately, the Sydney Swans didn't do as well in their match against the Freemantle Dockers!

Stephanie and Jeremy were happy to be part of a guard of honour as the Sydney Swans ran onto the Sydney Cricket Ground. We were pleased to see other Camperdown Ward survivors looking so well and to chat with their parents again.

Only a month to go before Jeremy has (hopefully) his last bone marrow aspirate on 17 August 2011.

T+668 or 22 months!

We are thankful that Jeremy is now 22 months post-transplant and that we could enjoy a holiday in Melbourne. Stephanie and Jeremy saw snow for the first time!
Actually, the "snow/crushed ice" playground was at Harbour Town shopping centre in Docklands - complete with 2 bubble machines on a level above spraying out foam as if it were "snowing".

They also had a wonderful day playing at Scienceworks, and of course loved to swim in the serviced apartment lap pool!
