Thank you Caysula,
Charlotte is doing well. Still gets dizzy spells. Told me today she is having some discomfort sitting on the hard chairs in class. Other wise she is ok. Is your daughter at School? I am glad she is doing well and you can breath a sigh of relief.

Hi, Dom is doing well thanks. He has coped much better being back at school than his mother has! Bad when you are driving him to school and he is patting your arm to comfort you! Funny he too, is finding it hard to adjust to the chairs and I will follow up if that doesn't settle. Reality set in a bit with all the things he is not allowed to do and it will be an adjustment sitting on the sidelines in PE classes. The physio has given him exercises he can do during PE if it really worries the teacher. This week will be another big step as he will be catching the bus home, as he did before the surgery. I am sure once again he will cope better than me. Hope your girls continue to do well.
Annette

Ladies I'm glad your kids are doing well and both back at school, we are not quite there yet, doctors don't want her to go back before the 6 week mark, which is in 3 weeks, and they want to work up to full days gradually, was it the same for you guys? Although she tires easily, she is quite mobile and only taking 5mg oxycontin at night and panadol during the day. I can imagine how uncomfortable those chairs at school are, maybe you should send a cushion in for the kids, a girl at my daughters school is still on cushions 18 months after her surgery. We visited the school today and she was able to catch up with friends and teachers, so that was a nice change for us both. We have real problems with sleeping patterns, poor thing can't sleep at night but is conking out early evening for a few hours any ideas on the best way to combat this? I'd love to hear more of your experiences when you have time. You have all been such an inspiration and very comforting in my times of need for moral support, I thank you again.
cheers
Sue
