Yesterday I wrote about a little boy that was struggling here in the onkology ward. Late at night he did eat. He requested and ate some Chinese food. It is a constant struggle here, and he is not able to go home yet, but that was a step in the right direction.
Today Jemma had a rash on both her hands and feet. She has had the rash on her hands for a day or two, but the foot rash is new. She said her feet were hurting when she stood up. I don't think the rash is a huge issue, but it is something I will discuss with the doctor in the morning.
There is quite an extensive entertainment/education program here at the hospital. Once per week an art teacher comes. On a different day a music teacher comes, and on yet a third day a pre-school teacher visits. For the families there is a breakfast on Friday mornings and for the parents a coffee and cake brunch.
