Kezia started school yesterday.
She has been so looking forward to it that it seems she hardly slept on Monday night waiting for school to open.No looking back to Nanda … except Nanda had forgotten her indoor shoes and had to go and fetch them.
And when Nanda went to pick her up, Kezia hadn’t been sure of the (NHS-speak) “protocol” for telling teacher that she wants to wee-wee, so was crossing her legs.
“Angus doesn’t have a teacher, Nanda doesn’t have a teacher, Pete doesn’t have a teacher, Paula doesn’t have a teacher, Stefan doesn’t have a teacher,
She will have to miss school for one day most weeks to go to hospital and we are concerned how she will be when she is on the dreaded Dexamethasone for four days a month, when she is moody and lethargic – first time round begins next Wednesday. Will she want to go school? If she does, how will she be? Her teacher has been briefed and we will just have to play it by ear.
I am relieved. Another milestone … not directly part of the leukaemia story but certainly related.
