The reason for coming to Johannesburg is because our grandson is to have his tonsils and adenoids out and grommets put in his ears. The day before the op we took Oscar off to the pool at Zoo Lake for a last swim before his op.
Sarah and Adrien went off at the crack of dawn to the Donald Gordon Hospital with Oscar. The hospital is so conveniently situated near to their apartment it takes a few minutes to get there. Warren and I went over mid morning and waited around until he had slept off his anaesthetic. It was heart breaking seeing and chatting to Mothers of little children who have cancer. A seven year old boy in our ward has just been diagnosed with early stage of lymphatic cancer! The little girl next to Oscar was from Kenya and she has had a tracheotomy...and so the stories continue. It is time to hold our children and grandchildren really tight and to count our blessings.
