My Week...The stresses of Life!

We love our children, try and protect them from lifes crazies if we can...Teach them right from wrong...give them a cuddle or bandaid when they are hurt...but sometimes you just have no control of whats going to happen...
Wednesday, my eldest (in grade 6) came home from school traumatised-he had bruising on his shoulder from what another parent had done to him whilst on school grounds! As if this wasn't enough ...
Friday, we are told from our sons(same child) doctor, that he has to have a bone biopsy and that his osteocondroma(benine tumour) has grown a bit bigger on his upper arm,stretching all the nerves. We have to wait for the doctor to speak with another specialist who deals with tumours in children in Melbourne, to find out what to do next regarding an operation. So life has sent us a couple of hard blows these past few days, but I know that there are people out there worse off than us. So I am just trying to stay on top of things! I wanted to explain all this... in case things go a bit quiet on the blogging front, that its only because of doctors appointments etc.
On a much brighter note, I did manage to do some stitching on my "Home for the Summer" cushion (Anni Downs) earlier in the week. I hope to have it finished this weekend, as it takes my mind off things. for a little while at least!

I hope everything works out for you. What a horrid week, and how dare any adult lay a hand on someone elses child!

OMG! i can feel my blood boiling already! i would have spent the night in the watch house if this were my son. not a very mature response to such an incident, but it's over my dead body that another human will lay a hand on my flesh and blood. poor little mite, i hope all the tests goo well. give him a hug from me!
