I'm really scared of getting bandages taken off. I don't like bandage takings off more than surgeries. My mom says it's because I am a hairy little monkey. Last time I got them off I cried for a long time. My nurse said that she would do her very best to take them off nicely [...]

Hear me Roar!
This morning when I got up the doctors were in my room. They looked at me and made me do some of my muscle tests. One doctor said I was a bit weak on one side and saw that my neck doesn't really move. It was really hard for me to squeeze his hand. He [...]
When I woke up this morning I asked Mom if it was movie day. She said it was, and if I worked hard at physio and ate some food today I could go to the movie. I wasn't allowed to eat popcorn though because my tummy doesn't really like food yet. Instead I got to [...]
Ready for Surgery
This weekend I got to play with my friends here a lot! One of our favourite games is playing hospital. We all take turns playing doctor and we give the babies casts and x-rays and walkers. If the babies are bad, we give them morphine to stop them crying, but it's just a pretend needle. My [...]
A Famous Guy
A famous guy came to see me today at lunchtime. He was a hockey player and he is Canadian. I am too. Mom said his name was Brendan Gallagher. He had heard about my leprechaun trap, so I showed him a picture because the real thing got accidentally ripped the other day when I pulled out my [...]
I caught a leprechaun………almost!
Boy - these guys are so tricky. I didn't even know if they had been at my trap. When I put my hand in my trap, I could definitely feel something there. I was very excited. Then I grabbed something and it was a note. It said: Then I found some wrapped presents. This is what [...]
I’m Gonna Catch a Leprechaun
I have been super busy building my leprechaun trap. We put all kinds of things in it to get the leprechauns to come, and when they do they are gonna climb up my rainbow ladder (because they love colors and ladders). When they try to grab all my gold and green and blue coins in it, [...]
We had a very special weekend. Every day I am so surprised by how nice people are to us. This morning one of the cleaner people came in and brought my mom some fresh bagels. That was such a nice thing! It is very quiet here on the weekend. My friend Amber is gone now, [...]
I Lost My Tooth!
I was so excited yesterday. I finally had a wiggly tooth. I found it after school. I have been waiting for this day for a long time. We went around to tell everybody all about it. When we were eating supper, mom told me to hurry up and eat my mini-burgers. Then I noticed my [...]
An awesome weekend!
I had another awesome weekend! Grandma and my big sister Alecia flew all the way out to see me and we played and watched movies and played some more. I now have 12 Hot Wheels cars because Grandma got me one and my teacher keeps giving them to me for working hard. We played and [...]
