On Wednesday, 30th of August I went to Starship Children’s Hospital for an operation.
First I had to get changed into a hospital gown. Then I got wheeled into the operating room. I had bubblegum flavoured gas to put me to sleep.
When I woke up I was tired and grumpy. I got an ice block but only had the first lick. I gave Dad the rest and had a sleep. I slept for quite a while, waking up in-between.
In the afternoon I watched Netflix on the iPad until I went to sleep at 7:00pm. I got woken up at 8:00pm, 12:00am and 4:00am so that they could check my blood pressure.
There are screws going into my leg and a big brace around it. It hurts. I have a button that I can press if I am sore. It send medicine into the lure in my hand and down to my leg.
When I am ready, I will have a try on crutches. Once I can move around, I will be going home.
On Wednesday next week we will start turning the screws.
