Easter weekend & Rottness Island

Last weekend we went away with the amazing Camp Quality Team. We all had such a fabulous time which is just what we needed. There were 11 other families who were also away for the weekend. To see our boys smiling, riding bikes kicking the footballs was absolutely precious. They loved seeing the quokkas, the boat ride over & espically the aqua park. Kaden was in his element, playing with all the kids & testing his balance on the blow up water obstacles. 

Due to the wet weather, we had a pretty quiet Easter weekend. The boys were so excited to wake up to their chocolate bunnies & hunt around the house for eggs. Today they surprised me by finding more that they had missed on Sunday 😃

Last week, Kaden made us very proud by achieving an Honor certificate at school. He was proud as punch & his smile was one of the biggest I have ever seen ❤️

Kaden has started back on the target thearpy drug at half a dose. He is still getting a little bit of a rash but as long as it remains mild, he should still be able to continue to take it. We have also been busy attending weekly physio appointments. It’s a struggle to get Kaden to do his stretches several times a day but he’s slowly coming around to the idea 😃







Evening rides, family time & CT scan

We have been enjoying afternoon/evening rides along the beach. It’s been so good to enjoy doing normal family things 😃 

We tried Kaden on the oral chemo drug again, however he has broken out in the rash like before, so we have stopped it. We’re waiting to hear from his doctor, to advise how they would like to proceed & whether they will look at changing the dose to a lower one. 

This weekend we met with “make a wish”. The team were lovely & very attentive to Kaden’s wish of an activity with water & super heroes👍🏻 The team will put Kaden’s wish ideas forward & we will find out in a few weeks if they will be able to grant Kaden’s wish.

Playing on the equipment at our local surf club. 

Exciting movement! 

On Friday, the doctors discharged Kaden from the hospital with a prescription of antibiotics. With the weather being a bit cooler on Sunday, we were able to take the boys for a bike ride to the surf club. The surf club playground has recently been upgraded with new swings, clumping tower & bbq’s. The boys had a great time playing there & were both challenging themselves by seeing how high they could climb. 

This week Kaden has shown us his determination in getting strong enough to run & play footy. Over the last few days he has been practicing his running & is as proud as punch of himself as we are of him 😃
