Today marks the end of Freya's 8th week at the Royal Children's Hospital. She was admitted two weeks prior to her scheduled surgery due to a severe exacerbation of her Rasmussen’s Encephalitis.
We are now well into the swing of the hospital routine and daily rehabilitation sessions. Weekends that have previously been slow and quiet at the hospital are much more pleasurable now that Freya has been granted weekend day leave. This weekend she came home for a few hours, went shopping for new shoes that will fit her AFO, went to the local park where she bumped into her best friend Edie and saw her cousins Hannah, Joel and Julia.
Conversation is still a little difficult for Freya, but she is slowly getting better at staying focused and ‘on topic’.
Here is a photo of Freya delighted by a cake made for her by her friend Adele. Thanks Adele it was delicious – you are a fantastic cook just like your Mum!
