On Thursday Luca got to visit a part of the Children’s Hospital that he hadn’t been to before – the Day Medical Unit. Luca was here for an iron infusion (to try and boost his haemoglobin levels). We were in there for just under 2 and half hours and this may become a 3 monthly routine. A small amount of time compared to many children who spend many hours of their days and weeks in here hooked up to drips and IV’s for various medical reasons. I was able to observe the RCH teacher going around to several primary and high school aged children, giving lessons and checking in with them to make sure they were able to keep up with their school work as well as have someone to whom to talk. He also spent time with the little ones and their siblings setting up fun activities and games to make the time go faster. It really does take a special kind of person to do this job and it’s a big reason we like to fundraise and support the RCH.
