Richard drove Jonathon in early with the wheelchair and walker as they were to be given a session on how to lift Tal into the chair and so give him a tour of the hospital outside his room.
Gethin stayed with me and enjoyed his favourite breakfast, we had managed to find Wheatabix.
When granddad got back we managed to get Great Grandad and Great Grandma on SKYPE .They are both justly proud of how they are coping with the new technology.
When we got to the hospital we were pleased to see Tal looking alert and happy.
He was pleased to tell us he had found the hospital shop and been allowed to spend some of his American dollars to buy some cars.
We then met MAD MIKE his physio, looking like a former hippie this guy is a great character and Tal has really taken to him.
This afternoon he had his first proper session in the activity or as Tal prefers play room.
He seems able to sit better in his chair despite the discomfort
He was excited to find the playroom has a firemans pole so as an avid fan of FIREMAN SAM he had to try it , albeit with the help of three adults.
He has to have hour sessions in the wheelchair then an hour bed rest .On the next trip he bought a tube of Rollos from the shop, even ate the last one!
We headed to the atrium where on the hour they play the theme from STAR WARS and mechanical flying machines swoop overhead.
When it was time to leave Tal cried because he wanted to come, and Gethin cried because he wanted to stay.Reports from Jonathon tell us he settled afterwards and Gethin certainly enjoyed his tea.
Like everyone the boys have been very patient but would really like family life to get back to normal, or as close to it as we can manage with everyone staying in the same place.
Last full day at the hospital tomorrow.
