Since it was Tal’s last visit we were all invited…… even Gethin.
He worked hard for Blaire and showed off for Margaret.
As he was busy Mike passed by and we had a special”magic bag” for him.
There was also a new toy for his dog.Mike then got to meet Gethin and the famous turtle which goes everywhere with him.You always need to be on the look out for sharks!
Tal was back at work when Mike found him to say goodbye and thank you.
While Tal worked Gethin explored the treatment room.
Tal enjoys being the centre of attention and had three pretty ladies watching him.
Gethin looked for his own amusement.
Tal got onto a wobble board for a game of Skittles.
Meanwhile Gethin persuaded Grandad to help him climb the wall.
He then tried walking to Blaire, very tired his poor legs collapsed.
Tal was not daunted and got up again to give Blaire a hug.
He told her “I love you so much Blaire”
He was then promised to ride the bike all the way to the hospital shop.It was time for Blaire’s magic bag to appear.
As well as her photo Tal had given her a tiny princess dolly which had been the threat what would happen if Tal didn’t work hard.
At the shop Tal shows Blaire his favourite cars.
At the end of the session they videod his mobility to compare with pre-op.Their target had been to get him standing with canes and as you know we smashed through that one fairly quickly.
A dash home to start the tidy up and pack.Margaret left this afternoon thrilled with her visit and ready to share her experiences with other Welsh Physios.She even got to watch two of the ops this week.
We played a tag team watching the boys after their nap while the others packed.
Favourite activity was the pool which needed re-filling.
Tal is so much more relaxed, even around Gethin.
We had grandad on pool duty but Gethin thinks he is Fireman Sam.
The boys have been very happy both inside and out back of the house playing.
While the boys played the adults kept busy.
Jon has put together a wonderful video in tribute to Tal and all those who have helped him.Despite technical problems he now has it on the Vimeo page of Tals web page.Once he gets home he knew he would not have the time to do it…. work on Monday.
