One of the things that most upset Chris about needing surgery is that we had to cancel our long awaited trip to Canada to stay with my sister in Vancouver for Christmas. It had been a year in the planning and we were all really looking forward to being with them on Christmas Day – but we’ve had to cancel that now.
In the last few weeks Chris has put up with a lot of different people examining his back and making him exercise and he has accepted it all without complaint. Equally, his older brother has accepted without complaint that all of our attention is current on Chris! I wanted to surprise them both with a holiday this half term as I think the whole family could do with a break from thinking about Scoliosis and spinal surgery.
I am so excited about it…we will swim in the Blue Lagoon, see waterfalls, gysers, volcanic lava fields, glaciers and icebergs…and hopefully (if we are lucky enough) we may even see the Northern Lights!
