Noah really enjoyed the Tintin movie and there were no problems with his ileostomy bag (we had added a strip of hypafix to the side which may have done the trick). Paul said it was wonderful to hear Noah laughing out loud at some of the slapstick comedy.
Noah tells me his favourite part was "killing cranes" but I can not find any pictures of this.
I have two more papers to do at Massey next semester which is really half-time, so I'm hoping they will fit with what ever surgery or appointments Noah needs. In fact I'm thinking I should brush up on my medical school type learning in case I go back to work. I am even considering working for USMLE step (the American boards first exam) as my medical degree is 32 years old I may need to do this before being allowed to work in NZ. I am starting with embryology as this is very relevant to Hirschsprungs disease and realise I have forgotten everything I ever knew about the GI tract and its formation!
