The Royal Children's Hospital

from w
Yesterday we were up at the new multi-million dollar Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne for nearly four hours visiting our grandson who had knee surgery on Friday and he is recovering well. It's a place of technology as well as beauty as the design is made to keep the place as cheerful and positive as possible. The atrium has sculptures, mobiles, games on a screen, an aquarium and very good cafes. All that is different from the sick kids of course but with cheerful paintings and signage, the architects and designers have done their best.

Looks fantastic, hope he is ok.

Jordan injured his knee a few years ago in a river accident in Fiji but circumstances, immigration matters, no medicare then, and a waiting list meant surgery had to wait. The accident caused a knee growth plate fusion which stopped one leg from lengthening. This is the first operation in a long process though. Hard to see your kin suffering but he's a brave kid of fifteen.
