We all made it to Mamma Mia! And it was well worth it. Sophie said it was better than the film and that is saying something!
Katie was feeling the boost provided by the steroids, her pain had eased and she felt quite well. We managed to get the doctors to agree to let her out for a few hours and we borrowed a wheelchair from her Grandma. I can’t fault the black cab drivers for their help and assistance with the wheelchair but I can’t say the same about the roads or their suspension! Katie was in pain with every bump and jolt, made worse by several diversions because a number of roads in Central London were still closed after the New Years Day parade. In fact the first cab was unable to get any where near the theatre so we opted to walk/push/roll a short distance before then getting in another cab! The next challenge was getting to our aisle seat! The only problem being that the aisle the seat was on was not accessible by wheelchair! On the plus side there was no queue for the disabled toilet unlike the ladies toilets.
So our brief trip around London with a wheelchair was quite an eye opener but, as I have already said, it was well worth it. The show was superb! Katie’s pain was a bit worse once we got back but hopefully she will manage to get comfortable and get some sleep. She has another blast of radiotherapy tomorrow morning and is not expecting to be discharged before Monday.
