Update: Half term October 2018
For half term we went to see Tim Peake’s space craft that is on display in Peterborough Cathedral. When Isaac was first ill and in hospital when they were trying to find out what was wrong in January 2016 before he was diagnosed he had to have an MRI scan. They expected the scan to take about 40 minutes and explained how he’d need to stay still. He told them he was going to just imagine he was Tim Peake going up to the space station. At school in December they’d watched him go into space and so he thought it was really clever that he could pretend too. During the MRI they found abnormalities to Isaac’s bone marrow and that he had a collapsed vertebrae, so the MRI ended up taking two hours. The guy doing the scan was talking to Isaac via a headset throughout and was asking him questions all about his journey to the space station and kept him distracted. As it had taken so long and Isaac had been so good, they gave him a certificate. Isaac continued to be interested in Tim Peake’s trip and was particularly excited when he came back to earth on his 10th birthday.
So it was really great going to see the spacecraft today.
