Drs appointments...

I've been battling vertigo - which isn't pleasant! Hopefully it will start to clear up with some special exercises...

D has had this weird rash on his chest...I described it to our Dr telling him that I have been telling D to come in...
SHINGLES!?? D's on his way right now to squeeze in for a visit!!!

Poor guy has been battling this hacking cough, plus trying to write reports & help others using the new computer system at school. He's going to have to take time off work now. Oh well. He can stay warm & snug at home tomorrow. It's more important that his body recovers. 

We were talking last night. People often ask how D is going after the leukaemia. In case of life or death - he's obviously alive - so in that sense he is going well & has beaten the cancer, but in the sense that the body is dealing with lots of niggly things, it's a really hard road to climb. Last week foot cramps, this week coughing more & this rash, perhaps in the future it will be something else...the GVHD is really running around his body getting up to mischief. Just when you think you can take a breath something else happens...BUT, we trudge on. Because there's no alternative! Praying that God will let some of the days ahead go a little easier for us. 

In spite of all of this - there is lots of love & laughter & Miss Bonnie turns EIGHT next week. Don't know where that time has gone!!!!!!

Joy & tears - all jumbled up together. This is life. It wasn't meant to be this way, but it's the way it is. I wouldn't swap my life with anyone though.
