We went for a wonderful impromptu family break at the weekend down to the coast (Charmouth) for some fossil hunting and of course to listen to the sound of the waves lapping the seashore....and to talk to the cows that we shared space with (we stayed on a farm !)....we did lots of 'normal' things including skimming stones into the sea, playing catch on the beach, lying down in the sunshine, had cooked breakfast, a fab meal out, played skittles, pool, darts....ahhhh, normality and fun family times.... don't we just love it ?!
Karena has had some ongoing off-and-on tummy pains for the last week but they seem to have gone as of today...very mysterious, and of course there's still a long way to go....the next milestone is the appointment with the consultant on 1st April when I think they will finalise the operation date....in the meantime, we're happy to stick with a normal life.
Stuff we're grateful for today :-
- Normal (almost) strength has returned - but she's not jumping through hoops just yet !
- Normal daily routine (walking to school, walking dog, cooking etc)
- Consultant appointment on 1st April - no surprises, only good news, date for operation etc
- Blood counts to recover quickly (they will be the limiting factor for the op as I understand it)
- Ongoing good health
