Disaster averted

Yes, the telly is back again, although I've now discovered there is nothing worth watching tonight.  No pleasing me is there?

My counts have crept up a little today without the assistance of growth factor so that is good news. Also I am being taken off more and more drugs which I take as a good sign in preparation for the great escape!

There are still some more hoops to jump through including a liver scan, booked for tomorrow I believe.  I sometimes think the transplant team just sit around thinking up more tests but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and accept that they are naturally very cautious people. Also I need to spend some time being nebulised with a drug whose name I've forgotten, which I will need once a month, and that is booked for Thursday.  This is what I'd call cutting things fine.  I see the consultant tomorrow and will try to get a definite answer off her (I'll be lucky though).

A nice day with the family and Michelle visiting.  Michelle hasn't seen me since I lost my hair and says I have a nice shaped head!  You take all the compliments you can get!

Thanks Joan and Jackie for your comments.  It's a shame that the snow kept the numbers down (if not their appetites) for the service last night and that you had to miss it Jackie, I hope you are feeling better soon.

I'm now off to see if I can find something to watch on TV, just because I can.

  1. Hi Cathy
    Sorry, I haven't posted for a while, it was good to speak with you the other night. I have regained part of my voice, but only the lower ranges, so I still sound like a teenage boy with his voice breaking. I can't sing any carols either!
    Last week I took Cherry (and baby) to see Harry's carol service / nativity. It was all very sweet, although he was the only boy in the junior school.
    There were a few little girls with stunning voices, singing solos aged 5 or 6.
    Lola arrived yesterday, no problem getting here thankfully, and I am hoping Tansy will catch the train tomorrow instead of attempting to drive. Swansea and Cardiff both had mopre snow today so I think she would be better off trying the train!
    Robin is thoroughly enjoying his holiday, he hasn't managed to do his homework yet.
    It is good to hear that your count has started going up again, fingers crossed for you that you make it home in time for Christmas.
    I'm off to bed now, the dogs are waiting for me, must be past their bedtime
    Lots of love
