One day at a time....

Another trip to Geelong today but happily it was just a day trip. Things with SH went a bit pear shaped after the last petscan when it showed his cancer had built up an immunity to the chemo he was having . Both of us and his doctor were very surprised as he had a great response to the first 3 cycles. It was a few days before his medical team decided on the next step. The heavy artillery was called in and a fortnight ago he spent 5 days in hospital in Geelong having a central line put in and receiving a different intensive chemo for 3 days. I am happy to say he has tolerated it really well and tiredness is his biggest complaint (not that he would admit even that!). Today the next steps were mapped out and we are back again next week for round 2 of this chemo. With some negotiation it was agreed he could do 2 days as an outpatient and should only have 2 days confined to a hospital bed. We will then have a week at home then a week in Geelong while they collect stem cells for a transplant. A long road still to travel but we have a plan and are focusing on that. Mum has again been a lifesaver and looks after home, the kids and the furry friends while we are away, one less thing to worry about!
Needless to say my time blog hopping is sporadic at best. I read what all my friends are up to as often as possible but have rarely found time to comment lately. I hope you understand.
There have been many special blessings from blogging friends, our family thank you from the bottom of our hearts xxx

Dear Lise,

I have been sitting here thinking what I can write and it saying what i want it to. In fact I have had a cup of tea and 4 digestive biscuits and not come up with the right words but I am thinking of your whole family and your posts are so positive.
Hugs to you too.
