Week 2 - Post Treatment

Today, Michael had a follow up appointment with Dr. Lee at RPCC. Overall, the doc was pleased with Michael's progress on recovery. His weight remains stable, his blood pressure is improved, his external skin burn is much healed, no signs of thrush. This is all good.

"Really?" Michael asked as he is having a hard time feeling this goodness. For him, his pain is an annoyingly manageable 2-3 on a scale of 1-10, with an occasional 10+ for some pesky tongue sore. His fatigue is constant, as is the presence of the mucus. However, he did say this morning that he thinks he is feeling a little better. Yay!

So, we have another follow up appointment in two weeks time, when we hope to see more signs of improvement.

On other news: Hannah and Finghin are doing well; Grandma enjoyed her weekend away in Vallejo with Caroline and Liam; the front garden continues its amazing transformation; looks like I have to admit to having a head cold and not allergies - yuck!

Recent thank you's: Kimberly for the driving; Angela for an amazing caregiver night out to see MUSE - Yay!; Declan, just because; Jim C. for being Jim and being there for us; Tamara, Michelle, Mary-Alice and Maribeth for continuing to hold and support our children at school. I know I am missing many as my head is stuffy and tired and it hurts a little.

Thank you all for your continuing calls, cards, thoughts, and emails. As always we feel so grateful, supported, loved, and nurtured.
