Finally a chance to give an update . I’ve had difficulty with connections and re-charging my tablet.
First, our grandson is doing really really well. In the past two days his body has shown signs of accepting the new bone marrow. A cause for rejoicing. He has lost his hair, but white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets are just starting to show signs of settling in and getting to work. He is in good cheer and displaying a remarkable sense of humour. To date he has avoided being beset by that nasty mucisitis. There were signs that it was starting but thankfully it has not progressed beyond that.
Prayers are being answered. Thank you, and keep them going. He’s not out of the woods yet.
And the trip…
We have been on the go from dawn to dusk every day. The weather in Scotland was beautiful. We saw Loch Ness and even had a peek at St. Augustus Abbey.
We are now in Northern Ireland. I’m sitting outside our wee cottage looking up at the Glenn’s of Antrim, watching the ferries sail past from Scotland to Ireland, and listening to the waves crash on the shore. It’s a cool morning, but oh so very beautiful.
Yesterday was a run up to the Giant’s Causeway and Bushmills, and the beautiful drive along the Coast of Antrim.
Sorry but I haven’t sorted a way to get pictures posted using my tablet. If no luck in the coming days I’ll give you a good look at the beauty we have seen when I get home
Today is a quiet day – time to catch our breath in the morning and then decide where to go this afternoon. Tomorrow we’re in to Belfast, and Saturday we head South.
Now that things are working I’ll keep in touch as we go
