We are back from a wonderful visit to Scotland and Ireland. The scenery was spectacular – oohs and aaahs at the top of virtually every hill and around every bend in the road – and there was no lack of tops o hills and bends in roads 🙂
And now we are packing up to head down to the States. Our grandson’s progress since his transplant has been a little like a roller coaster. Initially it looked as though the bone marrow transplant was taking, but then his cell counts started to drop, and then they essentially tanked. Difficulty days. A few days ago preparation began for another transplant, this time from another young sister. Then, two days ago, his cell counts showed a slight increase, and yesterday another, and today yet another, so ….. his counts are nowhere near what is required, but this may be a sign that his body is belatedly accepting the transplant 🙂 We are hoping and praying that that is the case .
His disposition has been amazing throughout all of this. We are so very proud of him. He’s quite a boy. Please please keep him in your prayers. We leave in the morning, and will probably be away for several weeks.
Yes, I have been keeping an eye on the news over the last few days. It’s not been what one would call nice news, but, I do believe necessary. Given the time I will try to get some articles posted this evening.
Also, time permitting, starting this evening, I shall try – as promised? – to get a few pictures of the trip posted ( A remind that there is still a lot of beauty in the world.)
Enough for now,
