Thank you Cindy. it was lovely day that started with solid rain. But lunch was at a cosy cafe in our Botanic Gardens with our son, DIL and baby Josie. Guess who had a lot of nursing from grandma.

We are off to Brisbane next week to see our DD and her family and help out in any way.The adults are so tired as our grandson is ravenous being on steroids and needs solid food during the night - sleep is in 2 hour shifts at the moment. The good news is that he is making his own platelets (needed for clotting) and red blood cells - so no transfusions from now on - fingers crossed. He will be assessed just after we come back to see which risk category he is in and then treatment will be modified. It is going to be a long year then on tenter hooks for the next 2.

My DD's gift arrived just on my birthday - a book about the secret life of trees - and a dinosaur birthday card with drawings from each of them of their favourite dinosaur. Love you all.

Today is the day to send a big Happy Birthday to Sandy B. Hope your day was filled with only the best.

Sandy good news about the lumber puncture, I assume to take bone marrow to see the white blood count. We went through with this with DD at age 16 they thought she may have Leukaemia but it turned out she had IPT. Which is a blood disorder after a few months of prednisone which didn't work for her she had her spleen removed, so is in remission but has not a very good immune system. One thing I found also when I had things on my mind was to keep busy, so try and get your sewing machine humming.
It is nice to know that we have a group such as this that we are able to share and support each other when problems come along, and also share our art and creativity.

Wow Cindy - one thing after another. Take care and all the best. Talk about going through the wars. And thank you for your care and kind words.

Phone call from our DD yesterday ended in tears but the news is wonderful. Yesterdays lumbar puncture was clear but they did wait 5 hours for the little boy to be seen - he was last on the list for the day. There is a regime of medication at home - we are so pleased we know this. Our SIL is not coping too well either - just paces and cannot seem to calm himself with an activity. They are going to see and talk to a councillor soon. Even though I am not a church goer I understand what BJ and you mean Ally. All the best everyone. It is Good Friday here and the sun is shining and my sewing machine is out of its storage place - in the shower base while we had new carpet laid a few weeks ago.

Oh my Cindy, so sorry to hear there are more problems that your DH must endure. Please know that you both are in our prayers. I can only echo BJ and Ally in saying hold strong to your faith and place your burdens on God's shoulders. Know you are loved and cared for.

Cindy so sorry your DH has more problems, I know you both must be exchusted with the stress of it all. As BJ says hold onto your faith it give us strength to meet things we have to deal with each day.
BJ I actually have enjoyed doing the blog sort of like a diary of events that I can look back on. People don't seem to respond so one is not sure if they are getting it. I also thought it would be great for my family in UK to look in on and see what we are doing. Paul signed up so he tells me when it goes through so hope the ones who sign up get it too.
Yesterday I went to a workshop for my Emb machine and made a purse in the hoop a technique that I haven't done before so was please with how it turned out. I posted the pic of it on Embroidery Buddies site on CT.

Oh Cindy, I can only imagine how you must be feeling... not another thing! Hold on to your faith - it will see you through, even on those days when there doesn't appear to be any light at the end of the tunnel.

Good afternoon ladies. So much happening in a all our lives. 

Sandy, again I send my best to you and your family during this difficult time. Having others to talk to certainly helps. 

Ally, thinking of you as well and pray that Paul will soon have all his troubles behind him. Both my hubby and son have been through what he's dealing with.

Terri, what a lot of work getting ready for your move. On top have been following your blog. What an adventure lay ahead of you! Look forward to photos of your new home and surrounding area.

Charlotte, may you have a speedy recovery and be back on your feet soon. It's good you have things to work on while recuperating.

And now for our latest news. I believe I mentioned that hubby has a compression fracture in his lower back. Last Friday he twisted his ankle and fell. Took him yesterday to have it checked finding he has broken a small bone in the ankle area. No cast or anything as it's so small it would be of no use. Then this morning he had problems that prompted me to take him to the ER. Upon a scan a tumor was found on his adrenal gland. It was seen once before and has now enlarged substancially. Will know more next week. I am not ready for another go round already.

Following both of your GREAT blogs. Mine has been in mothballs and continues to be that way for now. LOL

Sandy - what a blessing to have the knowledge and help from Linda! God is so good to put the people in our paths when we need them.

Comment by Ally Bryant on April 13, 2017 at 6:00am
Terri I have been following your blog. I too have started a blog I am going to try and do weekly, but that doesn't always happen, so if you are interested it is etchedinthreadbyally.blogspot.ca. I am still finding my way around and hope to improve on the layout as I learn, so if interested take a look.
Sandy I am glad that you got in touch with Linda H I am sure she would give you some good advice that you could hold onto. Glad to hear your son's baby and wife are doing well.
