|Amanda & Rosemary with Oliver & Olivia|
When we returned home, we had a visitor. Amanda came to visit not us, but Olivia and Oliver. This sweet girl has fallen in love with our Shih Tzus. And they have fallen in love with Amanda.
Amanda was diagnosed with brain cancer last fall. Since then she has had to undergo radiation, chemotherapy etc., etc. But she has finished her chemo and is having an MRI today with the report coming tomorrow. Please join us in prayer for Amanda's healing! If this MRI is "clean," Amanda and her parents will not have to make the many and long trips o Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
It turns out that Amanda has had some care from our daughter, Holly. Holly is a Pediatric Hematologist and Oncologist. What a small world.
This is our last week here in Brown County. We are looking forward to the new scenery of Allegan, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and then Wisconsin.
We will be back in Indianapolis for John's appointment with Dr. Michael Lykens, pulmonary specialist. If released, we are heading west!
I am keeping hopes up that John will be released, but I just do not want John to be disappointed. Last week, John started coughing. We thought it was allergies. But I had to call Dr. Lykens anyway.
A prescription for antibiotics and steroids was necessary. Not because John was sick, but just to prevent the cough from developing into something worse. As it turns out, the antibiotic was necessary. The cough is 95% gone, therefore eliminating allergies.
This concerns me. What if I miss a sign or symptom and John gets sick again. When I make these calls to the doctors, I feel as if I am being an alarmist. But so far, let me repeat.... so far, I have been right.
When we shop, I insist that John does not open doors for me, that we wipe down shopping carts in the grocery, that he not touch merchandise. I even wipe things down as I put them into the shopping cart.
I am hoping that when he gets his CPAP next week and begins to sleep better, therefore not being so tired all the time, that his resistance to viruses and bacteria will increase. I don't even know if that is a factor. Time will tell.
Tomorrow, we take the motorhome to be wired for the trailer to tow the Miata. After the wiring and we pick up the trailer, we will take delivery of our bicycles.
Now the next question John is pondering is how to transport the bicycles. Hopefully, he will have an answer tomorrow.
I am off to my spinning wheel! This is the first opportunity to spin since Christmas Eve.
Till next time..... God bless!
