Wow! What a wonderful response. Thank you David, Swim, Bronson, Tiger (my 13 year old is an Aussie Tiger fan!), Sephie, An, Donald (good luck with your treatment coming up), Andrew, Logo, Littlen, TC and Bill. Your good wishes are sincerely appreciated, and, as Sephie says... yes it feels very good...
The other blood test was minor, and indicates that arthritis the cause of the inflammation , but not significant so that's all good.
Swim,great to hear from you too. I always celebrate to hear of your Paul's good health. I will never forget the support you gave us in the early days.
Bronson, I have missed your postings. I hope you and Steve are holding up... I realise it is a stressful time for you. Your Aussie friend's jokes, which you never really got sometimes, but I did, were great, and I often passed them on, laughing all the way. If you and Steve ever come out this way to visit your Aussie friends and relatives, flip me an email and we can paint the town red (that means have fun!).
An, I really hope you can get on top of the employee situation. Nothing worse than having problems at work which you can't resolve, and family illness as well. A double whammy for you. Sincerely hope it resolves, and Paul's next PSA is good too. Take care of yourself An.
Sephie, I will be thinking of you at John's test-time. I will never forget that "bump" of his a few years back, and your moving posts around that time, and how you managed. I will keep you and John in my thoughts for another stunning zero this time around. It was a miracle for sure, what happened before.
Tony, thanks for flipping us your good wishes, and even sending them upside down (just for us ) but your spelling is still in need of some improvement as you keep leaving letters out!!
So "favourite" is the way you spell it my friend!
Thank you again everyone for taking time to respond to our good news, especially those with difficult struggles at the moment. My husband had a very happy time over coffee this morning as I read out all the responses. He is grateful for the on-going support and good wishes, and sends his good wishes to all.
cheers & thanks again, Lana
