Health update

Not much new on the health front and so not much to report, to be honest.  I do seem to have hit a degree of stability over the past several weeks.  I still need meds and oxygen but I am able to maintain what I have.  I did have a transfusion yesterday but my counts were actually up from the week before (which is very positive).  The only new problem that I will be facing now that summer is here is the humidity.  It does make breathing that much more difficult.  Tomorrow will the first real big test as it is supposed to be quite warm and we have had rain the last few days so it should be quite humid too.  Hopefully this old man will be breathing for Father’s Day!

Thanks to everyone who is praying for us.  We really do appreciate it.

Glad to hear that you are doing as well as you are. There are three or four people here in Guelph who often ask me how you are. We are praying for you. Do you have air-conditioning or at least a dehumidifier to help with the humidity?
