It has been so good having a visit from our son. He and Josie had been working very hard all week and didn’t get to us until about 10.45 p.m. They were very tired but I was glad they were cheered by the log fire. We’ve just had a delivery of logs so we are all set for the autumn and winter.
On Thursday and Court papers were finally signed and although we can’t relax, the other side must now respond, having assiduously ignored solicitors’ letters for three and a half years. It is a pity Raymond must keep recalling the dreadful day of the accident and no doubt he will be called to attend yet more medical examinations but now there will be a laid down timescale which, hopefully, the other side will have to adhere to. 2010 looks like being a difficult year for us all but perhaps by the end of it, we shall have come through it.
I am having problems with medical appointments which keep being re-arranged. It looks as if I shall be going to the Bone Marrow Clinic on Monday, but I don’t think they really know themselves. My December 17th appointment at the Ear Nose and Throat Clinic has been brought forward so I may get a bit of help on that front too. The PET scan looks as if it is to be arranged shortly. I would like to know when this will be so we can ensure that no arrangements we make will have to be cancelled.
Hopefully, I can soon begin to see a way forward to planning for my hospital stay. It is going to be difficult for all of us but it is the only way out. I just hope that people will understand that although the focus is on me, it is my family who have to bear the brunt of looking after me and supporting me.
Although my birthday is not until Tuesday, we had a celebratory lunch today as we could all be together – a wonderful day.
