A reprieve

So we’ve had some relatively positive news which is that my paraprotein has gone down ever so slightly which means my consultant is happy to keep me on the current treatment for the time being and not move me to DT Pace which I/ we were dreading!

It doesn’t mean he won’t change his mind, but it’s good news for now and we just have to just keep our fingers crossed that it doesn’t go up again quickly….and in fact that it goes down. The other impact is that my transplant will probably be a bit later than we’d expected….again it’ll all depend on what happens with the figures but it looks likely that it won’t be before the summer now rather than April/May.

That could be really good as it’s a nicer time to recuperate after my 3 weeks in hospital, will mean the kids can get to places in the light and also means we can keep getting work done on the house! We’re desperately trying to do as much as we can this year before the transplant so we can enjoy it after!! We just have to avoid when Rebecca does her Rangers community project in Romania as she doesn’t want to be worrying – sort of hoping we could go for a time just after she gets back in August!! But we’ll see!

Anyway, thought I’d just update the score as so many of you have been in touch and sent best wishes to us all – bear with us – it’s even more of a yo-yo for us than it is for you!!
