A Good Report

YAY!! John got a good report from his renal specialist yesterday. It hit home just how far he has come since his battle with cryptococcal meningo-encephalitis in December when his specialist said they didn't know then if he would survive with his brain intact. John still has some word difficulties, searching for words when he speaks, but that is nothing compared to what could have been.
The kidney took a battering and dropped a little in function, but is holding steady, so no cause for concern. Back we go again in August, fingers crossed for smooth sailing till then, and for a long time to come.

What a week, what a night!

What a lovely night we had to top off a less than lovely week LOL.

Bradley's 21st birthday party went well, he isn't officially 21 until the 4th of June, but we celebrated and had a great night. A highlight was of course the much awaited chocolate fountain.

As usual I was worried about having enough food for the masses, but ended up with leftovers. Easy day today as I don't need to cook dinner or make dessert tonight.

The weather was beautiful and when it got a little chilly we lit the patio heater and it really worked.

Great way to end the week after being told the Kia we just spent another $1200 repairing has now cracked the engine and is not worth repairing. Oh and although the bank will lend us money for a car, we can't actually afford the repayments so it looks like we are stuck for at least the next 6 months or so. AARGH!!!

I'll have to share photos later as Blogger is not cooperating.
