Well, it's been 6 months now since my darling was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia. A 6 month rocky road of Chemotherapy, Cardic failure, endless infections and more time in hospital than anyone could want. Our lives have virtually been on hold for that time. At last we seem to have come close to the end of the journey, Chemo is over and the specialist is extremely happy with the results. As he has said, the disease seems to have gone to sleep nicely, to which my wife replied that she hoped that it has gone into a bloody coma, not just sleep.
Now it is just a case of the time needed for her body to recover from the ravages of both the Leukaemia and the treatment. It is also time to rekindle my enthusiasm for woodworking and other crafts. To plan again for photoshoots in places we both want to see. To make sure we hold on to the lessons we have learnt during this period.
We have to remember that each day is precious.That we need to be thankful for everything we have, rather than worry about what we thought we wanted. And we need to remember to live in the moment rather than clinging to the past or obsessing about the future.
Thank you to all those that have appreciated my limited offerings during this time. The connection to the dA community has helped to fill in those long hours when little else was possible. Now life is beckoning again and we have to run and join it.
