Today has been a good, good day
The last three and a half weeks has seen Paul the recipient of some very cruel happenings. The GVHD saw his skin, eyes and mouth receive the equivalent of third degree burns. But, that light at the end of whats been a very long tunnel is starting to get brighter.
Two positives to report today.
Tuesday saw Paul at his regular ophthalmologist visit. They were really impressed with the huge amount of improvement and pleasingly everything still looks to have escaped permanent damage.
Better still it was such a beautiful day (sunny and 21) I was allowed to take Paul outside the hospital for a walk in a wheelchair. This is the first time he has been able to breath fresh air since he returned to hospital. To say he was in his element is an understatement, in fact I almost had to tie him down – got out of the chair and started doing laps. Think we now have a new afternoon routine – better than any vitamin pill.
So, just like a loner, when I had to vacate Middy’s Marriott for Paul’s afternoon spa treatment I found the nearest bar and celebrated by myself with a glass of wine 🙂
