I haven't been here much this past year and several times I have debated whether to shut down the blog, but a spark has always remained I have managed to keep going, but not anymore. Dave has had a massive MS relapse and in addition to attempting to provide an education for Benedict, supporting Pip through the daily woes of school and now the school run at either end of the day, providing meals, dealing with housework, working 16 hours a week to keep the Government happy and living with chronic pain, I am now involved in care tasks for Dave.
We are currently awaiting input from occupational therapy, neuro physio therapists, a brain scan, possible steroid treatment and a referral to another MS specialist for assessment regarding disease modifying drugs. I struggle through most days and no longer want the added burden of sharing our life on line.
Thank you the stalwarts who have faithfully encouraged us from afar over the years, some of you have even become friends :-) I will pop by and visit you when I can!
This blog will be left up in cyber space for a week and then I will set it to private. I am hoping to have the content here transferred to "blurb" or something similar so that Benedict and Pip have a record of part of their childhood.
