A mixed week

Christmas was about as good as could be expected, but I did get to speak to my son (in India) for an hour. That, and the joy of watching my daughter opening the various presents under the tree, were real highlights. We seemed to have a few more presents than normal this year with a number being dropped off to the house (some anonymously) in the days leading up to Christmas.
I saw the specialist yesterday and my blood work seems to have improved slightly. The specialist is going to arrange a CT scan to compare with the one I had in hospital a while back. They can then look at the differences between the two and get some idea of what is going on inside in terms of tumors and swollen organs. That should happen in the next month or so (the wait time on the CT scanners at Auckland hospital is about 3 weeks or so).
Apart from the above little has changed. I know I am stronger than I was the last time I saw the specialist, but the improvement is small. I did drive myself to see him and have driven to a couple of places close by recently.
I thank those who contributed to our Xmas this year either with presents/cards/trust donations/ prayers. I wish everyone a joyous new year.
