Making good use of the Motability car while we've got it, yesterday Pads ventured out to enjoy Star Trek 'Into Darkness', and today he went in the hot tub. The sub-cut (subcuticular or 'below the skin') needle which delivers analgesia needed taking out and a new one inserted in a different site. The previous site had started to go bad and he's still got pain and a big colourful bruise on his right hip from it. After an hour and a half with no pain relief going in it was great that Jane was able to drive to us at Ruth's and make the change. It was lovely in Ruth's garden and Padi's wit was spritely, even if his speech was slurred having become worn out by the excursion. We're getting used carrying him up the stairs. He's generally pretty awake between the hours of 12 and 8pm, but it depends what he's been up to.
Simple but often quite offensive question. Why here/now? Because everyone needs to be saved and while you are still able to read this and before you sleep tonight you need to ensure you are at peace with your Maker through the Lord Jesus Christ Best place to start with this is on your knees and a copy of John's gospel (get a copy of John's Gospel)
Since August 2008 I've mainly used this blog to share updates about Pads and life with chemo after he was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma.
I can occasionally be seen here. I know it's a terrible picture but there arent many good ones with me aged >6
