update on Lorraines health

Well the rain has gone but I haven't been in the garden much
Spending a lot of time with Lorraine and I had the grandchildren for the weekend Put them to work
Brendan mowed the lawn for me
Mowed lawns make the place look so neat even if the weeds are growing higher than the plants
Lorraine finished two weeks of radiation last Monday and since then has been having trouble with her vision They have put it down to either the drug she is taking or a side effect to the radiation
We are hoping she will be able to see in time for her wedding which is approaching quickly
She will be starting some oral chemo in a couple of weeks They told her they can't start it to soon after the radiation as it could lead to dimentia, but they weren't to sure how long to wait
Well I'm off to do a bit of sewing before bed
Thanks again for all your support It means a lot

Thanks for the update on Lorraine. I will say a prayer that she will have her vision back for her wedding and a prayer for strength for you. How nice to have the Grandkids over, helps to take your mind off of things. Take care.

Splendid to get the children working - they enjoy helping and it is lovely for them to be able to help you. Well done all!
