I have been a little remiss in the health updates lately mainly because progress is so slow that it seems to be just repeating the same thing over and over.
We believe there has been an improvement in the Cushings syndrome, there are visible signs with this disease, these indicate an improvement but she is suffering rather badly from both headaches and Joint pains (long term problems) and to allow her current medication to work properly she isn't allowed any anti-inflammatory's or strong pain killers.
This means that she is in almost constant pain and on her good days the pain is lessened a bit, while her bad days are pretty bad.
Because Vicki has a 30 year habit of being indispensable around the farm and because this is a busy time she does tend to push herself to the limit when she has a "good" day and then suffers the consequences for it (all this despite our best efforts to slow her down!!)
I have some concerns that her specialist has not scheduled any appointments for a 2 month period (unless there are any changes in her condition) so its pretty much sit and wait till then (June 23).
One can only assume that he knows what he is doing and that there will be an end to all this, meanwhile I feel about as handy as a hip-pocket in a singlet most of the time but at least we get lots of “family time” which is a very nice change.
I want to thank all you lovely people who have maintained this vigil with us, it is heart warming to know just how nice people are.
