What's the progress Doc?
Another health update on my favourite daughter Vicki.
Please click on photos to enbiggen.
To make this one a little different I thought I would take you on a trip
back through Vicki's life, here we see "Mary Poppins and Bert" AKA
Vicki and her older brother Alan, on their way to a fancy dress party.
Jumping forward a few years this shows Vicki combing her hair on her honeymoon.
Again a jump of a few years Marcus and Vicki relaxing near the Adelaide unit which
is our temporary home at the moment.
Rex and Vicki about three years ago, she was positively blooming at this time.
About six months later, when the Cushings disease was at its worst, the puffiness
of her face made her almost unrecognizable then.
At Christmas 2008 in WA there was a marked improvement.
This photo taken today shows a lovely face, clear skin and bright shiny eyes,
I forgot to check whether she had a wet nose like Timmy!!!!
From this you will be able to tell that we are holding out hope that maybe she
has turned the corner and is on the road to a full recovery, sad to say she still
suffers a lot of joint pains and some headaches (these seem to be lessening
The chiropractic clinic she is attending is staffed by a lovely group of caring
people who are very professional in their work, she has now progressed from
just manipulation to an exercise program in what she describes as the torture
chamber.... enough said!!!!
In addition to this, (and with the clinics full approval) she has also enrolled
in a hydro-therapy clinic, this commences next Monday so we will wait and
see what results come from this too, you can see from this that her
chauffeur is being grossly underpaid, there will be a minimum of 7 medical
appointments per week!!!!
You just know that nothing is too much for my FD though.
