Back from our holiday...

Hi everyone we're back!

Blackpool was good fun and it only rained one day out of the five so that was a bit of a result!
Guess what?
It was warm enough for one of these!!

I'm glad we went as Coo kept relatively well while we were away...another bonus!

Things are maybe looking up again, I do hope so.

The highlight of the week was a visit to the Blackpool Zoo, honestly it's a brilliant day out!

They've got the lot including a Dinosaur Safari no less!

Coo was up and exploring the town all day so he was really tired in the evenings.

He fell asleep at 7 p.m. and looked a bit like this...

He got most annoyed with himself and said, for me, it must have been like going on holiday with our kids when they were small, when you had to be back in your room early!

We had a laugh about it when I said, we were there to chillout a bit and get some rest too!

We have come back stronger and ready to cope again.

All in all, we both had a real good time.

Health, hassles & holidays...

Hi all, things have been a bit difficult this last few weeks as Coo's been having more seizures.

His meds have been on that dreaded drug see-saw...again.
Coo's blood test 2 weeks ago revealed his meds were too low for no reason we could find, so we agreed to up the dose a little.

This has been a bit of a mistake as Coo has slept on and off all day, every day, his seizure activity came back up to 20-30 and he felt really poorly.

We've decided to cut the dose yet again and see what happens - up and down, up and down.
Poor Coo, I'm beginning to feel the see-saw effect myself!!

I'm hoping things do settle a bit as we're going away for a few days!
Thinking things would surely be more settled by now, last January,I booked a few days away.
I was so optomistic things would be ok by the Summer time and Coo'd be well enough and raring to go!

But do you know what?

I'm not really worried about it anymore.
Things will be what they'll be and we'll just pootle on as before!
It's now been a real long time since Coo was well and it's amazing how you just 'cope' don't you!

You stress and worry, think how will I manage? and sure as anything, the sun rises to a new day and so do you!

Maybe Coo will improve a bit and maybe he won't, even if he doesn't, we've both learned we can manage things and we'll be ok!

So inspite of all the health stuff and hassles we're going to Blackpool as planned well or not!

So Blackpool here we come...

We'll wander along the beach and eat ice-cream, do you think that's a bit optomistic for Blackpool in June? LOL

Maybe we'd do better packing some wellies and an umbrella!

No way!
It wouldn't dare rain on our parade - and if it does so what, we'll hide away in the tower!!

Happy days,
