Hi guys!
Things are a little bit more settled here and Coo's doing much better! Thank goodness for that!
Best of all...the sunshine has made a comeback! Woo hoo!

My pretty Tigerella tomatoes are coming on a treat! They taste really sweet too and are so much better than the shop-bought ones - result! lol

So, how was this week?
Well, basically it's all good! lol
I'm just enjoying the slower pace after last weeks struggles with Coo! I hope things stay settled 'n' sunny for a wee while - I sure could do with the rest! lol

Now, here's a thought...sunny care free days...wouldn't that be nice!
Hold that thought...
I really love this image, it seems to say freedom to me and it always makes me smile even when the sun doesn't shine!

Carer Struggles...

Hi guys.
What a night!
I'm not sure what has happened but Coo has taken another tumble. He was seizing every 20 minutes last night so we're both shattered and today is kinda cancelled...well for a little while! Once I've had another cup of tea and got it together it'll all be ok!

I know he's cut his mouth and his limbs are aching but other than that I'll just wait till he's fully awake to sort out the damages - poor Coo!

Other than that, it's raining again so I'm going to don my wellies carry on regardless! and hope for more settled days,

Testing times and Sunnier times too...

Hi guys, thankfully I can report some sunnier times this week!

The lovely sunshine has come back to share it's warmth and best of all Coo was able to persuade the medical people not to sedate him during last weeks tests, at least he didn't have to worry about seizing during the procedures and that was his (and my), main worry!

We managed ok. At least that bit is all over and we just need to wait for the biopsy results so fingers crossed everything will work out ok. I'm a little bit worried how things will fare, especially as we now know, Coo will not accept an anaesthetic in a hurry - let's just hope it doesn't come to that!

In other news...
Looby and Steven had their first scan wee baby B!

Coo and I are going to be grandparents! Now how about that!
Looby and Steven got their scan at the very same time Coo and I were in another hospital having his tests done!

It was good we had some pleasant news after such an ordeal for Coo.
How are Looby and Steven? Well all they could say was - "thank God it's only one baby" it seems there's twins in Steven's family and they both felt one was just fine and dandy! LOL

Our wee baby won't come until the new year but my goodness It's exciting already! LOL

I think I've been stung by the smiley bug! LOL

Happy Thoughts and (((hugs)))

Tumbling times...

Hi Guys, things have taken a bit of a tumble here!

Coo's been poorly and he's stressed out too - so yet more seizures are kicking around here right now!
He's had some troubles for a wee while and our doctor referred him to hospital - good you'd think? Well no...not to Coo!

He got the appointment in yesterday, it's for next week and already He's in a major flap about it. We've had major hissy-fits and grumpiness all day and I've been trying to be patient as I know he's upset!

Next, he's had a run-in with our son and that's never a good thing as they're kinda alike and neither really likes backing down - Typical!

Well, he's eventually admitted today, it's not the procedure he's bothered about, it's the fact they want to sedate him that's really stressed him out and now I think about it, if I had sleep seizures all the time, I'd be worried about that too!

So, we're back on the meds we keep for back-up at times such as these, to help calm things down. Poor Coo, I hope they start to kick-in soon!

I'm not really sure how I feel about this latest health problem.
I don't think I've had time to really take it all in yet as I've been too busy pacifying Coo!

What is it they say?
The life of a Carer is never easy?
Well, it's never boring either!

I'm posting a rainbow picture today...

I love rainbows, they make me smile and however stressed I feel, I always find them so very calming!

Let's think some happy thoughts and keep our chins up!
I hope things are more settled where you are!
