Pre-ops and rainbow catching...

Hi guys, we've been living quietly this week as Coo has a pre-op meeting tomorrow!

The stress of yet another hospital visit has been weighing heavily on both our minds!
The dreaded meeting with the anaesthetist is tomorrow and in some respects, I'm glad it's finally here but I feel sure it's going to bring it's own problems too so we are both a bit wary!

Poor Coo, it's been a real struggle this last week, lot's more seizures all probably down to stress. I kinda know how he feels though as if I had sleep seizures and needed a general anaesthetic, well, I'd be feeling wary about it too!
General Hospital visits are never easy.
Stress makes things worse for Coo and I, so part of me thinks, well, let's just get this first bit over with, and then wait and see what we are dealing with and the other part? Well, it says... more stress, more seizures and yet more hassles are looming right on our horizon!

I'm trying to be positive and one thing's for sure, we need to know what exactly is wrong with Coo this time and can it easily be treated and that's not going to be answered tomorrow but it's a step in the right direction!

I'm posting a lovely rainbow today, it's one of my favourite images.

I find them really restful and soothing, and I kinda like the idea of catching one and holding it for even just a little while! LOL

Wish us luck tomorrow! I've a feeling it's gonna be a long day so... I'm gonna try hard to catch hold of that rainbow and think of some happier times!

I hope you're doing ok where you are and having some happy thoughts too!

Health troubles...

Hi Guys, it seems that more health problems are in store for Coo and I and it's a worry.

Remember a few months ago? When I mentioned Coo needed to have some biopsies done? Well, thankfully everything seemed to be fine and the problem definately wasn't cancer.  The problem is, things have not really improved much for Coo so he needs more tests...again!

We've struggled with this issue as it's been decided Coo will need a general anaesthetic and with sleep seizures nobody really knows what the added risks will be - not good!
Anyways, we're now waiting on some info. from Coo's neurologist before we decide on our next move.
It's worrying times and you can imagine Coo and I are a bit stressed about the whole thing! Although considering the latest health hassles, we're doing ok! There's more seizures due to the stress but we're holding it together!

Guess what?
This weekend is our wedding anniversary so we're going to celebrate a little - even if it's just out to dinner! Our wee grand-daughter (and her parents!) are coming for a visit too so that should cheers us both up no end and bring some smiles back!

I'm not really what I think of as the average granny, a bit like this one...

...but I must say I really love being a granny! It's great fun! lol

I've decided this week I'm not going to worry about the hospital stuff. I'm going to push it from my mind and enjoy some family time - everything else can just wait!

I hope where you are you're having some settled times!
