Alan is in the process of having his annual review. He has had his bloods taken when we were at clinic 2 weeks ago. He went on Friday to have a x-ray and an abdominal scan, he did very well getting it done, he is brave. He has to go next week for a lung function test and a walking test, I'm not so hopeful he will do well in the walking test as his legs are sore most of the time. The results will be available to us at our appointment in March where we see the specialist from Glasgow, where they make the plan for Alan's treatment for the next year. So fingers crossed we get a good result.

Our pastime

Alan and I has been looking at an animal webcam in a place we visit in the summertime, its a safari park, they have a baby Rhino at the moment that you can look in on anytime which we do on a daily basis
Here is the link if you want to have a look.

Alan was at his aunts at the weekend, she got a rescue dog that Alan went to help choose, he loves spending time with her, she is called Holly. It gave Big Alan and I time to go our and have some quality time together which i enjoyed very much. I am in a happy place in my head just now and I'm loving feeling so positive looooong may it continue.

New Year

Long time, no blog.. I just don't know where the time has went.

Alan is keeping well at the moment with just the problems with his legs causing him problems but is coping well. He is now doing his insulin everyday himself now with no difficulties, which is lovely to see.
I made a decision in September to do some studying and took the route of studying with the open university so i could be at home with Alan and study in my own time. I have just completed an opening course called Starting with Psychology, i loved every minute of it. I'm currently doing Discovering psychology which is a longer course and i am finding it challenging but loving it. I feel its given me another focus rather than sitting worrying about things i cant change, all i can do is continue to do my best to keep Alan well.
Amy has also been nominated for North Ayrshire's young musician of the year, we are soooo proud of her, she plays the clarinet and keyboard.
Will post again soon.... that's a promise.
