Just wanted to stop by and wish a big Merry Christmas to everyone. I still stop by and keep an eye on all you folks now and then. I am doing pretty good, platelets still hang around the low 100's but that's all good. I hope everyone is doing ok and that the next 12 months is kind to you all.
Anyway have a great Christmas and enjoy your friends, family and remember to be happy
Happy Christmas everyone!
We celebrate with a Christmas Eve Church service involving the Sunday School children ABC nativity & our singing group.
Then we spent Christmas Day with our growing family - first gourmet breakfast here at home, then lunch & afternoon on the farm. 8 little boys tearing around, lovely cold meat, salads & desserts, gift exchanging etc. The highlight was our son taking 5 little boys for a ride in a trailer behind the ride on mower, all with ear muffs & helmets on! Was hilarious!
We managed to get a great family photo including Greg's parents who are both 89! We had mild weather which helped everyone cope.
Many blessings in the new year ahead.
Good to hear from you, Milly, and that you are doing well. Thanks for encouraging those who needed to hear that it's possible to live well with ITP. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. Wishing you all a healthy New Year.
Christine... Thanks for sharing the video, it's really lovely. MJ that family of yours just keeps getting bigger, so many boys, they must be so much fun, my grandies are now teenagers and I miss the younger years when their lives where simple, teens are very complicated
Norma it's so nice to hear from you... I think of all the young ones here all the time and wonder how they are, I stopped by a little while ago looking for a post to see how Dougie was going and see Alli said he has had the best year, this made me happy.
I have found the friendships that I made here when I was in the depths of ITP to be a great help and support, I bit of a reality check when you feel that things are hopeless... I am doing well, I am always bruised but I assume that's just a side effect of lower then average counts, nothing major just bruise easier then most. Will the ITP come back??? Who knows, but I know next time around I am better informed and stronger because of everyone here, for that alone I thank all of you.
Yes, family still growing . . . another baby due in the next 2 weeks & we don't what it is!
I have an aluminium jewellery tree with coloured glass angels for every one of my little boys so far. I have a pink one stashed - will let you know!
