I have just read my New Year’s blog from last year (here). We were in hospital with the flu, (which I didn’t know at the time of entry). It is a rather sad blog post, with some pretty virtuous resolutions at the end. 2013 just seemed to have nothing more than the same in stock for us and I was down about it. As it turned out I was almost right- treatment wise 2013 was a long, long Maintenance year. Nothing is mentionable now, few admissions, but nothing big. But we also had some really good times at Disneyland, and at the Malcolm Sargent House in Scotland, a place we are looking forward to return to this April.
2014, well, this year is different. I anticipate many firsts and lasts. Vega is scheduled to go off treatment at the end of May, a prospect that begins to fill me more and more with dread. Don’t get me wrong I am elated to leave all this behind, but the big, scary question is- Will we?
There is nothing, absolutely nothing I can do about it though, other than wait, hope, wish (I don’t pray per se, but might start chanting) and see.
This year will no doubt bring change, and I believe I should welcome that. A virtuous New Year’s resolution would be to Be Positive, but I am not sure I am that virtuous after two years on treatment. I might start small, something like eating better and saving some money.
Happy New Year to you all- may we be virtuous, healthy, and happy.
