New roads to travel and old ones revisited

Enrolled in an NHS study last night so now I’m officially getting tracked!  Seriously though, the stuff they do sounds interesting and I am glad to participate.  One of the apps seems to be draining my battery a little faster than I would like though.  I’ll have to mention it at our next catch up.  Right now I am not feeling too bad.  I feel like I am on the lower end of the depression cycle right now.  Good news for me, not so much for the study I guess. The study is for two years I think (my memory needs some work) so no doubt there will be many ups and downs during that period.  Here’s to hoping I can understand this a bit more and take control of it more effectively.  I’d settle for that.

The day before

This weekend has been slow and normally that would be a good thing! I can already hear you shouting at the screen “Don’t wish the weekend away!” The reason for this is that tomorrow we find out if the Cancer is back for Cleo which, try as I might, I think it is. Another lump has started to appear next to the one we found. There is not much else I can say about that except that we are not going to give up. Even though the odds are now more stacked against us. If it comes to the fact we are just pumping drugs into her and it is negatively affecting her quality of life we will stop but to me, a 50% chance is worth it. We just don’t know how soon we can tell if it works. Hopefully the vet will fill us in on our options …
