It will have to do!

I don't like cakes that much, we never have them in the house - I am a cruel mother. Pete will buy some occasionally but they never interest me. Cookies do, I like cookies but cakes I can take em or leave em. So with the distinct lack of cakieness in this house this card I made last year will just have to do.

Pete went to the hospital yesterday to see Dominic, his Renal consultant (sounds posher than kidney guy) for his 3 month check. His kidney's are still functioning at the same level (Yay), his iron levels are still high (Yay) but his blood count has dropped back down to 86 (Boo) when it should be around 160. So he now has to have the EPO injections every 10 days instead of every 14 in the hope that this will use up the iron he has to make more blood. At the levels he is at he should be really having a blood transfusion BUT every time he has a blood transfusion it means that he is compatible with less donor kidneys so they need to be avoided if possible. He is feeling good at the moment and the news yesterday wasn't bad so all is good in the Tunbridge household.

Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog, we have moved the computer into the sitting room and I am currently precariously perched on the sofa trying to catch up with what I have already missed! It was great to see you yesterday.

Love the cake card, really pretty. You will have to let me know how it goes with the other one!
