2 Out Of 4 Ain’t Bad

I am a lazy blogger. I learned it from my cat. Truth be told, I am a really lazy blogger. I stole those lines from my friend’s blog.

Things have been going okay in the greater scheme. We haven’t heard any new news on the donor front lately. As far as we know, one of our three potential donors has his tests booked for the week after Christmas, one is waiting to see whether the tests she has done are clear enough for the transplant team to use or if she has to have them redone, and we’re not quite sure what is going on with the other potential donor at this point; we’re waiting to hear where things are at with him.

In health news, Joey has not had the best week. That said, things have been worse. The day after he was discharged from hospital, we thought he might have to go back in because he had a really high fever. Luckily, we were able to treat it at home and he could remain a free man. This enabled us to go to Victoria to celebrate my sister’s graduation from the environment science program at Royal Roads:

Way to go big sissy!

This also enabled us to see some (but sadly, not all) of our friends from Victoria. This was a tricky task, as Joey has a very limited amount of energy. I usually just wake him up to eat lunch and dinner; he usually stays awake for a couple of hours for each and then goes back to bed. This meant that if things worked perfectly, we could visit with friends/fam for 4 meals total. Unfortunately, things did not go perfectly (when do they ever?) But, as Meatloaf says, 2 out of 4 ain’t bad. That is what he said, right? Apologies to our peeps who we didn’t get to see.

We’d also like to congratulate our friends Chrissy, Travis, and Eli on the arrival of Kalli, their new little baby. Apparently, baby-whisperer Joey’s presence at dinner on Monday night was enough to induce Chrissy’s labour so we could meet the little gal. Or at least that’s what Joey is claiming.

Happy Halloween everyone!
