How many of you watched the news this morning to see that the flu vaccine was only 3% effective - that explains it all. Wish though it had been announced earlier and perhaps I would have contact the Doctor for anti-viral drugs for my husband as suggested by someone on TV. On the positive side at least I know there is such a thing and if it hits us again I will know what to ask for! Having said all that I will be in the queue next year for the flu jab and dragging my husband behind me!
Last night was an open evening at school - our youngest daughter is starting to choose her GCSE subjects. Of course I want my husband included but am also aware that at 14 it is pretty embarassing being with your parents anyway without the added burden of an oxygen canister. I am so proud of my husband for acknowledging he needs it, walking around the enormous school plugged in and ensuring that conversations were about my daughters education. It is so different going into a shopping centre etc. - we don't know anyone but there in school we are known and it takes courage to face that.
AND my fabulous daughter who protectively carries his oxygen tank with a real air of caring. I asked her later if she found it embarassing and she was quite adamant that she didn't. She did admit that people had said cruel things to her but she chooses to ignore them. She said her friends didn't say anything and thats what matters.
Today I am very proud! Wishing you all a very healthy, happy weekend.
Lots of love TAD xxx
