This scare aside, Vicki's finished her first year at Catering College, holidayed in Turkey and Clacton, acquired a pet snake and is now relaxing enjoying the summer holiday doing what teenagers do best... nothing much! I have set her a task of cleaning up and tidying her room, which seems to be taking an inordinate amount of time. Ah well, you are only young once!

Time flies by, life goes on
OK, so it's been some time since my last post. Much has happened. The most significant issue was a set of blood tests that yielded some strange results. Initially I didn't know what to make of the results. The hospital were sufficiently worried to call Vicki back for further checks and more tests. Naturally I went into panic mode "Oh my God, here we go again" was the general theme of the moment. To make matters worse, just as I got this news, Vicki had left for a weeks holiday, so she wouldn't be able to attend hospital for another 10 days. 10 days of agony and worrying. However as it happened, these tests turned out to be a false alarm. Vicki's consultant said that the test results turned out to have no clinical value as subsequent tests had been in line with their original expectations. Phew. Still, for a short time it brought back all the feelings and emotions that I went through when Vicki was taken ill. Glad that episode is over.
