There is much to look forward to in the coming year - our first visit to Rome in February and Steve's birthday in March, both before the next hospital assessment.
In 2012, I am going to try very hard not to get so stressed in the run up to these appointments, like I did last year. When time is precious, it's stupid to get so hung up about the possibility of bad news in the future that it spoils the present.
As long as Steve feels well, I think we may well look a little bit further beyond the three month time horizons that we have allowed to restrict our plans over the last two and a half years. If nothing else, we need to give some thought about how to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in May!
Whatever 2012 brings, I know that we will not be facing it alone. Support from our family and friends is priceless and we treasure it accordingly. Thank you all so much. We look forward to seeing many of you in the coming months. Time to get the calender out and pencil in some dates!
