A visit tonight to see the Consultant at Ross Hall, about Son’s problems with his hands. It was one of those meetings which you dread, not knowing if the news will be good or bad. It turned-out to be like the curate’s egg…good and bad.
The prognosis seemed to be that it was not Wartenberg’s Neuritis, but some other form, of unknown origin. It also seems to suggest that it will ‘ burn itself out’, but no time scale was mentioned or offered.
But the pains will still continue for some time, and the number of pills will increase to try to control the pain which is incessant (except when sleeping).
So all is not yet right, he is still desperate to get back to work, and feel that he is again contributing to the business.
…..however, there is an end, if not in sight, then at least just over the horizon. Maybe this year, Santa will be kind after all!
So thanks to all those lovely people who have passed-on their good wishes, their prayers, and, in some cases, their experience…we will keep you informed.
