And, it is just that for us and we hope it will be for you, too.
First, to answer many of you who have been nice enough to ask about a progress report since the return of Steve’s Autoimmune Hepatitis, as we said in our last post, this is a long haul journey and not every day is wonderful with fatigue and some other symptoms still present, BUT we ARE slowly seeing some improvement. There are still a mix of up and down days but, helped by constant input from our Hepatologist, we’re working on more up days! Based on improving blood work results, the doctor is gradually reducing the medication with some additional changes anticipated in the next few weeks after an in-person visit with the doctor back in Chicago, next week. We all remain optimistic that things are headed in the right direction and with a change in his meds even more positive changes will occur.
That being said, as we write this, it’s Valentine’s Day and we’re together and that’s a VERY good thing, so we thought we’d share a few Valentine’s Day vibes with you.
For those of you who have asked, here are a few pictures of some of the decorations the Valentine’s Day fairy has spread around our house.
And, here’s a Valentine’s Day ornament from the year we got married.
And, one of our favorites, The hopeless romantic, Cyrano de Beargerac!
So, from our house to your house, we hope you have a very happy Valentine’s Day spent with the one/ones you love and, if you can’t be with them, we hope you’re wrapped in the warmth of some wonderful memories.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
