My new antidepressant did not work out; too much nausea and stomach issues. I have decided to go back on the previous one I was on...Cipralex. I am going through withdrawals again. Not fun. I will start back on Cipralex on Christmas day and take half the dose for two weeks and then go back on the full dose. I am done trying out other antidepressants. Please pray that I can get adjusted once again. Travis and Tiffany are travelling from Toronto to Welland to spend Christmas Eve with us. They will be staying over night and leaving again Christmas Day to travel to see Tiffany's family in Chatham. We are praying for safe travels of course. I want to say I so enjoyed the Celebration of the Season. It was the most encouraging day I've had in a long time. The children did such a wonderful job and I am thankful to all who made it all possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Church! Love you, forever and always!
Wil is home now. Therapists come once a week. In January they will be coming twice a week. He is improving, gaining strength and movement in his right leg. He’s able to take a few small steps with a cane and support or with the walker. Not getting much improvement in his arm yet. Had MRI of his head on Monday (December 12) and will go next week for results and will likely begin chemo for the brain tumour. Treatment for his prostate cancer is on hold until more tests are done. They are so thankful for the improvement he’s made and for prayers on his behalf.
