It seems that this week turned out particularly good and so far we haven't had any bad steroid side-effects. Bianca's been happy, coped really well with school. I'm so pleased because I had Caitlyn the whole week with me and Terence was in Wellington for the week. Today I'm a bit tired though so I am very pleased Terence is back.
I also learned that at least 2 people that I have come to know through this cancer journey will be making their way from Wellington to Auckland really soon for their treatment. I feel so sorry and so sad for them. It must be so hard to deal with on top of everything else. But I'm not surprised it happened, I just feel sad that it's come to this.

I also read in the printed copy of The Dominion Post: "Stocks of AB blood group have fallen to low levels, the Blood Service says. Levels of the AB negative and positive blood group are the lowest in six years. Group O blood levels were also low". So if you are in a position to donate, please do so. There are so many people right now who need a blood transfusion to help save their lives. You too can make a difference and become a hero to somebody like Bianca!
