We had a wonderful Christmas day that followed a fun event- filled month. Our day was filled and we were exhausted by the end of the day, but full physically and emotionally. We started our day with the kids and granddaughter coming over for breakfast. I got to play with Phoenix in "her room", as she calls the guest bedroom, (well, she is correct in saying it's her room because it has her toys and books and pictures and the quilt on the bed that she learned to say the word "star" on, one of her first words, because it has a lot of stars on it), and her little rocking chair. It was so good to get to spend time with her. Then we went to our oldest son's house for afternoon dinner and presents. His girlfriend's family was also there as well as our other two kids and Phoenix. That was such a fun day. We were packed in that house but that's what made it even more fun, I think. From there, we went to my sister's house for evening dinner. We got to take Phoenix with us there because it's been a long time since my sister has gotten to see her. We got to play tea party with her tea party set she got for Christmas. By the end of the night we were all tired and ready to go home and rest. But it was such a goooood day.
Glenn continues to do well. His main complaint right now is the phantom itching he has every night. It starts in one place for a while then moves to other locations, and of course is very aggravating. It doesn't seem to happen during the day. We aren't sure what it is from because it could be from the kidney failure, or it could be from the blood disease he has. We go to G'ville in two weeks. Maybe they will have a clue as to what is causing it and what can be done for it. But other than that, he feels pretty good. We are still watching his platelet count. We'll get the results of the latest level in a day or two.
Hope you all had a fun and happy Christmas and New Year.
