|The view from our apartment!|
We were lucky to also have friends staying in the village so we had lots of fun and Ryan loved spending time with everyone. It wasn't always blue skies and sunshine, there was plenty of snowy days so all in all the conditions were great.
Ryan's first cannula experience was 'ok'. There were lots of tears when it was being inserted, it didnt work well enough to enable a venesection (blood draw) to be done but once it was in the tears stopped and Ryan coped well for the 4 hours that the infusion ran for. Next time (the 17th March) he will need the cannula inserted into a larger vein in his arm so that blood can be taken to reduce his iron overload. He is very apprehensive about this, understandably. His consultants have decided that they will coincide the venesection with bone marrow aspirates and trephines so that he only has one trip into hospital so he is even less keen about this but will hopefully cope as well as he usually does.
