Hi Sara, I think I might be able to squeak it in, but only if I can get the front of Martin's jumper done in the next few days. If that's done by say Thursday, I'll be in with a sporting chance and I'll order the wool for next week.

His dad is ok, thanks for asking, although his platelet count has been a bit low so he had to miss his chemo last week. He thought that was marvelous because he said his brain went back to normal and he went out for a long drive on a nice sunny day.

Apparently, the drugs left him with such a mind fog he had stopped himself from driving in case his reactions were too slow.

That cheered him up no end, but of course he can't keep missing weeks of chemo otherwise the myeloma will start growing again. So while it seemed good to him he forgot it could come with a sting in the tail.
