Update on Health and so much to be thankful for.

Thought I would just update my blog for those who read it.

The steroids I had recently seemed to have worked and my vision came back in my right eye, then a few days ago it went again. I still have my left so I am still smiling.

I saw my MS nurse last week and mentioned I have pain in my right hip, I am going to have an MRI scan on it to check no damage has been caused by the steroids I have taken. It is painful but I am at peace with whatever it may be, God enables me to have this peace and I am so thankful.
I will update you when I know more.

My daily injections are going well and I am not bruising as much as I used to and when I look back to when I started capaxone it certainly has reduced my amount of relapses, so yet another thing to be thankful to God about.

I am thankful my husband is my full time carer, and is the best husband in the world (yes I am biased lol).

I am thankful for my son being understanding why his mummy is in bed so early.

I am thankful for my bloggy friends who are so encouraging.

Most of all I am thankful for the Lord Jesus Christ who paid the price for my sins.

Sometimes we have to step back and see all the blessings we have daily.

Another Great Hymn-Man of sorrows what a name.

This is one of my husbands favourite hymns and we had this at our wedding,The words are just wonderful and full of hope and joy to the Christian.

Man of Sorrows! what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King
,All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

A snippet of Gods creation.

I by no means class myself as a gardener but I do enjoy pottering around in the garden. I planted a few pots a couple of weeks ago to give the garden a splash of colour.

When I look at the flowers planted I am in awe of the beauty in the shapes and colours and wanted to share a few pictures with you.

Update on things in general.

Health wise I think I am improving but I have to take things slowly or I will set myself backwards rarther than going forwards,

Sensation in coming back in arms and legs and is quite painful but thats a positive thing , means feeling is returning. My face and neck are numb but it doesnt hinder me in anyway, My eyesight is much inproved (yeh!).... mentally I feel like fighting again aslong long as I fight before afternoon comes lol as enery levels have gone by then.
Most importantly I have been walking closer my Mighty God and going to Him in prayer and I cannot stop thanking Him for His goodness, AND his love.

We have a mighty God that can do all things and never leaves us or forsakes us , what a friend we have.

Weight wise it came to a standstill but im still 3 stone 1 loss so thats a plus , trying to get remotivated and focused,.

I wanted to share one of my favourite Hymns with you.

There is a hymn that has a very special place in my heart. I sang it the first Sunday I went to church after I was converted and we had it on our wedding day.

The words simply say it all that is needed.

My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ Name.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.


His oath, His cov'nant, and His blood,
Support me in the 'whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.


When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Clothed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

I have had my three day course of IV steroids tues/wed/thurs last week. It took four times to canulate me I am sure my veins hide when a needle comes out.
I have come down off the steroid high and just waiting to see if there is any effect, no sensation on right side has returned yet but its still early days.

I came down with a heavy cold after course of steroids was taken which has not helped at all. Its a waiting game now and I will keep you updated when things happen.

Still feel lousey but still smiling and God being on my side its a win win situation.
