David Burge Updates

David Burge updates his journey with leukemia

Quotidian Routines

Dave is OK today. He is still able to write for many hours.  He has finished two projects that he wanted to complete :-).

The only clue that he isn’t so well is he feels a little short of breath, which may be due to low haemoglobin from the chemo. If this is the cause they may give him blood.  Tomorrow we see the consultant and he will give us information about how well the chemo is controlling the leukemia.

The rest of us are fine and carrying on with our daily tasks. I appreciated the sermon on Sunday about having a consistent walk . Rachel has mid year exams. Sam passed the pre-enrollment assessment to do a National Certificate in Business Administration and Computing Level 2 at the Open Polytechnic. Noah went swimming today. He also did 2 paper rounds today instead of one, because yesterday was so wet that he wanted to leave it in the hope that the weather would be better today, which it was. Jonny and I went to the library and did some shopping. Joseph borrowed the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs DVD with some birthday money he was given. We love Judi Barrett‘s books. Joseph said that it wasn’t really the same story as the book, but it had taken the idea from the book and made it into a new story. He wanted to know if he did the same thing would he have to ask the original author, so we had a little discussion about copyright.

  2. Haemoglobin is the red part of your blood that carries oxygen to every cell in your body. If your haemoglobin is low your muscles and other cells won’t receive enough oxygen, and your body signals this by making you feel short of breath. Having low haemoglobin is like not having enough couriers in an oxygen-delivery network. Sometimes this problem is called ‘low iron’.

  3. I loved that movie! We just watched it this week while vacationing at my in-laws… 3 times, to be exact.
