And out peeps the ray of...

Today we found out it is a virus attacking Justin's brain - it causes stroke like symptoms and can cause brain damage, but at least we have a (kind of) diagnosis. In truth, the surgeons don't really know what they are dealing with, but that's what happens with neuroscience...we don't know the brain entirely, yet. The prognosis depends on how Justin's immune system fights the virus - some patients die at the start (!!), other recover 100% and others don't. So time will tell.

It's just a day at a time, peeps - life is literally just a day at a time. But at least a ray of hope has come into our lives...I couldn't help but admire the moon last night, peeping out from the clouds. As when the moon shone in it's glory, it lit out the environment so can't help but be hopeful when you see that beauty...

I am taking tonight off then I'll be back at work tomorrow. Now is the time to get some normality back into our lives...little by little.
