Slow Weekend

Dawn is experiencing another bout with the cluster headaches. This is her second or third year to suffer with them. These headaches only last a few minutes each episode but she may have twenty a day. The after effect is exhaustion.

It seems they come on in early spring and last four to six weeks. They go into remission and will return again in the late fall. She has text book symptoms and her doctor says there isn’t anything they can do for her. The cause has not yet been discovered.

It is really difficult to watch her suffer with the terrible pain these headaches cause. Yesterday afternoon she was in tears and I felt helpless. She is in her third week so we are hoping they will soon return to remission.

This weekend I packed up a few more boxes for storage and did some odd and in things around the house. Other than that, we didn’t do much at all.
