Solving the Puzzle

Solving the Puzzle in Boston

Start of 2016

There are a few things happening this year and some changes.

One of the changes for this year is that Vanessa and I are moving back to Nelson from Wellington. This is due to the fact that the weather and climate up here in Wellington seems to be affecting my health. I am hoping the weather is playing a part in my increased trips to hospital with chest infections and once back in Nelson’s climate the chest infections will not be as frequent again. There is no guarantee this will be the case, but it is a high possibility. I am still staying under my lung specialist here in Wellington which is great and will be attending my 3 – 6 monthly visits in Wellington. I have started the pulmonary rehab again as this was recommended by my lung specialist and the physio when I was in hospital couple of weeks ago.

The last two and a half years living in Wellington have been great. We have made some great friends and enjoyed the big city life. I have been fortunate enough to able to keep my job with Weta Digital when I return to Nelson, which is fantastic for me. I will be working remotely and travel up to Wellington once every month or two.

We are looking at travelling back to America again this year, as it is coming up on two years since we were last there. The dates for the Medical Conference at Camp Sunshine have been confirmed for the 14th to the 18th of September 2016. We will be getting in touch with the Boston Children’s Hospital and the National Institute of Health in Washington DC about organising times to visit them around the camp. As the money fund raised 4 years ago has mainly been spent on travel, accommodation and medical expenses for myself and one support person, there is enough left for this year’s trip to America.
