03 June 2013 Why No Photography

03rd June 2013
Unfortunately no photography this weekend as my youngest daughter who suffers from an illness called Cushings had a 6hr operation on Friday to remove her pituitary gland and subsequently she hasn’t been very well. So hospital visits and worry has put paid to any thoughts about photography.

Cushings is caused by a tumour attached to the pituitary gland; this causes the body to produce excess Cortisol which can cause many physical and psychological problems.

This was her third operation to deal with the problem and hopefully her last but as the pituitary regulates quite a few things including the production of hormones she will have to be on medication to replace them for the rest of her life. There may also be the requirement for radiotherapy another not so nice thing although at least it is painless whilst being delivered.

Somehow I think the road to recovery may be a bit rocky for quite a while yet!
