By 1978 Bill had recovered his health and was learning to live with Sarcoidosis of the brain membrane. He has to take prednisone for the rest of his life. He worked around the house most weekends. He built a brick BBQ, a patio and pergola and a timber shed.
|He also built the girls a double bunk.|
Our neighbours, a few houses down the street had two children a similar age, Adam and Joanne. They were good playmates and their mum often looked after our girls, especially when Bill was in hospital.
