Today I seem to have no energy, I took my time getting up this morning and probably would have stayed longer except Charlie (my siamese cat) decided he wanted his breakfast so would jump over me in bed onto the floor then repeat this exercise until finally I got up and he got fed!
My oncology appointment is now scheduled for this coming Friday 5 July at 5pm in Melbourne - results of my recent scans and also after the multi disciplinary medical team discussion about my case the previous day.
An associate professor from America contacted me to do an email interview on mesothelioma and women. He was particularly interested in the link with my father's exposure and ultimate death of pleural mesothelioma in 1985.
The School of Human Movement Studies, University of Qld also contacted me for more paperwork/scan details as they are doing a Nutritional status, dietary intake, body composition and quality of life of patients with an asbestos related disease research study.
If anyone living with mesothelioma/asbestosis in Australia would like to participate in this study, please contact:

Below is an extract from a letter back to me in regards 'recruiting' volunteers living with mesothelioma/asbestosis in Australia and who would like to participate.
