Home again! We arrived in Melbourne early yesterday morning after a very calm and smooth car ferry crossing from Devonport, Tasmania to Melbourne. 6.30am off loaded and on our way home north ... took just on an hour - we were so lucky to just miss the peak hour morning traffic! Yesterday was a day for on and off sleeping because on the ship we had ocean recliners and nodded off and on with disturbed sleep.
Today we picked up our mail from post office, called into see our wonderful neighbours and good friends who in turn minded Charlie (our siamese cat). Charlie was just so glad to see us yesterday that he wouldn't leave our sight - by last night he was yawning big time!! He also was very very vocal telling us all about his time without us!! He is now curled up on my lap fast asleep enjoying the blast from the heater.
Back to reality - chemotherapy tomorrow. I have had a break of 6 weeks thanks to our wonderful and restful retreat in Tasmania. Last week walking along the beach with Keith I really felt as though nothing was wrong with me - in other words NO MESOTHELIOMA lol!!! By Saturday my tummy/abdomon had started to swell up with fluid again and tonight it is quite tight so a reminder that hey I do have this bloody cancer!
Last Tuesday my youngest daughter Debbie who lives in Queensland gave birth to a beautiful and healthy little girl. They were discharged yesterday and are doing well at home. A name is pending!!
Beautiful and brave warriors are dying every day thanks to asbestos and senseless greed. <3
My thoughts and heart is with the families left behind to pick up the pieces. These beautiful and brave warriors should still be with their families and friends. It is so so wrong!
