Oops - it's been 2 weeks..

Two weeks already since my last post here. That's been 2 weeks free of ANY medical stuff. It's been heaven. But I'm back now to the regimen of consultations, tests, chemo etc

Well - I did go to Port Douglas with my Dad for a week's R&R. And that's exactly what it was. Dad and I had adjoining serviced apartments and really took advantage of the warm temperature (26'-28' every day), sometimes a little cloud cover in the mornings, but the rest of the days were open blue sky and sunshine, without wind. Perfect for long walks along 4 mile beach, reading, lounging by the pool - in the sun for Dad and under the shade of the palms for me - naps at any time of day, lunches or dinners at wonderful restaurants. It was very relaxing.

Dad loves his mud crabs!

Dad went on a fishing trip and caught lots of fish and had a great time. We went to the Daintree and took a boat ride on the river to view crocs, tree snakes and beautiful birds. Otherwise, we just hung around the resort.

Coming back to freezing Wollongong was a bit of a shock. Max 12' yesterday!!!!!! Swimsuit and sarongs and shorts and thongs, T shirts and summer dresses are now back in storage and the scarves and gloves and coats and boots are out again.

Yesterday I went to my Chinese doctor. He was very pleased with my condition and said that my chi is improving. His expression was "I can see a bubble"

Today I'm having lunch with my friend Karen to celebrate her birthday and tonight going with friends to an Australian Chamber Orchestra concert.

And next week - blood test, consultation with the oncologist and then my next dose of chemo.

Will report then

Thursday 14 July @ 10am
