Most of what you’ll read here is life and fun, with episodes from my past, amusing and serious. But I have an unwelcome stranger lodged in my brain, as you’ll find if you explore my stories. Our destinies are interlocked, but its deadly presence reminds me every minute that each day of life is a miracle. This is my space to reflect on life, and an interactive area where we can share our experiences freely. Without you, this blog has no reason for existence. Carpe Diem!

Avastin infusion postponed

Dear Denis, visit you often via your blog. Think about you. Admire your attitude. I've told you before but am going to tell you again- you enriched my life. Much love & great adoration to you. Bet it's colder in Armidale than it is in Murwillbah! I remember an earth tremor very early one morning in Armidale back in about 1991. It was a stark remimder of our insigificance in the presence of Mother Nature. Regards, Liz (dark curly hair)ReplyDelete
Dear Denis, just checked my message and saw that I left the "um" out of Murwillumbah! Too much red wine on a Saturday night or, hopefully, it was because of "thick" fingers on a new mobile phone. Who am I trying to kid!!! Pouring rain here in Mur-bah today and I believe the sun is shining in Armidale. Hope it's a good day for you. LizReplyDelete
Ah, having been a student of mine, your old fear of my terrible wrath at spelling errors has kicked in [as it should. :)] I'm rather more mellow about such things these days, especially given the atrocities to the English language committed minute by minute on social media.Delete
Thanks for your kind thoughts. As you see, we sit this week on the brink. I admit to being dangerously calm about it all, which always makes me wonder whether I have faced reality at all, or faced it completely. Tuesday's result may expose that truth. There's no in-between.
Dear Denis, prayers that it's a good result and you can have the Avastin. May your courage prevail. LizDelete
Thinking of you today, Denis ... not that we don't think of you every day. I agree with 'anonymous' above; the philosophy that shows through all your extreme difficulties is an enriching and thought-provoking experience. Hope it goes well with the tests today.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Bob. We expect word from Oncology no earlier than late afternoon. It could even be tomorrow morning, either way.Delete
Perched on the precipice eh Denis. An image that demands much thought, several stomped on the second they pop up, others stroked lovingly in the hope they will be the dominant reality. Sighs. Oh to be in such control.ReplyDelete
I join the pilgrimage of the prayerful and all who simply come to invoke their best and kindest thoughts upon you. Peace tonight.
You're calm, Denis, because my stomach is in enough knots for both of us.ReplyDelete
I know this calm you talk about. I had it when Carl had his heart attack and then when I had to call the ambulance in the middle of the night. On both occasions, I went very calm and rational, not upset at all. On each occasion I thought, this promised day has arrived. Well, it didn't, and so it remains in the future still, but one day it will come and I hope I switch gears and can face the inevitable with equanimity and curious anticipation. I believe nature has equipped us all to meet such moments if we allow her voice to be heard.
