Diary Update

It's Sunday. Tracey's birthday - which we will celebrate very quietly. She goes in for surgery on Wednesday to get rid of those galloping gallstones... and the way to do that is to remove the entire gall bladder. We will be glad when that is over and recovery is in train. My daughters Alice and Sylvia will arrive tomorrow so that the household remains in order while Tracey is recovering.

Inevitably this day is tinged with great sadness, as it also happens to be the second anniversary of the death of my youngest sister, Kay, who passed away after a Herculean effort on her part and that of her husband John,  to combat her breast cancer. She was a beautiful person and is sadly missed every single day of our lives, and always will be.

It seems somehow unsuitable to talk about myself today. I'll just report that I slept well and feel encouraged as the week goes on that the chemotherapy/Avastin combination seems to be beneficial.  The post-chemo weariness remains but that is to be expected.

  1. I feel that 'sadness' ... I can't help but reflect upon nursing my mother for 9 months ... it was so hard to let go ...


Some iPads simply refuse to post responses. I have no idea why, but be aware of this.
