I have not been swallowed by a great sea monster, or disappeared into outer space. In fact I am still in the same space that I was when I last posted, except a little more distracted.
The last month has seen so much happening. Firstly the loss of my father-in-law Desmond, struck the family hard. We are all so far away from Ireland and felt so helpless. Then Ivan left for a 3 week overseas business trip and I began the last 2 weeks of my chemotherapy treatment.
As each day progressed, I began the countdown. Calculating that I had taken over 670 tablets in the course of six months and finally getting to the last three, was a momentous moment. Side-effects have been bearable and enjoying an increase in energy and positive outlook has filled every day.
. . . And then . . . my Dad, Brian, collapsed at home. He was rushed into hospital and diagnosed with a minor stroke. The last 5 days have been concerning. Luckily it has been really minor, although the worrying part is that the MRI has shown a serious of previous minor strokes. The good news is that he is home and feeling good.
So . . . soon I will be back typing regularly. Forgive Me.
