Monday Nov. 2nd. The ultrasound took place last Friday morning and we should have the results – or at least the consultant will have the results tomorrow. When we get them is another matter, Although having said that, he has been pretty good in keeping us informed when he has been here. He is not resident here. But this scan should tell us where the ‘infection ‘is and how widespread it is. At this stage the results seem to indicate that it is in one area and not widespread, but one never can tell with this. I attended the RFDS Meeting last night and drew back from any further
major involvement for the time being. Some things I will continue to do because they are done by telephone and do not require me to be somewhere. I have put my name down for the Men’s Christmas Dinner as has Annabell for the Women’s Christmas Dinner not knowing if either of us will be there at this stage. Everything is very uncertain until we know what is to happen.
Annabell is still very unwell and will require major surgery but the ultrasounds and the blood tests have been quite encouraging, so now we just wait for a bit. Yes we do have the results but we need time to discuss them with the boys. At this stage we don’t know if it will be at the Royal Adelaide or the Flinders Medical Center – this will determine where I will stay when I am down there with her. I understand that the Flinders have a couple of houses that can be rented for a short period so if it is the Flinders I will organise that. If it if the Royal Adelaide I will probably stay at the Princes Lodge, which is where I will be staying this weekend – maybe!!
I will need to get back on to WordPress again and see if they can fix my problem. I can read all your posts – no problem there – if you comment on my post, I can reply – no problem there either. Howeffer, if I try and make a comment on your posts – ah, that does present a problem in that, I can’t. So it’s not that I have not been reading your posts it’s just that I can’t comment on them. When I try to do so, it tells me that my login to WordPress.com has expired and the comment is terminated. I haven’t been ignoring people, I just can’t get in touch with you. On the other hand –
perhaps there is nothing wrong with WordPress.com and you are all trying to tell me something :o)
As an aside, I liked the Spinach and Cheese Ravioli recipe and have downloaded and printed it ( see, I do read them) . Depending what happens and where I go, I will take this with me and perhaps I will be able to use it as a quick meal when I am on my own. Since Annabell cannot have tomato products, I can make it here but it would last me for a few days – and – I suppose that’s good. I love pasta but hate lasagna – strange…
I have booked the hotel in Adelaide for the Conference but I also indicated that I could cancel at a moments notice and that seemed to be fine after I explained why this might be happen. I made a comment on a post this morning – Tippy Tales, – which was good. Perhaps the problem is rectifying itself.
Benji is well. Like the rest of us he is getting older although his enthusiasm for early morning walks has not diminished, he is not so great on mid-
afternoon walks and a couple of times an night I have gone out on my own. We stopped going round the back on the Wetlands to feed the geese and ducks mainly because the path has been upgraded with gravel and he has soft paws and the gravel hurts, so we stick to the main paved paths. Some may say I spoil him – not so – I just look after him a lot.

Your version of the spinach/cheese ravioli lasagna looks yummy. It is a great dish that makes up easily, taste great and freezes well. I hope it comes in handy when you’re on your own. I continue to send best healing energy to Annabell and hope all goes well once the diagnosis and treatment is solidified. 🥰
I have all the ingredients and will make it soon – I need to give it a try out first before taking it to Adelaide. I think it will be good…
Annabelle, you, and Benji remain in my prayers for a swift, healthy resolution to the health issues.
I fully understand Benji’s soft paws issues as well – Ducky has been dealing with an infection of some sort on one particular paw pad on her front left foot. We’ve been treating it for nearly 2 weeks, but it’s still quite itchy for her. Poor girl is having to wear the dreaded cone to keep her from making things worse. I nearly cry every time I have to put it back on her.
Thank you. Here in the outlying areas of town we don’t have a lot of pavements (Sidewalks) so I walked him on the road – towards the on-coming traffic. It was a struggle to get him on to the gravel when a vehicle approached. However, we now have pavements and life is so much easier. Benji is not a great fan of the cone either.
