Thursay; 1st Day of Spring! The boy and I had a great walk this morning and, yes, he is still in the stroller. I think 3 miles is a bit too much for him these days. Yesterday, Annabell went for the CT Scan and the results were faxed to Flinders. Today around 11:30am, Flinders telephoned and gave us the results. The CT Scan has cleared up a few things and the results are quite clear. The cancer has grown slightly but enough to upgrade a stage. However, they believe this is not too serious and they would start her on medication that will help with this. We arranged for the medication script to be sent directly to the pharmacy and afer lunch we went down to the shopping centre to collect the medication. Well, there you are – this medication is not available here and after telephoning varions places, the medication will come from inter-state and be here Saturday afternoon. The joys of living in a small countgry area! Apart from all that, she is responding well. She gets tired but otherwise she is not too bad. Flinders did mention that we would be down for day surgery end of October or early November
Tails/Ranch bought an Ink Tank Printer and I am just wondeing how it is going. I have been printing a lot with mine recently – much colour – and the ink levels don’t seem to be moving. Not that I am complaining but it seems that although I have printed much, the ink levels have barely moved. Annabell did mention that at this stage I would be looking at a second set of cartridges for the ink jet. The only other person I know who has a “Tank” printer and I would be interested in knowing how that one is going. I just have this frightful feeling that one day I will look at the high level of ink, set a task and the levels just vanish to nothing and I have no ink . And yes, Paranoia is part of my make-up….
Annabell has been unwell the last day or so. Nothing too serious but she has been very tired. We suspect that it is a question of her body getting used to the new medication she has been given. I worry about her. – well, I have to – that’s my job.. Five days into Spring and the weather has been fine. Light and lovely sunrises in the early morning and sunny as the day progresses. At times it has been warm, not hot, just warm. The forecast for the week in Adelaide is rain, rain and even more rain . In the forecast Adelaide gets a forecast a week in advance, whereas we only get the next day. Benji has been making the most of the weather outside spread out on his chair or on the “bench”I made for him. It is a very low bench with a full bench cover at the back and a second one at the front. He sometimes, depending where the sun is, jumps on that and spreads out, catching the rays :o)
Last week we had something medical almost every day, which became quite tiring. This week we only have one medical appointment – she has to see her doctor on Thursday morning and the rest of the week is free. Well, it is only Tuesday and there are three more days to go and anything could happen. ( And generally does!) I was asked to do a fundraiser for the RFDS on Saturday morning and I said I would provided Annabell was ok. I will have help from son John and Rosemary so it
will work out ok provided the weather is good, Fortunately the trees in this area are few and far between. This generrally means that I can walk along the road without too much fear of being attacked. In streets down from here where there are many trees, it can be a dangerous time of the year – Magpie Mating Season and they attack anyone or anything (even cars and pushbikes) that for them represents a danger to their family. Once the young have grown up for a few months it all tapers off and walking is safe again.
