PET SCAN & quick trip interstate!

A quick 4 day visit to Queensland catching up with my beautiful daughter Debbie and little grandkids Lux and Evie with a visit to Dreamworld where I met up with Gail (who lost her brave warrior husband Steve recently to mesothelioma) and Peter (Gail's brother) for a drink and chat.   It was so nice to spend that time with Gail and Peter and very special memories of Steve in July 2013 when I was in Queensland last visit.

Dreamworld the kids just loved and because it was off season NO REAL TOURISTS there!   It was great to be able to walk around with Deb and the kids, the little ones eyes would light up when they saw each new ride/activity.


Yesterday, Tuesday a visit to the hospital in Melbourne for blood tests, oncologist visit and supposedly chemotherapy.   Bloods were still low, a PET scan ordered for tomorrow (Thursday) and chemotherapy postponed until results of scan next week.    Scan will be at 1.30pm tomorrow with fasting from 7am.   I have mixed feelings about this scan - hopefully STABLE will be the main word my oncologist says when reading the results next Wednesday to me!

Keith had eye surgery today - cataract removal and also his lens lasered and a plastic one inserted into the eye.  He is resting comfortably and has taken pain meds so hopefully will sleep soundly tonight.

We lost another brave Aussie meso warrior, Gordon.   My heart goes out to Dizzy and family.   May Gordon be at peace and free from pain.
