The Ability to Start Over…
So ~ we have made it to Queensland. We are in Bundaberg, looking after a house while its owners travel Australia. We arrived in July 2011 ~ its now June 2012. The weather has helped me regain strength, energy and weight in abundance. I’ve gained over 15kg and now weigh 56kg. *big grin* I’m no longer using a walking stick or on daily painkillers, other than the odd run on Panadol Osteo to break a building ache and a stronger pill for the occasional break-thru pain relief when I’ve soldiered on for way too long.
Yes, we are still awaiting the all-clear from both Radiation Oncology and ENT Oncology, but the next stage is following up with something in the pancreas at the duodenum – so that is our new medical focus for him. As he gets stronger, he bemoans the fact he has no earning capacity – but his creative streak has returned, his passion for photography and a desire to create with wood is strong. I hope to see him do what inspires him for the time being – if it becomes something that can generate income, great. Having him here is the important thing.
Obviously a lot has happened. A lot has changed. And there is a lot of ‘stuff’
still to come medically for both Hubby and I – all bound to effect the budget
and income potential to secure our dreams. Regardless, we will preserver
