Strange but True

Curious that this past week has seen the highest number of views on this page in a long time and I've not actually posted anything.

29 Sept 07 WebMarty says: That's how it goes, but then I have heard rumors that Yahoo manipulate the stats just to encourage bloggers. Not sure its true though.

Call the Fire Service - Too Many Candles

Choices for the next few days are:

Parties, over-indulgence and likely inebriation.
Hide until all the fuss has died down.
Either way I won't be around for a while

End Child Labour Now!

OK so a little misleading with the title.

The weather was so nice today and I had the pleasure of Little Lad assisting me washing my car. The car was long over due and having him help, just made it so much fun. He took it so seriously and did a really good job, up to a certain height LOL.

By the way, for those who are interested, Mum is making some progress and now looking a bit more healthy. She's now off the IV line, so that's a step forward.

Lost and Found

Last night around midnight I thought I had lost something valuable (to me at least). Don't know why it happened but I suddenlt realised I had not seen the item for a couple of months and could clearly picture where I had last seen it.

After around an hour of quietly turning my room upside down, not to mention the attic room and also my car by torch light, I determined I had lost it and settled back to bed. Yet another thing to worry about and add to the list of things keeping me awake.

Needless to say this morning with little effort, I found it.

Isn't it strange how the mind works at times? For no apparent reason something pops into your head and bugs you. It becomes the most important thing yet your rational mind keeps trying to butt in and tell you it's not important, that it can wait. That voice is a little quieter than it should be and somehow the things that play on your mind take on a life of their own...

One Step Forward, Two Back...

Yesterday mum had to be readmitted to hospital.

It appears the "C Dificile" hospital superbug she had a few weeks or so back has returned with a vengance and with it the severe diarrhoea and sickness she had before. Mum has not really been eating for nearly a week and is unable to take on enough fluids. She is very ill.

15 Sept 07 David says: Sorry to hear that. My thoughts are with you.

A Little Bit of Good News

Mum had a meeting with her consultant today to review her recent scan results and progress in general.

The good news is that for the first time since being diagnosed in Sept 06, the tumour in her Liver is slightly reduced. The hospital have lined up some meetings with other specialists, do some more tests and build her up over the next month, then restart the chemo treatments.

Mum is still very frail and the hospital obviously doesn't want us get our hopes up just yet but even so this is the first positive result. Yea! :-)
