Yay! Billy and Amy are all packed. Dean is not on any medication at the moment. He starts taking them again next Friday. Apart from sore joints he is feeling pretty good. Dean and I are heading out to Lorne, my sister Kerrys property at Blackall on Monday after the kids fly off on their trip. He is feeling well so we thought we may as well make the most of it. We can only be there for a couple of days before we head back for the next blood test but it is better than nothing. When Dean was in the Townsville General Hospital, the lady in the bed beside him had a brain biopsy the day after Dean did. Since then the pair of them talk frequently. Her news is almost identical to Deans and she is only a couple of years younger. She lives in Proserpine. She met with the Oncologist that Dean is under a couple of days ago and she starts chemo through Mackay Base next week. They will be comparing notes I am sure. The only support group for Brain Tumours is in Brisbane so they will be able to support each other.
All is quiet here as the Bill is on tv. Dean has been addicted for many many years.
