I am unable to go to Bunbury tomorrow to say goodbye to one of my school buddies who passed away at the weekend from cancer. Carol put up one of the most strongest fights i have seen , just to stay with her family. i am so glad i got to spend some time with her a few weeks ago, where we could chat, laugh and go over old times. my thoughts will be with her family and friends tomorrow. i know she is at peace now and those angels will welcome her with open arms. so long Carol. you will be missed. Linda

Hi Jill thank you. i am doing well. i got to speak to Carol's mum and my sister and mother went to the funeral. they said it was huge, about 300 people. how are you going? i know things are really hard at the moment but please remember to take some time for yourself as you have a long road to travel. i head back to Perth on Jan 6 for my appointment with Dr Taylor. i have a heap of questions to ask and i hope she can answer them. i wonder if i need all my info for my daughter just incase down the track she might need it. little things keep popping up in my mind all the time. anyway please take care and dont forget the little poem i sent you. HOLD ON. cheers Linda

Hi Linda, So glad to hear that you are doing well. There are obviously a lot of people who feel the same way as you about Carol being a special lady, that is really lovely. I hope that you get the answers to your questions when you see Dr Taylor in January. The questions seem to be endless, just when you think you can't think of anymore, another one will pop into your head! For your own peace of mind, it seems sensible to hold on to all the info, should it be an issue for your daughter down the track. Let's hope not. As for me, I am just trying to take it one day at a time, the last few days Greg has been doing quite well, his confusion seems to be much much less and physically he has been fine. This morning however, he has woken with a slight headache, I have given him some water for the moment and he is now sleeping. He has some medications to take but needs to eat first, so will let him sleep a bit longer and then see if I can get him to have brekky so that he can have his meds. The plan for today was that we were going to drop the boys for a playdate with friends, I would take Greg to my Dad's work and then Dad would take Greg to Greg's work xmas function in Freo and I was going to do xmas shopping. Will have to wait and see if that is how it ends up. I am accepting help whenever it is offerred and am asking for it when it isn't offerred! I am trying to catch up on sleep where I have the opportunity. It is all such a major change to what I am used to, and it is hard to accept so much help, but I know I have to, or we just won't manage. Thanks for your thoughts, I am HOLDING ON! Jill.
