Hello rarsie, along with everyone dropping in to chat.
For me, not a day goes by that I do not think about Pieter, it still seems like a dream and that it was yesterday, that we were still on the journey of cancer.
Since Pieter passed away in June 2012, I moved to Brisbane for a short time for work, then later moved back to Kingaroy. By February 2013 I had 5 jobs which was placing a strain on the body. I am one down to 2 jobs (one is a casual position). I am an Assistant in Nursing at one of the local age care facilities, working in both low and high care areas.
I am looking at trying to study palliative care this year and perhaps nursing as well (we will see).
At the moment I live in Kingaroy with a wonderful family.
The house is starting to be completed, as we only got to lock up stage while Pieter was around. I am so very glad that Pieter had the opportunity to live in his house on the block before his passing.
I think of you all regularly and wonder how you are all coping over time.
Hope you all had a nice Christmas (thought it is a difficult time of year), and wishing you all the best for 2014.
To all those going through the journey with cancer, all the best.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
