Holiday/New Year

Happy New Year,I hope you all had a lovely one.... It seems a while since I wrote on this, I always forget to read what I last wrote sorry. Since my short stay at the Wesley I have been feeling great, nothing like a visit to the palliative ward to make you know that isn't where you belong just yet!! I came out the day before my birthday so that was my first present, I had a great day, breakfast with the family out first, then the rest of the day lovely friends dropping in. I had some beautiful presents and last minute decision went up to the 100acre bar for a glass of champagne. Christmas day although some what emotional in parts was a great day. My brother flew in from Singapore and met us back up at Hillstone (100acre bar) it was so good to see him and sit down to a lovely lunch with my family and friends, and then to go home to no washing up etc was a good feeling too!
27/12/2011 Arrived up at Cotton Tree for 6 nights,all of which my special friend Bernie helped organise , with Sara Nick David and I,boys came up for two nights, so again having my sister and brother the three of together doesn't happen very often is been so lovely. We have just relaxed everyday and although it's had it's cloudy moments the weather is fantastic it's great not to be hot and sweaty. New Year's Eve we wondered down to 'The Boat Shed' on the waters edge for a cocktail, then we went up to Bernie's unit above us with fantastic views for another pre dinner drink, it's sounding like I drink a lot isn't it!? But I only have a small one honest! It's been along time since I have felt like anything to drink, so if I feel like it now, then I bloody well will have one!
David cooked us one of his great lamb roasts and Karyn came up for the evening and made yet again my favourite sherry trifle for dessert. Jen also came up for the night,so it was just perfect. Apart from the eye problem which I still struggle with how quickly it has deteriorated,and the ear that buzzes if more than one person is talking in a room, all is just great! I have missed a chemo as had no platelets and an infection, so am back at the Wesley tomorrow, although not ideal to finish the holiday off with, I do feel I need to fight this shit, now more than ever as the cancer is spreading and I want it to know I'm onto it!

I have made some little plans to keep my mind occupied , and just keep doing what I am and just enjoying each and everyday. It may have been my last Christmas and that thought did keep popping up throughout this whole period, and of course I want to do it all again for the next 30 years, however thank you to everyone who made all so perfect, I could not have wanted anything more.
I hope all was great for everyone that reads this too........ Keep you posted xxxx

  1. Hi Suzy, so glad to read that you had a lovely christmas with your family and that you managed to go away for a relaxing break. Sounds like you had a great New Year's Eve too and I think you deserve a drink if you feel like it!! All my family left for the UK last night after a busy holiday so now I can relax!! Life back to normal as I am sitting at the Wesley having my monthly infusion! Looks like we missed each other... Hope we can catch up soon, take care Linda x
