Shorty still hear and still feeling pretty good,
Thought I would do a catch up.
Since the clock started ticking a lot has happened. First the decision to do chemo, easy one as if it was too hard I would stop and if it helped I would keep doing it. Result is it has helped slow up the lung coughing etc and I think gave me a few months back. Good plan. Process is one hospital trip and bags of chemo mthly and chemo pills 14 days on 7 off. Tiredness is manageable and the odd arvo sleep very enjoyable.
I then had to sort family stuff, cars, bank accounts, wills etc etc. All done and dusted and that makes me feel very good. Then exit old life i.e. retire. I went out with a bang and the celebrations and general over the top stuff done by very many people was unbelievable. Also very exciting for Eliz and Mitch.
Then I was manic around time and needing to have a plan. As a result March was the do stuff month. I went to lots of states and cities with 2 mates and we had a ball gambling at most of the countries casinos wining and dining and having a lot of very interesting discussions. That trip ended with a highlight dinner at Nobu with wires and Mitch. That done we then had a great family trip down to Jills B&B in Phillip Island. Lots of family fun, some Grange and a relaxed togetherness. Then a fantastic trip to Lizard Island with just Eliz and Mitch. Lots of fun, sun, exotic location, helicopters, big boats and fish, turtles afrgottos etc etc. That pretty much blew the month though on the way I picked up a small consulting role under my terms to keep me commercially astute while I am still interested. Early April has been a bit about the consulting, catching uup with lots of people over coffees, dinner and drop overs and then of course easter. Just got back today but we spent easter at Point Lonsdale and said farewell to the Lonnie house. Great time with the Roberts and Men plus kids. Crays/ prawns and general excess. Also great to have the dogs down the beach and watch miss maybe for the last time race through the sand dunes.
So might leave it there, not sure how I get this site out but I am counting on you to please pass it on to all and sundry. Comments welcome
