Have put out lots of texts to bring the blog into view. Feedback good and will rely on people power to spread its address from here.
Still all good on the health front, had a Pallative Care visit today. These are interesting people. As a terminal patient under care of Cabrini you get introduced to the Palliative care team. They are there 24/7 to address issues , liaise with doctors and basically manage the best quality of life during the trip and a pain free process and exit. So far I have had 3 or 4 visits. The first was all about assessing surroundings, understanding services and getting a drug pack for emergencies, exciting! Since then it is really just a drop in and chat about how I feel, eating ,pain (i don’t have any) oxygen level in blood, I was 98 today ,100 is normal and over 90 fine. It is an interesting process in terms of making friends and getting comfortable with them and them with the 3 dogs! They also have provided me with a writer so I am having regular sessions writing the story of my life, will go into that another time, the process not the story!
On life in general it is still just terribly exciting, I had a call from a software company based in Holland today who want me to fly to Singapore for some initial meetings about consulting to them in Australia. Amazingly they had done all the homework on me but missed the reason I stopped working. Anyway always looking for an angle I agreed to meet with them as they are going to come to OZ and we will see what it is all about. Will be interesting to see what develops as the phone was pretty quiet when I said the one thing you need to know is I have terminal cancer.
I think I will start a sign off process that gives you a feel for my condition.
