Breast Cancer

PS On Yesterday's Post

strikske  reminded me that I hadn't posted an update on Claire's health.  Her wound is now closed (13 weeks on) ... although still quite scabby.

She picks up her work-laptop this morning, as she is going to start back at 2 mornings this week at home.  I have reminded her to take it easy, but it is so marvellous to know she is now at the next step of her journey.

THANK YOU for all the prayers and positive vibes the 3 "patients" have had ... it is great to write good news.


And finally .... Happy Birthday to my namesake ... 15 today.

May The 12th

Yesterday being the 12th of the month it is "Diary Day", on monthlydiaryday ... I seem to only get this done every other month.

Anyway ... here goes ....

The alarm sounded too loud this morning ... but I was a good girl, crawled out of bed, showered, had breakfast, got lunch ready, read my Bible reading for the morning (1 Kings 1 - 2) and then headed off to work.

The shift was in "Clinical Measurements" and is part of the technical side of ill health.  I spent the morning ina "flow" clinic ... men with prostrate problems who have difficulties passing a smooth stream of wee.  It's all timed and measured ... then sent off to the specialist.

In the afternoon I was calibrating and cleaning "sleep" kits ... the testing equipment that is used to see if someone has sleep apnoea. So all in all a more different day in a hospital than most people would expect.

Then home, and I made a bacon & cheese pasta (enough for 3 days as there's only me) ... and then computer time.

I started off my checking through LJ, and catching up with comments etc, then updated the great news about my mum's breast cancer improvement, and my dad's skin cancer surgery.  Then I got some final icons made for the season20in20 latest round (I did a Blakes 7 set), and then wrote to my brother, and also emailed my dad's doc to check on his prescription.  My dad, sadly, has Alzheimer's and so I try to keep tabs on what's happening with him.

And so to bed.

A normal day - but actually got quite a bit done.
