    Had the neurosurgeon''s report and the aneurysm is inoperable. Another specialist to see every six months. The next lymphodema garment is ready to it but they don't have an appointment until November. Life goes on. Sometimes I get disheartened but really what is the point. Better to just go on with the usual routine and enjoy each day as it comes.

    Two sad news items, my man friend from 2016 who has become a great friend died aged 70 a couple of weeks ago. His funeral was last Friday. On Friday afternoon my friend of the last 60 years, my first girlfriend after my arrival in Australia, died of a brain aneurysm. She and I went through school together and have always maintained our friendship. Friends like Jean are irreplaceable. I am devastated at losing two good friends so close together.

    That is so sad for you. It must be so hard especially when you are already been going through a difficult time. I am so sorry.x

    We all know life just has to go on. I have a routine I have accepted as my normal and that is the framework of my daily life. I guess at my age death in my friendship group is inevitable. But close friends are irreplaceable and so there is a loss that is harder to come to terms with.

    I'm so sorry Sue, that's very hard to accept and deal with.
