Going on alone

Just had my yearly review with the melanoma specialist. As usual I was told what was in the PET scan report and mostly it was good news. The exception was the thyroid condition which basically is deteriorating faster than expected. I am having the operation in three weeks time so will know after that if it is cancerous or not. The outcome could be more treatment, radiation etc. Hopefully I can get through that as I have in the past three years with the other operations. Sometimes wonder if it does make you stronger or just more tired.
((((Hugs))))

Just back from my cruise to New Zealand. I had a great time. The ship's Captain got us into all six ports despite some rough weather. My thyroid operation is scheduled for next Monday. Fingers crossed there will not be too many complications with the recovery.

I did have the operation to remove half my thyroid last Monday. I came home Tuesday morning and self isolated. I was able to drive to a small local supermarket and restock some of my supplies yesterday but of course not toilet paper. What a farce! But life goes on and I will retrieve the wartime spirit of my ancestors and "soldier on" as I am sure you are all doing. This virus is just a glitch in the system and hopefully teaches us to be more self-reliant. Went back to fritters for breakfast to save on bread. Plenty of the staples in my cupboards so if I had a couple of hens life would be perfect. Hope we all come through this stronger than ever.

Isolation is a bugbear for everyone, I am no exception. We were allowed two adult visitors plus children on Mother's Day so my daughter Shirley split the family, her husband and son to Nanna four hours drive away, her and Naomi to me. It was lovely to have them here. I am still only going shopping once a week. No sense in taking chances. I am running out of things to do so looking forward to an easing of restrictions. Autumn!m is colder now so signs of winter ahead. I miss the long warm days. I will survive this, we all will. Just hope it doesn't go on much longer.

Thanks Cat. I am hoping all four of them can come down for my birthday in June. Restrictions are going to be gradually eased but when we will be back to coffee with friends in a shopping centre is yet to be stated. But we are all in this together as we keep being told so I hope the
Rich and Famous are suffering the way we are. Lol.
