Living With Mesothelioma -My Diary- The Coldest Easter Sunday Ever

easter chick

Well Easter Sunday was a quiet affair for us as the family arent coming until today. ….

It was slightly a warmer feel as the wind wasn’t so strong and so bitter but it has gone on record that it was the coldest Easter Sunday ever.

After the coldest Easter Sunday on record, you’d hope for a brief respite from the Arctic weather.

But it seems spring is shaping up to be colder than winter was, with no sign of temperatures warming up.

The bank holiday weekend was yesterday confirmed as the coldest Easter since records began in 1960, with temperatures dipping well below freezing.

Take a look at the pictures in the Mail –this is madness

So many people who stayed home although Whitstable was blocked with traffic we couldnt get in or out on Saturday. Here we go our town isnt ours from now on its for the visitors.

We have become so popular.

Ray went into the garden and then we went on a longer walk in the afternoon around our park he is getting stronger bit by bit and he can drive at the end of this week. Thats good because then we can go and park somewhere and see a different view than our 4 walls and the garden. Might even get to Tankerton slopes.

Hello Mavis
I haven’t commented on your blog for ages, I’m sorry I do pop in to see how you are though.
I wanted to say I understand just how you feel about your lovely Ray.
My partner had a heart attack last August. It’s just so scary isn’t it! Talk about living on a knife edge. I know just what you’re going through Mavis.
On that cardiac ward watching that monitor is enough to give US a heart attack too isn’t it ?!!

My partner had a stent fitted. Best thing ever. I know you will worry but it takes just about 30 minutes and then it’s done with. Ray won’t feel a thing,and he will feel like his old self again and you will be able to relax just imagine that!!!!

What I will say though Mavis, if you don’t hear anything really soon, chase them because sometimes we do slip through the net, my partner did 

I wish you well with your scan. I think of you both often.

I’ve just got back from a late night dog walk. It’s freezing here in Essex..but the sun was warm today and I was awake early listening to the birds singing. I have daffodils and snowdrops in the garden and loads of buds on my magnolia tree…:)

I meant to say’s good to be crafty haha. I cook all Steves ‘fried’ food in benecol Ha. …
Make sure Ray has his actimel drinks too Mavis and take care of You too.

Love Sally xxxx

That really gives me loads of hope for Ray xxxx

This week is Global Asbestos Awreness Week with ADAO

Asbestos: One Word. One World. One Week.

Thanks to the U.S. Senate, ADAO now has Senate Resolution 66 designating April 1 -7, 2013 as “Asbestos Awareness Week.”   Global Asbestos Awareness Week (GAAW) begins on Monday with ADAO’s exclusive online candlelight vigil to honor for those fighting preventable asbestos-caused diseases and remember those we have lost. Our GAAW campaign will include “7 Facts for 7 Days” and a different asbestos subject each day.

Asbestos is a known carcinogen and there is no safe level of exposure.  The World Health Organization reported:

  • “About 125 million people in the world are exposed to asbestos at the workplace.
  • According to WHO estimates, more than 107,000 people die each year from asbestos-related lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis resulting from occupational exposure.”

The USA must stop importing asbestos and pass legislation to ban asbestos.  We all know – asbestos kills. Tweet, post, and share #BanAsbestosNow!

British Lung foundations campaigne for take five stay alive  is the theme as the second wave of Mesothelioma is coming from DIY

I tell you what the 5 are in my BLF Video that is now being used as a traing Video by Mesothelioma UK
