Living With mesothelioma -MY Diary- Oncologists appointment has been made –and its Halloween


I had an appointment letter from my Oncologist for Thursday 5th Dec so I have now to wait for a scan appointment.  So pleased my Oncologist is keeping a tight rein on things like she promised.

On the whole we didn’t do a lot and I have realised the best time for me is the morning so Im going to turn my day around so up early and shower early then tidy up and go out for fresh air. Then  today I put that in to force. Up early shower and breakfast and its raining. Oh dear housework will get done early me thinks.

This sleeping in the afternoon is time wasting and yet it means Im so alert in the evening. But today I feel back on form although I have probably depressed Christine my lovely friend. She let me moan about mt demise last night but she has put me on a straight path.

Ray is running the dogs walks but I must get more exercise in so yes I have made new rules for myself.

Tonight the Australian Opera House is going to turn the sails blue

During the launch there will be special guest performances by The Honeybees Choir.

What a lovely thing to do and wouldn’t it be great if we did something like this. Tower Bridge Or even Big Ben would be great.

Tonight is Halloween and people have been digging out their pumpkins to make great pictures.

One thought on “Living With mesothelioma -MY Diary- Oncologists appointment has been made –and its Halloween

  1. Mavis, I used to feel afternoon sleeps were a waste of precious time, but I now accept they are an investment in my well being that enables me to have a more productive afternoon ….perhaps see it as a gift where you can snuggle up and indulge yourself without any guilt that you should be doing something. I live life now with more “being” rather than “doing” just a thought.
