19 degrees, preparation and planning

We had 19 degrees today both here and up at the coast. The sky and the water were a lovely shade of blue and the hub-hub in the cafes relaxed and muted. There was even a psycho seagull that came within 30cm of my feet as we sat for coffee. The visibility was such that we could see our local “mountain” from 17km away on the way home.

If you can excuse the pun, I have been boning up on bone cancer, on and off since yesterday morning. It is a rib. I myself need to be prepared and knowledgeable. The medics won’t imagine that I do most of the cooking. The house has various features to aid with disability. I haven’t yet started with the research articles, but I will. We may need to answer the question, “what do you want to do with the time remaining?” The wife has looked at property prices in Llandudno and Llangollen, both are significant to us, we could afford a nanna flat there. I’ll have a quick look when I finish this at prices more locally.

So basically, we will drop everything and just do the hospital / health thing dependent upon what happens on Monday.

Needless to say, the mood is a tad muted and there is a leak of tears from time to time. In many ways I wish it was me and not her. I don’t like seeing others suffer, I am OK with it myself, almost inured. I can handle more of it than most. I can detach.
