The op has now been completed and after just one day I am back at home. All reportedly went well with surgeons indicating that their thoughts are that the nodule in Benign, as we had suspected all along, but tests results in a few days will reveal these details. I am suffering a little at the moment but I am sure the main healing will be done soon, and long term recuperation being about six weeks. This is about the time we had planned to leave here and head south so all is working out reasonably well. I guess all I have to do now is take it very easy for the next few weeks.

We have been waiting for this moment for quite a while now, and at the moment the butterflies are starting to flutter somewhat. I am due to check in to the hospital, RBWH, at 6:00AM in the morning for my operation to remove this small nodule from my liver, and the nerves are starting to display a somewhat natural anxiety. We are going into the city to stay at a motel close to the hospital for the evening to overcome the problem of getting there so early in the morning. The operation is to be a key-hole type, ‘Laparoscopic’, and I am expected to be in hospital for 2-3 days and then a short recovery time at home afterwards, so in a week or so all should be back to somewhat of a normal routine, and feeling a lot of relief.

A rueful day today being the funeral of Linda’s sister Cheryl. Linda is in Tassie for the funeral, but with regrets I am still in Brisbane, unable to attend because of health commitments. I am very much thinking of Peter, husband, and Maxine and Sandra, sisters, and will be all day and well into the future.

The funeral For Linda’s sister is on Tuesday so Linda is booked on a flight on Monday and will return on Thursday next week. I unfortunately can’t go because I have things to do with my upcoming small operation and can’t get away.
For those who regularly read this web site you may have noticed some strange post names in some areas of the site, I am hopeful of having fixed the problem, and if you hadn’t noticed then don’t worry about it.
New South Wales
Thursday 1st March 2001, (Eden).
Well Hello New South Wales, we are now camped at Eden and I think the name speaks for itself. When we came over the mountains toward Eden there was almost a view, obstructed by trees, very much like coming over St Mary’s pass on the east coast of Tassie looking over the coast line, very picturesque and a good look at a lot of the coastline and beaches. It is a pity the trees are so tall because I am sure the view would have been rather spectacular. There seems to be heaps to do around this area so we are already talking about staying longer than the seven days that we are already booked in for.Anyway today was the usual first day in a new township by setting up camp, having a quick look around the town and visiting the local information centre for tourist information. The little elderly woman at the info centre turned out to be a wealth of knowledge about the area and started to cram us with details, even distances to places, so we had to stop her before we started to forget what she was telling us. We appeased her by saying that we would return if and when we need more info about other things to do.
That’s about all for today, as I must now try to work out a problem with my mobile phone working on the Internet so I can decide whether or not to upgrade to another later model.
