A new day

Yes today is a new day.  And after a swim and a hearty breakfast I feel ready to take on the world!  Yesterday was a bad day, but today I am revitalised and rejuvenated.  So kids, buckle up and fasten your seat belts because next the next bout in our entertaining series is:


And it got off to a flyer with a referral to the new neurologist in hand by 9.00am.  Faxed new referral to new neurologist and called for an appointment.  CRASH!  All referrals need to be reviewed by the doctor before appointments can be made.  Well never mind, the poor receptionist is going to hear from me every day until I have an appointment.

On the brighter side, yes, I didn't get very good news about my health, but I got great news from the other side of the world.  I became an uncle!  My brother had his first child yesterday and I am really happy for them all.  Mum and bub both doing well.  Welcome to the world little Johnny, I'm really looking forward to meeting you.


  1. Oh my, how adorable! Proud uncle!

    You said yesterday you would be in a better frame of mind today and you did it! Good for you. Sometimes, we just gotta moan and groan!
    I'm with you on calling the doc office every day until you get an appt. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!

  2. Thanks Wendy, it's the Tiger Woods ten steps. It's amazing how well it works. If you give yourself a time limit on being angry, upset etc.etc. I find I get back up much quicker. I've also not denied my emotions, having given myself time to be upset. Bottling it up is what I used to do, and that didn't work on any level.

  3. He's just beautiful Andrew!! What a great gift you've been given and I'm sure you'll love your role as uncle.

    Best of luck with getting an appointment. Don't give up.
