Hi, I am home safe and sound from my Adelaide trip. So annoying as my appointment was at 11.15am and I saw the doctor at 1.15pm. But it was good results, I am still cancer free and I only need to go one more time, next April. If all is well, that's it for that hospital. It will be just over 3 years since I had the partial nephrectomy. The appointment was with Urology.

I will be so glad when that worry is over. My local doctor can keep an eye on me then. So much easier seeing him here.

Now it is mainly the Nephrologist that I need to go to Adelaide to see and that is every 2 months at present.

Early night to bed for me. So tired

We should have some news tomorrow about my son and his children and what is going to happen with this situation. I am hoping for some good news.

    I am so, so pleased that you are still cancer free. I pray all continues to go well for you.

We will have to try and arrange a time to meet one time you are down for your appointments with the Nephrologist. I would love to meet you in person one day.

Take care,
Jennylee

thank you everyone, it did surprise me to see all those steps. I still aim to build it up slow so that I can keep on improving again. My goals at the moment is 2 times per week. I would rather aim for that than end up where I was in the last few weeks. I am going to be like a turtle so I can win the race.

Re: my son, the answer is no. He is now having anxiety attacks since being bashed, he is not in a good place. I also think there now is some depression. He is missing his children so much and wondering wht is happening to them. Not a good situation to be in.

We are trying everything we can to try to get access to his children. Although this may be a long drawn out process, which again is not going to help my son.

This all makes me more determined to be stronger, healthier and fitter so that I can be of help to him, in his time of need. I also need to be mentally stronger and pull from my memory all that I ahd learnt in the past when I was at University.

so this all being said I need to look after me so that I can be of use to everyone else. emoticon

    Keep yourself well and anxiety after an attack like that is normal. Not sure why son can't see son if someone like that is in the home. Hope he gets to see kids soon.

    You are right Wendy, steady as she goes is the best approach, plus taking care of yourself along the way. I'm praying that everything improves for your son as well as getting access to your grandchildren.

    MOTLEM said it all -- you DO have the guts and determinitaion to win and help your son win. Prayers and hugs. Stay strong. So sorry to hear that these horrid feelings are afflicting your son, though honestly -- who would expect anything less after such trauma has been inflicted on him. **SIGH** Life just isn't fair.

    Keep your chin up - all will work out eventually for your son. It is a hard place to be when you are a dad and have children you don't get to see. Some mum's make it really hard.

You are so determined and your steps are amazing. emoticon
