We will do the same here in Canberra. Oh dear, what tough news Ally. Life is so hard sometimes. Thank you Ally for letting us all know.

Hard to believe that BJ and Dennis have yet another hurdle to jump. Will definitely be keep them both in our prayers. Hopefully, the surgery will totally remove the one tumor and that treatment will shrink, if not destroy, the other. Either way it will be a roller coaster journey for them both. Wish I could be there to give her a shoulder and offer support and help. Let us know if you hear anything further Ally.

Heard from BJ last night. At the point of my last post they knew Dennis had brain tumour. Update of yesterday, Surgery this Thursday afternoon. Not good news- two brain tumours one is operatable but the other isn't , it will mean a course of chemo tabs and radiation. Will give you any updates as I hear. Prayer for Dennis for Thurs and also Barb.

Thanks for the update, Ally. My prayers are with them and the rest of the family. What a difficult time for them all.

I saw that message to Ally. What a trial for them both. Please pass on my hopes and wishes to them for a good outcome.

We are back from Brisbane after a busy 9 days catching up with our DD and her children while her DH was at a conference in Vermont. Our grandson is so happy and acting like a typical nearly 3 year old. He is still on medication (chemo) for the leukaemia but otherwise he is happy with his mum and dad and big sister. 

Our daughter informed us that the tough times will be in 2020-21 when the treatment ceases. Until then we will see them and play with them and enjoy our times together. We have told her we will be there to help in any way, to our best abilities.

But gee it is cold back here - icy cold and dry, dry, dry. Imagine we were wearing shorts 3 days ago. Now we are wearing 4 layers in a heating house - the house is taking its time to warm up still. 

All the best Cindy too. We just keep on keeping on. 

All the best to everyone. I now have a sewing task - a form of ballet dress for Luci - she has drawn me a picture of what she would like - another different challenge for Grandma Sandy. Love to all.

I am so sorry to hear this, prayers for a speedy recovery.

Please friends keep BJ and Dennis in your prayers or positive thoughts. BJ email me what she was thinking Dennis was struggling with dementia, turns out he has a brain tumor and is expected to be operated on  tomorrow or Thurs. Right now I am sure she and Dennis are reeling from the results of the test and upcoming op so not sure she will be in here. 

If she updates me I will try to pass it on. It is times like this we all need to feel the support of our friends.

Ally, what a beautiful picture of you and your family. WOW, 50 years! Congratulations.

In answer to your question about the size of the apartment, in some ways it is smaller; however, there are 3 bedrooms here instead of two so one is designated a sewing room. Lots of storage and less wasted space. Of course having BOTH kittens now running all over has its own challenges, until they both learn their manners. LOL.

Cindy, so sorry to hear that there have been more falls by your DH. Definitely keeping both you and your family in our prayers.

BJ, seems things have changed in your life as well, do let us know what the doctor says and if he confirms your suspicions about your DH. Will be keeping you and yours in our prayers as well.

So glad that my issue with our former landlord was resolved. We are one of the lucky few here who manage to get our deposits (or half of it) returned. I had an excellent translator/facilitator who helped us succeed in getting such good results. The stress level seemed to trigger my ocular migraines, which plays havoc with my vision at times. See some interesting things at times, just another thing to keep life interesting. LOL. Guess you could say my being deprived of artistic endeavors at the moment is coming out this way, is sometimes entertaining. The ocular distortions sometimes makes 2D items appear to be 3D, like floor tiles having depth, etc.

Well, need to run and get some much needed grocery shopping done. Hopefully, the kittens will not destroy the house before we get home. Last night we were in bed when there was a loud crash. Went in the kitchen and Mouse had pulled down a basket that I store their food in and knocked over another basket breaking a bottle of vinegar. Guess he wanted a midnight snack, so now have to put the food behind closed doors.
