Uta’s Diary, 19th of April 2017

19 Apr

A week ago Peter started his BCG Treatment:

http://www.macmillan.org.uk/information-and-support/bladder-cancer/non-invasive-bladder-cancer/treating/bcg-treatment/bcg-treatment-non-invasive-bladder.html

He was supposed to get the second treatment today, but it was cancelled because a ‘bug’ was found in his urine. The doctor told Peter, that it was a very unusual bug. When Peter asked him, should he be worried, the doctor said no, that ‘this unusual bug was very common’. Peter still does not know, what sort of bug it actually is. But he has to undergo now a 14 day treatment with antibiotics. So his next treatment with BCG is now scheduled for in three weeks.

All of us did the Loop Walk. Some went a bit further up before they turned back into the Loop. My brother Peter and Astrid went the furthest. I waited for them in the reception.

Little Alexander found a little Easter Egg.

 

Alexander and Lucas found quite a few more little Easter Eggs and shared them with all the adults! That was after a delicious lunch with filled Bread Rolls provided by Monika and Ebony. We were also treated with coffee from the cafeteria. The kids did get some Ice-Cream from Uncle Troy.

 

 

 

For Afternoon Coffee and Cake we were home again.

Some more Rain onWednesday, the 12th of April 2017

12 Apr

Well, yesterday, on Tuesday, the weather was beautiful. We went to Corrimail to the new Primary Medical Centre:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Primary+Medical+Centre+Corrimal/@-34.3718465,150.7557746,11z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x6b131ed02aea0009:0xf7276eec5b93d483!8m2!3d-34.3718465!4d150.8958503

Peter’s doctor had moved from Dapto to Corrimail. The new doctor in Dapto was on a three week leave. So Peter decided he could see his old doctor in Corrimail. At the same time I managed to see a skin specialist at this centre in Corrimail. She gave me some treatment straight away. I did not have to wait! I was very happy that this service was available.

When we arrived home yesterday all my washing that I had hung out early in the morning, was dry already. It was beautiful to have fresh bed linen! Today, Wednesday, Peter had to start his BCG treatment at Wollongong Hospital. When we arrived back home, it was raining again.

Peter and Astrid were with us in Corrimail yesterday. Today they left early to catch the train to Sydney. They were looking forward to explore Sydney for one day. I hope the weather will be okay for them. They experienced a beautiful mild and sunny day with a light breeze last Saturday. They had booked a trip on the Tall Ship James Craig:

It was a beautiful sailing adventure for them. They loved it very much.

They spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Sydney and stayed overnight in Glebe with C and M. On Friday we spent the day with P and A in Sydney, visiting the Chinese Gardens and walking along Darling Harbour to where the Tall Ship was to have a look at it.

On Saturday Peter and I stayed home in Dapto, but on Sunday we drove to Glebe and had a lovely day there with C and M, and P and A.

Last week on Thursday we went to Port Kembla Beach with our guests. I still have pictures from last Thursday and Friday as well as Sunday and want to publish some of them now:

It was good to know that there were some Lifeguards in attendance even though the beach seemed completely deserted.

No Rain onWednesday, the 5th of April 2017

11 Apr

As far as I can recall, we had no rain last Wednesday. We had first stopped at Bulli Beach and from there we drove further up north along the Sea Cliff Bridge and up to Bald Hill. On the way back we stopped at Austinmer and had there some fish and chips for a late lunch at a nice cafe. At Austinmer there is also a beach and a swimming pool. We liked to take some more pictures at Austinmer Beach.

On that day when we stopped at Austinmer there was hardly anyone at the beach, I would think though that some visitors may appear during the upcoming Easter period.

Further up north we had been at Bald Hill. This area is very popular with Hang Gliders.
