update #9

hello all,
a rocky couple of weeks...and now l have a grip

Moannie/Mum is still home, resting, trying to build her strength. She is consumed with tiredness, and spends much of the day resting on her bed, cos she CAN!

She is in the middle of her second round of chemo and doesnt much like her new look..I daren't repeat how she described it, but suffice to say it was hilarious! Thank goodness for humour eh?

Mum will probably be reigning supreme from the couch on Christmas day (god its christmas day already!) with JP/Dad, NOAOS and Lita Mona in attendance. my sis will be in charge of the kitchen, apparently Dad/JP is her sous chef and NOAOS my brother will be in charge of the timetable, humour and games.

I'm sure you all wish Mum/Moannie along with me a very merry but gentle Christrmas in the midst of family.

Here it will be a very quite day, the morning spent with my son after which he joins his Dad for lunch and funny games, by which l mean charades of course! He'll be back with me on Boxing day to gorge on my own cooked christmas lunch.  Yum can't wait, as l have Mum;s/Moannie touch with the gravy.....

Happy Christmas one and all.

  1. Thank you for the updates, 'alice.' Please give your Mun a big hug from me.. and one for yourself, also. Merry Christmas to your family. May next year be full of good cheer.

  2. I'm most thankful Moannie is able to spend Christmas at home with her loved ones and not at the hospital! Merry Christmas to you both. I, too, wish for you both a better 2013, filled with happy, healthy days.

  3. Glad Moannie is home for Christmas and I'd like to wish all the family a Very Merry Christmas! Behave yourself Moannie!

  5. Good to hear that you are all home together for a family Christmas. What it's all about. Very best wishes to you and your mum, wishing you strength, hope and love in 2012.

  6. Merry Christmas to you and the whole clan xoxox

  7. Happy Christmas - I feel with you on the chemo thing, I watched my Mum going through that and it is pretty horrid.

  8. I wished your Mum the best already, but I forgot to wish you the same before Christmas. A pox on me! Here's wishing you a (belated) Merry Christmas and a (on-time) Happy New Year with God's good blessings!
