Internet working consistently in Australia? Surely you jest!

Sadly no. Because I am sick they have to send a tech within 24 hours. He is due in the morning. Apparently it is the law.

It's great that you got out and played a little. Skills will definitely atrophy without regular practice. One thing I do when I can't play a guitar for a while is I still imagine the fingerings/chordings etc to the music I'm listening to (assuming I know it), running through the song in my head as it plays. It helps a little.

I could feel it coming on yesterday and did all I could to avoid it. but it was too hard. it took me two hours to turn off a light. i simply did not have the energy to get up and do it.

Today I must go to the hospital. That wont be easy. I must shower and dress. Twos tasks that seem normal but to me are anything but. I am sitting on the edge of my couch/bed and the sheets are soaked from the night sweats that go with this disease. I have been trying to stand but have not been able to.

I keep picturing my niece and nephew. It is my nephew's birthday tomorrow and he wants to go out for dinner. I just hope I can accompany him. He is in Sydney for the one day only then flies back to Brisbane the following morning.

It is now day 7 since they injected chemo directly into my spine. There is usually a 10 day cycle. It gets worse as the days progress. Day 10 being the worst.

I don't usually feel sorry for myself but I am kind of over it. If I just died things would be easier for everyone. They could get on with their lives and

But that is no way to think and I must remain positive.

Some days it is just hard. You know?

Some days are going to be a harder slog than others, you know that. If you "just died" things wouldn't be easier for everyone, either. You're talking nonsense right now.

Hang in there, brotha. Much love --

Was just contacted by the hospital. It looks like I may beat this thing. They are very happy with me. This new drug and my positive attitude seem to be working.

GO SCIENCE!

I am not there yet. Again I am to be admitted to hospital next week. They will do all they must. And I will fight on!

I may yet get to see my niece grow up. That's all I want. And my nephew become successful in his film career. And my brother continue to expand his worldwide production company. And get my career back. And master the riq, and.......

I don't ask much surely! Big Grin

Of course I am still in the throes of last weeks huge dose of chemo into my spine. Plus all the pills. (I should take a photo of all the boxes one day) They can make me a little crazy at times and I am thankful to all who put up with me.

Thanks for being here when I have needed you. Dale

Thanks mate.

I think you are right about thinking about playing. Once you have it in your mind it often then helps to have it in your body.

Hey guys.
Well it's getting kind of late and I just wanted to say goodnight. So here's my ugly mug at 1.01 am. I'm a bit out of it after taking all the med's earlier. Big Grin

Goodnight!

Hey Banjo, lookin good. You've still got your hair......I mean, you didn't loose it with the chemo drugs.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
