I started this Blog after being diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2010. It was a way of keeping family and friends informed. It then became a campaigning tool helping to make improvements in hospitals nationally. In 2013 we moved to Johannesburg, setting up our own e-education company. Now we have moved to Bangkok, a great base to explore SE Asia. After surgery 7 years ago my PSA remains at zero, the cancer is still undetectable, and I remain thankful.
Got a few little mozzer bites on the legs yesterday, didn’t
think much of it, woke up with ankles like a crippled rhino. The chemist says that
antihistamine might do it and he’s given me a strong dose, but he warned me to
see a doctor if no improvement by tomorrow. He said both legs are badly
infected and without antibiotics I could lose my feet! Not the reassuring
thought I was looking for. You don't need an appointment to see a doc here, you just show up and pay a small fee.
So it was the theme park that took our fancy today and what
fun we had. If you’ve ever been on the Irn-Bru ‘Revolution’ at Blackpool then
this is similar, but bigger, nosier and faster. We first went on before
our lunch and then decided to try it again after. As we suspected it was easier
with an empty stomach. You accelerate from what feels like 0 to 60 in about 3
seconds before you’re fired around a giant but very tight loop, coming to a
halt on a dead end vertical rail!
You then drop down backwards around the same
loop, wiz through the start point and up another dead end vertical rail, before
plunging back to the start. Breath-taking! The park was massive with 35
different rides and not much of a wait on any. Cost the equivalent of £10
each for a full day of rides and as with everywhere in this country, staff were
abundant to help at all times. Rowan and Alex went on the ‘Anaconda’, which is
the one I gave a miss, but we got around as many as we could and had a great time.
I might look happy there but I could have thrown up 5 minutes later!
Very strange but yes, all 5 are live people!
Rowan & Alex, arms in the air!
Things appear to be going well on the mission for Beverley, Julie, Alan and Wendy, very positive news coming back daily and looks like we will have to fly to a big meeting of African states in Switzerland in a couple of weeks. Why not somewhere a little more central I thought, I want to stay in the Sun, please!! I'm told that November is a lovely month, rarely going above 30c, but wait until mid summer in January!
Going out for some dinner shortly, hoping my feet don’t drop off before I can walk home. Could be my imagination but they seem slightly more comfortable after the drug 2 hours ago. Paul, I waited on Skype for 2 hours for you!! Try and catch you another time :-)
