9 July 15 ... Infections & milkshakes

Brendan has fared really well so far in his recovery from the last cycle of chemo, and we are now bunkering down for the next few days before heading back to Sydney on Sunday. Yesterday we had him to the doctor due to a small splinter in his finger from repairing the BBQ; that got a little bit infected. 

The infection looks like it has moved up his arm to present as an angry red, swollen lump, requiring antibiotics. If the antibiotics haven't worked by tomorrow he will have to have an intravenous dose administered, as we need him fixed before Monday’s infusion starts.

In the mean time the kids and I enjoyed a milkshake at Bent on Food today while Bren touched base with Wingham Physio. This is the next step in getting more progress happening with his leg. And now I am getting Bades ready to see the doctor out here to fix a middle ear infection. Medical and pharmaceutical love us this week.

Apologies to all those we haven't had a chance to catch up with over the last couple of weeks, there's just never a dull moment around here, hopefully in 6 weeks...after this round of chemo is finished and the results are in, we will be back to our new normal and will be up for catch ups a plenty with all of our favourite people :)

Oh and I have to give out a huge cheer, and a massive thank you to our mate Mike Eyb, his beautiful wife Kez and their gorgeous kids. Mike has just completed the last  91kms  of Race the Divide, this race is a staggering 4415km / 2743 miles long. He rode his mountain bike for something like 26 days to complete the race in support of #teambrendanm. Amazing effort, amazing man, amazing family. Thank you.

I hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of the school holidays.

Life is good and hope is limitless.
