Chillaxing with one of my best friends – best therapy ever ❤️ Anne points out that I have a massive number reading issue with my chemo brain, as I read out some numbers and prices to her and apparently say them all in the wrong order …. hmmm…. mental note to self – no more online banking post chemo!
I read an article yesterday (yep, one day post chemo and I am able to read again!) that the compulsory mammography scans are not bringing the results they were supposed to bring – especially as there is no point having them prior to 50, as the breast tissue is too dense, “young” cancer patients like me (in cancer terms, I am considered being a spring chicken at 44 😉) are missing out on being diagnosed early enough…. the good news is that there might be a blood test that can determine, weather you have cancer or not! This is why cancer research needs to be supported!!
What a coincidence – as I plan my trip to Bali, the best option is to fly via Singapore! A friend of mine is traveling the same day from Melbourne to Singapore and we will spend a one night in Singapore. Silke will only join me later anyway, so this is a winwin for all of us and makes my eastbound journey very relaxed and I can catch up with my friend! All is booked now – will be in Bali 16th February – 2nd March 🙏
My granddad would have been 110 today and I am taking a trip down memory lane. This afternoon I am meeting my friend Holger – we were in love when I was 18, but I was too shy to admit it …. teenage troubles…. he then found himself another girlfriend and I was heartbroken. We have been back in touch for a while and I am very happy that we sorted it out. Life is too short for problems and I am even more eager to get rid off any issues since I have cancer! If there are misunderstandings/ problems, I like to talk about them, overcome any issues, forgive other people or myself and move on! I am more in the here and now, try not to look back with regret and not to plan too much for the future…. that is at least what I try to do 😉
We scroll through the rainy Frankfurt, chat away and have dinner and drinks before taking the trains in different directions.
