Update on the Future.

Post  Dennman on Sat May 13, 2017 10:29 pm

Update on the home front sittiation.

Bren came outa surgery on the 19th with 2 thumbs up.
She still had the epidural in so; when that fell out over night,she had a really bad following day.
Spent 5 days in ,then home to the couch where she's been since.
She did have one day that she tried to be her old self, but found that she can't do all the bending and lifting.Suffered for a few days.
Had a follow-up with her surgeon and now chemo is coming.She's just waiting for a call from Victoria to set a date for a trip down there to see the specialist.
She'll be getting treatment here in Comox.

Bottom line: I don't think I'll be gettin away from the farm on my usual departure time for July 1.
Depending on how Bren handles the treatment,I may not get away at all.

Enjoy what you have while you can.The unexpected bumps in life may be bigger than they first appear.

Good luck with everything Denn, positive thoughts going out for you guys.

I'll be in Comox visiting a work buddy end of July for a couple of days - if you are still hanging out at home I'll look you up.
If you do get away I'll see you on the road or here at my place.

Thanks fellas.
Now we're waiting on a call for Bren to get another CT Scan appointment before she can get the call from Victoria for the specialist appointment.
No idea when any of these will be happening.
Holding off on Weerier insurance til I get some idea.Don't have much free time for ridin anyway.

Well some progress has been made in Bren's treatment.
She got a letter from Victoria for an appointment down there on the 20th.
She had some pre-appointment tests done locally. Blood work done yesterday and a CT scan this morn.
She told me to go to Toad and Horsethief,so that still kinda depends on when the local hospital chemo starts and how she reacts to that.

Hey Denn,

I don't think we have met (unless my dementia insists on that Rolling Eyes ), but FYI a really BIG dumptruck is unloading a whole lot of good vibes on your front lawn as we speak.

Fingers crossed.

Thanks fellas.Bren's been picking up her animal chores again, so I've had some time to pull the Weerier out and clean her up.

Insured just after the long sunny weather and just before the rains and wind. Takes me back to the days when my ridin buds would give me a hard time for insurein my scoot. The weather would go for a shit as soon as I did.

Mark,we've never met.Your gray matter is not failing you.I ride by your locale every year on my way out East to see all the Mofos that are members here.Always take the Duffy Lake road to get there.

I'm minutes from the Horseshoe Bay docks.
ANYONE in here is VERY WELCOMED to stop by.

I try to keep my fridge semi-supplied with some random, cheap beer - helps washing off the awful ferry "food" Very Happy

Just let me know ahead.

How did it go today Denn? I reserved a spot in the Back 40 for me and Drano again this year. Hope Bren is doing OK and you might be able to sneak away for a bit.

You and Brenda are in my thoughts.

Bren had a friend drive her down to Victoria.Left at 9 am and got back at 10 pm.They took in a few sites while down there.She was pissed that her old restaurant favourites were overpriced for such meager offerings.
Her last CT scan showed a couple spots on her lungs but that could be old scar tissue.
She'll have to have double chemo treatments every 2 weeks for 6 months.
More waiting for a call from the local hospital for that..

Bren got her call and has to go in for the insertion of a "Port",for the chemo, in her arm. It feeds into a vein to the heart. She'll get 2 treatments every 2 wks. for 6 months.
No definate date yet on the start of therapy but I see there's a mention of 5-7 days of discomfort after the installation.
Bikes ready and I'm beginning to assemble the travel gear.I intended to leave Tues. and do an easy 2 days instead of my usual speedy trip. Now I'm not too sure what I'll be doin.

It'd be so much easier on us both ,if she didn't have all these fucking animals to feed and clean up after.

Bren has seen her local Doctors and due to their schedules she can't get the pre-treatment minor surgery til after the long weekend .Chemo won't start til around the 15th.

I'm out on my Tour tomorrow at 5:15 a.m.

Paul ,barring any unforseen delays ,I should be in your neighbourhood about 6:00 p.m. I think that's about how long it took on another occasion.

I'll be stopping at that Petro Can gas bar for a break.I'll give you a call from there.

See ya'll that's goin to The Toad.
