I've opened this one to send good vibes to Doreen. Eileen tells me she is to undergo some tests very soon, and I want our good wishes to go with her.

Hope everything is ok Doreen, and that you will get well very soon. I'll be thinking of you. God Bless.

I just said one for you as well. My sister is always having tests lately, and it's not something she looks forward to.

Doreen asked me to say "thankyou", to everyone who made those kind and caring comments, she was so touched that she told me to say it helped clear out her sinuses. Doreen is much better than she was a couple of weeks ago, able to chat and laugh again, shes' not out of the woods yet though so lets keep those prayers going.

I took Doreen for her chemo today, she will be going again tomorrow, she is now eating her own food so is puting on a bit of weight, she hated the hospital food, (I loved it) ate all hers. I have so many friends in the same boat as Doreen, the nurses up at Ward 9 of the Gold Coast hospital think I only go up there for lunch and dinner, as I am up there so often and no-one seems to be able to eat there meals, so I am kind enough to help them out (I am all heart) Doreen has a lovely wig, she hasnt worn it yet as not too much of her hair has fallen out, it only falls out when she has a shower, so I told her to have baths instead. She looks like the Doreen of 35 years ago in the wig, does wonders for her. Paul is handling a lot of the affairs with the Health people etc, also she is entitled to pick up her English pension soon which will help her out financially. She is the nicest person in this whole world, I have never met a nicer person, kind, considerate and very funny. I wish I had half of her qualities
