The van is now checked out and ready to go, so now it is time to get our check ups.
- Skin scans, I’m ok, the doctor said the years between 6 and 14 are the vulnerable years for forming of skin cancers. I was living in England and did not get much sun exposure. Jack on the other hand had 4 big ones cut out a month ago, and, thankfully he now has the all clear and they have , almost, healed.
From Jack’s jottings…. I love a sun burnt country, I lived down by the sea, and except for melanoma there’s no better place to be. So when you are in Surfers keep an eye out for a shadow obscured by SPF30, a shadow cast by me.
- Doctor check up, blood tests, flue injections including the swine flu injection, and a top up of pill prescriptions. Both checked out OK.
- Eye test. Jack no longer needs glasses after the cataract surgery and his eyes are good. This time I needed new glasses, oh so expensive, and the optician said that I will need the cataract surgery “soon”….
- Dentist check for me…This was the most painful of all as I need major overhaul. Don’t even like to think of how much that will cost…
Jack is reading a good book and he keeps saying “listen to this one” and “I will just read you this”
This quote is so appropriate for us that I think it could be our “mission statement”
Life is mostly about what you do on your way to your destination.
