I have just written a post on the “what do we tell YD?” page and it made me realise that part of the reason we told her is so that I controlled when she was told and what. This is also the way I am dealing with a lot of the other aspects of dealing with Gertrude. I have decided when to shave my head rather than waiting for it to fall out, and on Monday I have a appointment with the breast surgeon to discuss prelimnary decisions around my surgery in a few months time. I have realised I am a bit of a control freak about the small things becasue I can’t control the situation itself.
I am still feeling a little fluey but a lot less tired than I was, so I am going to go out today and get out of the house for a few hours – hopefully the weather will hold.
