Planning our Trip Home

It's been 25 days since we were told that my hubby's cancer is terminal. It's consuming and I'm finding that difficult to cope with.

Our daughter has been staying, while she recovers from her back surgery. She's returning home, when we fly to Sydney this Wednesday. I know already that I will miss her something wicked, when we return from NZ.

We have a HUGE few days planned before we fly to New Zealand.

We're flying to Sydney on Wednesday and my hubby is going to a Trade Show on the Thursday. He wasn't going to bother, but he's been getting phone calls from people he's worked with over the years, who want to see him, and this is a good opportunity to do that. Friday and Saturday will be spent with our kids, and that includes going to the Bledisloe Cup Rugby Union game on Saturday to watch our much loved All Blacks play Australia at our favourite sport!

We're staying at our favourite spot, overlooking the harbour ... so hopefully that will allow us time to refuel before our flight across the ocean.

My main wishes at this time are ... that my hubby will enjoy his time back in New Zealand, and that I will become strong and be able to support him better!

Karen, I just want you to know that you and your husband, are on my thoughts and in my prayers.

I have been a "silent" reader for a long time now, made a comment or two before. (I went to Dr Con too).

We may never meet... but you have definitely touched my heart.

Keep strong Karen.

I just wanted to tell you that its okay to feel the way you do because you are human. But please don't stop it from taking joy away from your last moments with your hubby. I pray that God will give you inner strength and sustain you.

You already seem very strong to me. I hope this trip is good, and not too overwhelming.
