Hi Rodverta,
Bet that was a long trip home just that distance. We live in Newcastle and the surgery will be in Sydney, so will be away from our family (including our older son the longest I have ever left him because I am a pathetic mother) and elderly parents. That will all be challenging in itself but I know lots of you will have coped with things like that. It is funny when you are waiting though and you really don't know what you are coping with. This week we have the opthamologist and next week the cardiologist so at least we are doing something even though it is all a bit scary.
Hope you are doing well
