I Am A Thousand Winds That Blow ....

For all all who have supported my son Daniel, myself and my family in prayer.
I write to inform you that my son Daniel passed away peacefully in his sleep at 3.40am 26/05/2015 aged 33 years.

I am a thousand winds
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am a thousand winds that blow ….

Hello Again

Hello to all my RB friends.
I have been hopping on to RB at times to view all the beautiful work that is being posted.
I have just uploaded two more images myself. Although having lost so many skills as a result of my neurosurgery (and after almost 3 years, not likely to get much back now) I resumed my photography on “auto” as I have no recall of any of my cameras manual settings.
My son continues to battle along. Last week he asked me if he could take me out for a belated Mothers Day lunch, but he needed me to drive him. When I went to his nearby home to pick him up, out of his kitchen walked my eldest son and my daughter. What a surprise it was. I bawled like a baby. We went for lunch and had some photos taken (the first of us all together in 33 years) ~ and we were very well aware that t…

Hello

I have just popped back on to say hello to my RB friends and to upload just a few images (just in case you have forgotten about me) ):
My son is with us still. He has had some very challenging times (and set backs) but has such a strong will, he manages to deal with it all.
I have had some changes in my life and sometimes throw my hands up in despair and say “enough is enough” …. but acceptance is what it is all about.

Thank you to all those who have continued to support me (and my work).

Check In Time ....

I felt it time to “pop back” onto Redbubble, just to show I am still about, but mainly to keep you informed of the journey in our lives.
My son continues to battle on with his Cancer. He did try a different “concoction” of chemo, but again, his body reacted very badly to it. He has now began a weekly IV of Antibodies, which seems to maybe helping a little.
He received a great boost just a few days ago.
Some of you (maybe males) may have heard of Chris Jericho (through WWF) and also through a band he is involved with (called Fozzy).
Well he met Daniel last year in Australia, and has become a great friend, mentor and support to him.
He approached Daniel to do an interview with him and it was broadcast just this last Sunday and for anyone who may be interested, it is accessible on You Tube. Talk…

Where Things Are At ....

Another brief update to pass on to my RB friends.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
My son (although looking reasonably well) has now taken the step (that in the past he chose not to do) of entering into a Palliative Care service.…

In recent months he has met a beautiful young lady who has “stolen his heart”….
She has been very well informed of his cancer and the outcomes ~ and without hesitation pledged her love and support to him.
What a wonderful thing that he will enjoy her love (and she his) until his passing.

Next week my husband will travel to his surgeon for a review on the aneurysm on the aorta of his heart.
I ask that you please continue to hold my family in your thoughts and prayers ~ and I thank you for your messages and support throughout this trying and emot

Thankyou ....

I just wish to say thank you for your understanding. Although not acknowledging the wonderful comments left on my work ~ I am very appreciative of them.…

Just a small update to inform you that tomorrow my son will move back into our home.
His chemotherapy has truly left its mark on him and he cannot work any longer.
He slowly ticks of his “bucket list”. Having been a competitive cyclist from the age of 6 until 19, one wish was to compete at our local New Years Day Athletic Carnival.
He knew he could try one event only, that being the 1000m. It was amazing to see the support he had from his mates all around our state of Tasmania …
Sadly, it poured with rain and all cycling for the day was cancelled.

We were very well aware that this was his last opportunity of competition racing, and my heart

A Journey Of A Thousand Miles ....

My friends on Redbubble. Again, I have thought long and hard about posting this ~ but being a great believer in prayer, have made the decision to do so.…

I posted recently about my husbands aneurysm and pending open heart surgery and that I would be away for a while due to this.
Well when we arrived at the hospital (some 300+ kms away) he was informed the surgery would not now go ahead. We travelled home absolutely shattered, because his problem remains the same and the thought of anything major going wrong away from the hospital was very concerning.

Within a few days we had a phone call from our 30 yo son who had presented at the local hospital in the early hours of the morning with pain. The doctors considered it to be gall stones and performed some scans.
We were rocked to the core as the

Hanging By The Toe Nails ...

To all my RB friends…..
I am writing to ask that you have understanding of my not acknowledging your lovely comments over recent weeks (and more than likely for upcoming time as well).
I so very much value and appreciate your support ~ and do not wish this to be lost.
As some of you know, I struggle in many ways to overcome residual damage caused by neurosurgery (12 moths ago tomorrow) on a brain aneurysm ~ and photography was (and remains) my most preferred therapy.
And now, just to “top things off” my husband was diagnosed with an aneurysm in the Aorta of his heart and was waiting on admission to hospital ~ and last week (very suddenly) became quite unwell and was taken off to hospital by ambulance, where he suffered a mild heart attack. It seems this is not related to the Aneurysm.
We now …

Away For A While....

A note just to let my RB friends know that the Hard Drive on my computer decided it wanted to play games with me ~ and appears to have “died”….
This morning it has been “confiscated” from me for repairs ~ and I am told I wont get it back for about 2 weeks….
I have some availability to smaller notebook for a short period of time ~ so have will very limited access only until my own is returned…. so will hopefully see you again in a couple of weeks….
