Hi xxxx
No, I'm OK sending these pages.They aren't causing me grief. In regards to miscarriage, I've dealt with it and I'm fine. That was a long time ago. I didn't get nearly as close to the finish line as Nik did.
Yes, she was sure the baby chose to leave rather than arrive. She said "I didn't protect her so she decided I wasn't the one for her."
It's so sad, you're right. Even now--years later Nik felt she needed to say sorry. I hope she got the chance if it would make her feel better.I hope she found her baby.
Well I better go...the neighbour's cow has found its way into my yard again and I don't want it in the garden. Silly thing. I will have to tie a rope around its neck and lead it home. life really is quite normal!
Love and Light

Hello xxxxx
You are going to be reading things about my partner online. Please don't be upset that Sasha never told you, or that Nik didn't.
It is a deeply deeply upsetting deeply personal loss I am feeling.
I feel that wherever he is, he is looking after me at this time in my time of need.Perhaps just maybe include him in your prayers for Nik?
Love and Light

Lissa Daly Village Idiot of Emerald Queensland Plays Olivia Newton-John Again

It sounds like you have a good plan in place to deal with Nikki. As for why she needs more chemo it's because a test result was misread at some lab somewhere, and her doctor had the good sense to question her fatigue and order more testing. She really should have been having chemo since she left for France.
As for your hypothetical about what if the chemo fails? Well, she would be given care to reduce the symptoms to have a decent quality of life. If need be she would be put in a hospice.Basically, there aren't any other options. But, let's not think about any of that. Believe me, she knows the score.
Yes, feel free to ask any questions as they come up. I might not have an answer straight away, but I know who to ask.
More than nauseous, she will feel really tired. She'll feel green around the gills, and not look so well right after treatment, but the anti-nausea medication works rather well.
Her type of dose of chemo is on the mild side (same kind that I had) and so I can say she probably won't lose her hair. Then again, everyone is different.
Hope that helped even a little bit.
I heard her last chemo session is slated for December 7, so she has her target in her mind. Time for her now to start running that race.
Love and Light

Nik told me that she told you about her battle and I just wanted to say thanks for sticking by her. She has a great fear that she will be abandoned so by simply telling us about it, she has taken a great leap of faith.
This battle will by no means be easy, but I have instructed her to choose the pace and the rest of us will follow. We can step back if getting too close or step closer if she needs that instead.
She has a great oncologist--one of Australia's finest, so she is in really good hands. If he is telling her that the prognosis is good, then it will be. She also has a great regular physician who will deal with the day to day. She has been a wonderful doctor to Nik and understands her very well. The two of them will be a great team for Nik.
Four months of chemo is hard, but it could have been worse--believe me--I know all about that. I myself went through 8 months or so.
You will easily pick up on her clues as to whether she wants to discuss anything or not. Ask her how she is doing--that is really important because it opens the door to more discussion or a polite "I'm fine". It gives her the choice of what to talk about.
There are a lot of good sources of information on the internet about breast cancer, but I'd like to tell you that sometimes you can read too much and it can cause a lot of stress and worry. It might be a good place to find information about what the patient should expect during treatment, so you can see where she is at.She is stage 1 breast cancer, which is fortunate.
If you want to ask anything, feel free. I am by no means an encyclopedia of information, but I can at least speak from experience.
Try not to worry...she is one strong girl with an iron will.
It might sound silly, but honestly, this is not a bad thing to happen to her. It is going to open her eyes and change her way of thinking. She will learn to love life again. It's up to her. She can make it a good thing or a bad one. I chose good and came sailing through.
