How to stop a galah from squawking (you can’t)

A great thing about having a blog is that you can take a peek under the bonnet and find out how many people are reading it and what search terms they use to get to it. Today, I see someone has landed at my blog by searching “how to stop a galah from squawking”. Well, if there were ever a hopeless exercise, it is trying to stop a galah from squawking.

How to stop a galah from squawkingHappily, it would seem that this galah will be squawking for some time yet. This week I’ve been in Sydney for a battery of tests and specialists’ appointments. Everyone has given me top marks. The CT scan shows a great big fat zero on the tumour front – well, almost. There’s still an 8mm cyst in my liver but that might or might not be part of the cancer story, but that’s nothing compared to the 11cm and 5cm tumours I started out with. They’ve gone entirely and now it’s just a matter of mopping up any remains with my last two chemo sessions. The first of these is tomorrow (erk) and then there’ll be only one to go. I’m hoping that by spring, I’ll be pronounced In Remission. Squawkin’!

    Fan-bloody-tastic. Well done to you Tracy – there’s alot of squawking left to do! That next chemo session has come around quickly – I’m sorry I’ve not dropped in to see you since last time.

    Wishing you speeding recovery from the next nadir – and here’s to the liver lesion being a benign spot.
