Hi Dianna, nice to hear some news from the 'cold' country. I agree you're in for the long haul with all that treatment but remember it is all done with a view to get you better.
Don't know much about cold sores except that they are contagious, because when my wife had them, she passed them on to me. I give you one guess how.
Son is doing ok. Boss is rebuilding the plant whilst he is fishing in the middle of the Australian Bight chasing the elusive Tuna.
Fires still burning here and posing a real threat in the next few days as the temperatures are soaring and high winds are expected. Death toll stands at 201 with 7000 people being homeless. Sofar well over $100 million has been donated to assists the victims with the survivors being dermined to rebuild.
Bathy we'll keep sending them positive vibes to you, I'll do my part and you do yours, and the end result will be a happy you. Best wishes from downunder and take care.
