Sunshine, blue skies, warmth — that’s my kind of winter! Perth weather back to normal for a while. Hurrah!
However, all of these pleasant circumstances are marred by the news that an internet friend of some years, literally a gentleman and a scholar, has unexpectedly been attacked by “an aggressive sarcoma”. He went in for a test yesterday, and found himself on the table losing a spleen and some lengths of colon. He’s soon to start chemo- and radiotherapy on his liver. Liver cancer does not have a good survival rate. This comes a few months after losing a son-in-law and a grandchild to a nut loose behind the wheel.
