Hi Angela..My problem is if I can't make it in July Agathi will be stuck with a empty apartment for 3 weeks and that would mean a loss of money for her..so I'll try my utmost to keep to those dates for July/August..I know she would tell me there's no problem..but you know what the Greek people in Kassiopi are like and especially this lady she never wants to offend anyone..and I wouldn't want her to loose money.
 
But if there was definitely no way I could get there this year then it would be out of my hands..
 
I've told her for years she should ask for a deposit.

Thanks guys, If I can manage to get to Kassiopi this year I'll not need to take any drinking money with me because the amount of Drinks being left behind the bar will keep me going for at least two weeks.
 
Yammas to you all.

I thought I had made up my mind what method I wanted but after today I'm not so sure, I've swung from one to the other and then back.

The surgeon who would perform this operation and the support nurse explained in depth what the operation would entail and what and where I would have to do and where I would have to go and now I'm having doubts, I'll have to spend the next few days reading about it and talking to Maria and the family..
 
Up to today things seemed to be so straightforward but now the real facts have confused me a bit..
 
Poxy Smoking why in heavens name did I ever take that first puff...and bear in mind I stopped over five years ago but the damage was already done.
 
Must stop typing now or I'm going to get myself banned from here..god I feel so angry that I can't make my mind up..

Hi Bruce,
I think that the decision that you made earlier was best, but only you know what is the best for you. ConfusedThat is the problem when you have time to think things over, if only they could perform the operation there and then. 
At least if you lose that pesky bladder, hopefully the cancer will be gone. Smile 
I know what you mean about the dreaded weed, I have only been a non smoker since 28th December last year and already feel so much better.
Whatever you decide, we are all with you. Just take your time, discuss it with you nearest and dearest and I am sure that you will come to the right decision.
Love you my friend.

That's a perfectly natural reaction Bruce, so take some time to really think it through.

Your bound to feel angry (amongst a host of other emotions) and no one on site would want to be in your position

Sorry to hear all this Bruce, at least you have all the facts and you are right to take a little time to think and discuss it with the family.  You will make the right decision in the end.  Your humour and zest for life and Kassiopi will help you through this.  Best wishes to you and Maria.Smile

I am sure you will make the right decision in the end Bruce you just have to stay focused, you know your body better than anyone else. The main thing is that you are happy with what ever you decide to do and stay positive. I am sure your nurse and surgeon will help you through this difficult decision. Hope you get to Kassiopi in July that is something positive to help with the recovery Smile

Hi Bruce, I just want to add our best wishes, even though we have never met it feels like I have known you and Maria for years. You are a Star and as you can see I've borrowed your flag for a while (sort of flying the flag for you to get well soon) Love and best wishes to both of   you  HugHug

Hi Bruce.  What a shame you have to go through more treatment. But with your positive attitude you will know when you have made the right decision for you (even if you are a bit wobbly at the moment). Even in something like this I don't think you can beat the old 'pros and cons' list on a sheet of paper!
Just aim for your Corfu holiday - what better way to recouperate Hug
