What a night and what a reaction you all had to tonight's Commitment Ceremony and night's out! Breaking it down for us, John Aiken's here LIVE with Nadia to talk through her response and decision. #9Married
Help! Flossy has a problem. Despite the fact she appears to have had too many pies, she also has a bad case of nappy rash. Bobby & his balls never ONCE suffered any nappy rash grief, but poor Florence is copping it hard. Is it something to do with girls? Seriously. I don't know why it's so bad. We are vigilant with hygiene and using a barrier cream, as well as trialling a wide variety of products etc but nothing is working. Any magic fanny tips out there for me? 🙏🏻
Geraldine here. Thank you so so much for all your beautiful messages, prayers, thoughts, love and offers of support. Please don't think I haven't been reading them because I haven't commented, I read each and every one of them and when Lisa's awake I read a few randomly selected messages to her as she's only awake for a minute or two at a time. She is so touched that you all continue to be an important part of her journey, it means the world to her and to us, the family.
Since my last update Lisa's health has continued to deteriorate. We were advised yesterday morning that anyone wanting to say goodbye to Lisa should do so within the next couple of days and we immediately informed our friends and family.
As you can imagine Lisa's room has been constantly busy today, her gorgeous friends have flown in from all around the country to ensure they get some quality time with her. Although Lisa is sleeping quite a lot she is aware of what's going on around her and will come out with some cracking one liners, true Lisa style. She is obviously on a lot of strong drugs at the moment and is getting a little confused which is why she woke to tell us Caitlin Jenner would be busy getting all dressed up for Halloween, I have to say this really did make us LOL. She also woke to ask us who wants to put a bet on that she'll still be here at Christmas, her words may be slurred but her wit and humour remain intact.
As you know, our wee granddaughter Ava is the number one person in Lisa's Life. Ava has only known Lisa as being sick. She knows there are good days and bad days, days when Aunty Lisa was able to play and days when she wasn't. Steven and Marianne have brought her to the hospital every day, this is nothing new for her but like the rest of us she is probably expecting Lisa to come home again.
I think the reality has finally hit us all that this isn't going to be like every other time we have been in Palliative care, we know that Lisa will not be bullying the Drs into letting her go home, not that she hasn't tried. I popped home to have a shower and as I walked in the door the first thing that struck me was Lisa would never walk into our home again, she'd never sleep in her room and she'd never stand guard over me in the kitchen to ensure I didn't even look near any ingredients that contained gluten, my heart broke. Our gorgeous girl is not coming home, even after all this time we're not prepared.
Lisa is definitely the brave one in our family, how we will cope with her loss when the time comes is yet to be seen. One thing I know for sure is our lives will never be the same again, there'll always be a massive void that no one can fill. I just pray that we all find the strength to get through what lies ahead.
Please continue to keep Lisa in your thoughts and prayers, we just want her pain free and at peace. I have promised Lisa that I will continue to keep you updated which I will. Apologies to those that have gone to great efforts to send private messages, I assure you I have read them all.
I am SO excited about today. I'm attending my first ever Mardi Gras and I'm hosting the broadcast with one of my best friends (Joel Creasey. I'm busting on the inside over the fact I get to celebrate with a community I'm a fierce ally of. I'm honoured to be included in today's celebrations. I don't pretend to know of the struggles their community has gone through but I do know what it is to be an outsider. The LGBTQI community have always welcomed me. They've never told me I'm too much, too loud or too bright. They deserve marriage equality, they deserve equal treatment, today I will be shouting that from the rooftops. HAPPY MARDI GRAS BITCHES!
The Liberals have been waging war on renewables and now the price of electricity is double what it was with the Greens/Labor carbon price and a higher renewable energy target.
