Bronte Search and Resue
Off Bronte Beach today, at about 5.00pm, major search operation: Four helicopters and Police and Water Rescue launches.  Nothing in the news just yet.

The photo was taken from Marks Park, on a headland between Bronte and Bondi Beaches.  The launches were about 500 metres off the beach.

Bondi Plovers 2
I have already submitted this on my other DvA page, so please forgive me if you are seeing it a second time.

Sometimes nature surprises us, which only shows that we should always have a camera ready.

I spotted (really heard its parents) this little plover chick, its parents, and its sibling, when I took my wife to see her doctor, and was able to get some shots.

This family is in the heart of an urban (but seaside) jungle, and is apparently living in the car park of a unit block.

I wish this little family very well.  This little chick walked within 45cm of my feet, without its parent complaining too much.  They must be used to humans and know that we mean no harm, which is nice.

Interests
It was about this time last year that my wife found, whilst checking some bruising from a fall in the bathroom (No, I was not home and had nothing to do with it) that she had some lumps in her breast.  Her left breast.

She had this checked out, I took her to and from the appointments etc, and yes, twas breast cancer.  The malignancy (is that what it is called?) was about the size of a pea, or a cherry pit.  It was not one of the lumps that she had found: they were harmless, just little cysts.  But if not for her fall it would not have been found so early.

At that time we both thought the worst, but went through the process.  The actually diagnosis was confirmed on 11 November 2014.  Rememberance Day.  Yes, I will remember that day well.

She has the operation to remove the lump in January, and had radiation therapy to kill off any remaining cells.  All good.

So why am I writing this today?

Today was the first consultation with the surgeon since May.  All good, no sign of recurrence, 'In remission'.  She still has to see another doctor in a couple of weeks (one who was wearing red high heels on the first appointment back in February, and who will now go down in posterity as 'Dr Red Shoes').  But all seems well.

A little more relaxed.  She still has to take anti-hormone drugs for five years or so, and you may or may not know what that means but I will say little more on that topic.

In remission.

Sees the surgeon again in May next year.

Prayers answered.
