What a difference a week makes!
We were cleared to return to Yangon at the weekend, and got the necessary bits and pieces in place to travel, including a “fit to fly” certificate. Orville theme again?
Monday was a long day for a short flight, but on landing I felt a huge weight lift from my shoulders and a real sense that we are in the right place. All reinforced by a warm welcome at the airport and flowers waiting from me at home. And most of all, delight at being back in our healing, peaceful home.
When we left while it was still rainy season and 7 weeks later, we arrived in clear, dry season. The air is cooler and less humid and the sky a deep, clear blue. The garden is still lush and full of colour.
I know it is a respite, I know I will be going back to Bangkok in 2 weeks for the next chemo and more Groundhog days. But I also know that there are these wonderful sunny (in every sense) days in the middle to rebuild my strength it makes this whole journey smoother and more bearable.
