My Bone Marrow Transplant

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Today we went to Balinsasayao Twin Lakes. It’s not far, except when the driver heads in the opposite direction! The first we knew something was wrong was when we were turning in to the Apo Island departure point. Linds ripped him a new one and we headed back and through Dumaguete to the turn off for the lakes.

It’s another road which isn’t for the faint of heart. The road is very narrow, some of it is unpaved, there is always a sheer drop on one side and sometimes both with no safety rails. But when you get there it is well worth it. The view of the lakes and the surrounding forest, and the peace and quiet, were great. The family went swimming in the lake and climbed the waterfall, I very wisely stayed at the lookout point because the path to the lakes turned out to be very slippery. On the way back down we stopped several times to take pictures of the wonderful scenery.

The nausea and Upper GI GvHD have been playing up. The van we have hired is not really suitable for rough roads so I get bounced around a lot
