Diary From Darwin Part 3: planning the next clinic

My next trip to Darwin is scheduled for August 4th 2008.

As I said in ‘Diary From Darwin Part 1’, I’ll be doing some more training at the Royal Darwin Hospital.

And that’s not all.

I’m also going along to a coffee morning being organised by someone who’d like to set up a local artificial eye support group. To get the message out, I will be sending an information flyer out with the next clinic letter.

The first meeting is a ‘getting to know you’ event. The idea of the support group would mainly be a register of people available to support others as they experience eye loss. So if you’re in Darwin and you’re interested in meeting other artificial eye wearers, please let us know.

After Darwin I will again attempt to get to East Timor. I’d like to say a big thank you to Air North. They generously allowed me to transfer my non-refundable and non-transferrable air ticket to August after my February trip had to be abandoned. Bless’em!
