  2. 2. Messages Posted on Howsisbunny.com Jane Montgomery Dunkelberg 2/01/2009 3:43:39 PM I am so sorry. Dear Sean, I remember when you were in first grade at East Side. I was not your teacher but I knew you well because of teaching with your dad. I have such fond memories of John’s year at East Side and watching you kids grow up. We have (slightly)kept in touch via Christmas cards. I just received their card today (1/2/09) and read about Bunny’s illness. I pulled up the website and realized what had happened. My heart goes out to you and to John and Libby. Love, Jane Montgomery Dunkelberg Submitted By: Jane Montgomery Dunkelberg Simmonne 2/01/2009 2:00:38 AM for Sean Hi Sean, I am one of Cindy’s close friends from her Mother’s group, and I had the enjoyment of meeting Michelle on several occassions (as a part of Cindy’s ‘girl gang’!). Cindy has shared with me, on a few occasions, the special relationship you and Michelle have had with Archer (and no doubt, with Julia too). This relationship (as conveyed to me by Cindy) tells me that both Michelle and yourself possess true quality of character, which doesn’t disappear with death, because the imprint of it remains, in hearts and in minds. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you. Sim-monne. Submitted By: Simmonne Elicia 1/01/2009 7:13:16 AM Sean I actually wanted to send Bunny a message just to let her know I am thinking of her, but unfortunately I was too late. I was fortunate enough to meet bunny a couple of times and she seemed like such a lovely, easy going person, and I remember that huge smile she had on her face showing off her rock after you two got engaged. I truly am thinking of you often and wishing you all the best for the next few days as i can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to say goodbye to the love of you life and best friend, even is she is just in the next room. (meg’s friend) Submitted By: Elicia Lucy 1/01/2009 6:00:09 AM Hi Sean I found out from Cindy and have been really upset for days. Today was the first day I could face the website and wanted to say to you that I am so sorry to hear about Chelles. Although she wasnt directly my sister in law I always felt close to her and loved her very much. We are in Uk at the moment but have put a request to return earlier as I re-ally want to be with Chelles on 6th Jan. Please take care of yourself. Love Eric Lucy and Abby xx Submitted By: Lucy Tracie (Bunton) Lacey 1/01/2009 5:20:55 AM Shell Bell Dear Sean, My thoughts are with you. I heard of the passing of my little cousin from my brother. I was shocked to hear she had suffered from the same terrible illness as my Aunty C . I havent been in contact with Shell for many years ,so only have memories of a little girl,who loved life and her family. I have been reading all about the Gorgeous young woman who she grew into and how loved she was. She is with her Mum and her Aunty Hihene (Irene ) now and at rest. Tracie Submitted By: Tracie (Bunton) Lacey Michelle (Youngie) 31/12/2008 3:59:44 PM My thoughts go out to you Sean, your family and Bunny’s family at this difficult time. I worked with Bunny at Med-ibank. When I joined the company in 2001, Bunny instantly welcomed me and made me feel part of the team - that was how Bunny was. Wicked humour, infectious smile and the biggest heart. Over the years I worked there we shared many laughs, girlie chats and a few nights out on the tiles. What I loved and admired about Bunny was her sense of self - she knew who she was, what she wanted and what she believed in - and from that she never wavered. Bunny’s beautiful legacy to all who knew her will always burn bright. Bless Ya Bunny Youngie (Michelle Young) xx Submitted By: Michelle (Youngie) Blog Posts by Sean Times like these Jan 3 Written by: Sean 3/01/2009 11:12 PM The Foo Fighters couldn’t have described my day better... it’s times like these you learn to live again it’s times like these you give and give again it’s times like these you learn to love again it’s times like these time and time again What can I say but three words: Jade and Rhys. They continue to amaze me, let me talk and make me laugh. Just a simple trip to a shopping centre (didn’t want them the only ones without sunnies!) was a terrific experience. If Collingwood can tackle has hard as Rhys hugs then they’ll do alright. Jade continues to grow up before me her warmth and maturity gives me that quantum of solace. We tackled a super variety bucket at KFC and ate way too much (you are right hun I am Carl Williams), but as Bun taught us we walked it off by shopping. JL went back for a Krispy Kreme, bless her! Bun is very much in our thoughts, Rhys mentioned that he and Bun still had the Northland to home record at 3 minutes, we tried to beat it but we think someone was fiddling with the lights to prevent us. Cel it was good to catch up and see some great photos. The kids hadn’t seen shots of me dressed as Angel and Bun as a Can Can girl at my 30th, thanks. We are headed surfing tomorrow, Bunny never surfed always threat-ened to. She will be tomorrow. I know many of you are finding it tough, I can only talk from my experience here (doing my personal Doogie Howser - world’s first blog-ger) getting it out somewhere, no matter what you say. It definitely helps me. Quantum of Solace By Sean on 2/01/2009 7:24 PM No I am not doing movie reviews but I am headed out for with Skip & Vlade to see the latest Bond flick. The title could not be more apt in my life at this minute. Lieutenant Dan did a great job today fixing up things around the house, the security/fly screen door out the back in installed I agree with Dan when he says “I’m pretty happy with that.” I think most parts of the service for Tuesday are set just need to type them up and hand it over to our creative team (Larry, Laz & Hilario). Thanks Martwell for the chat I won’t tell anyone about biblegateway.com I promise.
  3. 3. Dominik Pietrzykowski 30/12/2008 9:14:07 PM Michelle Dear Sean, you don’t know me but I worked with Michelle at Medibank. I will miss her very much, haven’t been at MPL for a while but she is definately a person I have fond memories of from my 5 years there. It was always nice to see her early in the morning all happy and that was pretty much my coffee (pick me up for the day). She definately had that affect on a lot of people there and I can only imagine the loss you feel. With deepest sympathy, Dominik. Submitted By: Dominik Pietrzykowski Tilly & Leanne 30/12/2008 6:13:51 PM Not much more to say than we will miss you Bunny! There will always be a place in our hearts and thoughts of your beauti-ful smiling face! Our hearts go out to you Sean and your family at this time. Lots of Love, Tilly & Leanne xox Submitted By: Tilly & Leanne Bernie Runting (Callanan) 30/12/2008 6:04:46 PM So Sorry Sean I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Bun-ny, I did not get to meet her but she sounded like a beautiful girl who you loved very much. My thoughts are with you and all the Family. Love from Bernie (Your second cousin from Pakenham). Submitted By: Bernie Runting (Callanan) Ryan 29/12/2008 9:20:11 PM Sean, I’m sorry for your loss. I hope you and your family are coping okay. I really can’t think of much else to say. I think I’ll go make a donation to the McGrath foundation, just to feel a little bit useful. All the best. Ryan Submitted By: Ryan Roy and Judy 29/12/2008 2:51:48 PM Just got back in today 30/12 and read the email from Alan. It was a shock for Judy and myself - especially since we were thinking of Michelle and you very much in the lead up to Christmas and on the Day itself. Our thoughts are with you and the children Sean. Roy and Judy Submitted By: Roy and Judy Douglas Clay 29/12/2008 3:35:44 AM It was such a shock to find out. We used to talk and found out we lived in the same street when we were kids. Of the many years I have known Bunny, she has always been happy, kind and considerate. I, we, are the better to have known her. I will miss her. To Sean and the family, my thoughts are with you. Doug. Submitted By: Douglas Clay Genevieve Heasly 28/12/2008 4:40:57 AM Angels in life Angels are with us for such a short time. They come into our lifes and fulfill our needs sadly they leave far too soon. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts Love Gen Submitted By: Genevieve Heasly Anna Smith 27/12/2008 2:04:43 PM Thanks Am sitting in the hotel room in Queenstown and just sorted the internet. The first thing I wanted to do was check up on Michelle. I am sorry to hear that she has passed away but I know she is at peace. I only worked with Michelle for a few months but she made everyday that much more worth-while. Thanks Michelle for reminding me that lines are there to be crossed and that joy and humour can be found in the smallest things. Thanks Sean for providing us with the op-portunity to send our love and best wishes when we needed to. Bless ya Michelle as you blessed us. Anna. Submitted By: Anna Smith Joe & Debbie Alexander 27/12/2008 8:37:47 AM Bunny’s passing We just received John & Libby’s Christmas letter yesterday evening (12-26-08) and learned of Bunny’s struggle. Pulling up the site this morning, we are stunned and deeply saddened to see she lost her battle with cancer. Our love, thoughts, and prayers travel half-way around the world from Elizabethton, TN USA to Sean and all of the family. We hope that knowing people around the world are thinking of you brings some small comfort and peace now and during the difficult days, weeks, and months ahead. Love, Joe & Debbie Alexander Submitted By: Joe & Debbie Alexander A couple of small wins that meant a lot today were being able to get the 4th Twilight book for JL and the perfect parallel park at the dry cleaners. I pumped my fists like Hiro Nakamura because I know Bun was cheering in the passenger seat. Can’t wait to see Jade & Rhys tommorow. xoxo Sean Good Days Bad Days Dec 31 Written by: Sean 31/12/2008 4:32 PM Heard this on the radio from the Kaiser Chiefs sums up my week. At the moment the good days are still well in front thanks to family and friends, I plan to keep it that way with your help. Thanks to those who have called or texted me, I don’t mind the phone calls I understand what Ryan is feeling (see posts: re useless) Ryan you are anything but. Your mes-sages, blood and donations mean a whole lot! For those who haven’t called I can feel your support as well, if you can’t think what to say that’s fine to. Just post a message of what you’re thinking or feeling it seems to be working for me. Thanks Chinna for the following she recieved in a card of support (from Henry Scott Holland 1847 -1918) couldn’t sum it up better myself. Death is nothing at all I have only slipped away into the next room I am I and you are you Whatever we were to each other That we are still Call me by my old familiar name Speak to me in the easy way you always used Put no difference into your tone Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow Laugh as we always laughed At the little jokes we always enjoyed together Play, smile, think of me, pray for me Let my name be ever the household word that it always was Let it be spoken without effort Without the ghost of a shadow in it Life means all that it ever meant It is the same as it ever was There is absolute unbroken continuity What is death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind Because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you for an interval Somewhere very near Just around the corner All is well. Nothing is past; nothing is lost One brief moment and all will be as it was before How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Michelle was an absolute bloody gem of a woman and it was an honour and a privilege to have known her. I am a better person for it. My heartfelt wishes and thoughts to Sean and Michelle’s families. Love Mandi xx (who just sneezed - in her own time as Michelle would have requested!) Submitted By: Mandi Kate Connelly 26/12/2008 9:03:00 AM Words cannot express how I feel at the moment but I will try. Michelle will live forever in my heart as an inspiration to live life to the fullest extent every day. I will encourage my children to appreciate every day that they have and help them to strive to be the very best people that they can be using her as an example. She was a courageous woman to the very last and an inspiration to me. Sean my love and thoughts are with you, Jade and Rhys and Michelle’s family as well as everyone else who has posted to this site. I for one will miss her dearly. Kate Connelly Submitted By: Kate Con-nelly chinna 25/12/2008 11:50:58 PM love to you To my little sis-in-law. I’ve known you since you were 18 with your long blond spiral curled hair and that cute tough attitude. You have become an extraordinary friend and special little sis over the years and your beam-ing vibrant personality will never be lost in my heart. Archer and Julia are extra special little kids because of you and the magical love you instilled in them and we all will love you forever. Peace to you beautiful girl. Chinna xxxx Submitted By: chinna Kate Connelly 25/12/2008 9:17:24 PM Just dropped by to let you both know that we are thinking of you. Alan, Kate, Lachlan and Peter.

Appreciate the support, it has been REAL good. Funeral Notice: 2:30pm 6th Janu-ary 2008 at St Pius X Church By Sean on 30/12/2008 9:33 AM Dad and I went and spoke with Fr Edwards at St Pius X in Waterdale Rd. He was very helpful and we confirmed that the funeral will be at 2:30pm on Tuesday 6th January 2009. Thanks for all the notices in the paper, I’m sure you won’t mind if I reprint them on HowIsBunny as well. Funeral notice will be in the paper in time. Donations in lieu of flowers to McGrath Foundation or Breast Cancer Network Australia would be appreciated. Donation envelopes will be available. Today I will open my iPhone and look over the music I was playing on Boxing Day. It will be tough but I will be surrounded by friends. As Matt, Dan, Cel & Mellissa can attest I was able to pull some tears with a few of those, some of which were suggested by your posts (No Marty I do not have the Collingwood Theme song on my iPhone). Bless ya Sean How is Sean? Doing OK Dec 29 Written by: Sean 29/12/2008 8:24 PM Not changing the domain name but thanks to all who are asking “How Is Sean?” I wouldn’t have it any other way. I know Bunny was always worried about everyone so I understand and appreciate it very much. Mum & Dad are down for few days helping out around the house. We have been sorting through washing, cleaning, gardening just normal stuff. Yes there are a lot of memories surrounding me but they give me comfort. It was weird head-ing to a few shopping centres with Mum (nothing against you Mum) but Bunny and I did spend a lot time shopping together. Bun would be proud of me today I bought a new shirt with little indecision or procrastination, I can be quite frustrating to shop with but Bunny put up with it. I just said to myself today WWBD or What Would Bunny Do, which in this case would be, “Hurry up and make a decision you are starting to shit me. (All with a smile on her face)”. Made me smile.
  5. 5. Lucy, Eric and Abby 25/12/2008 1:14:52 AM Merry x-mas Hi Sean and Chelles, thinking of you today and sending lots of strong love to you both. Love ya guys Eric Lucy and Abby xxx Submitted By: Lucy, Eric and Abby All the Heaslys and Glynns 24/12/2008 7:41:55 PM Merry Christmas Hi Bunny and Sean, We’ve managed to put Angus (who has been spoilt rotten) off for his afternoon nap and are thinking of you at Christmas time. God bless you and looking forward to seeing you again soon. Submitted By: All the Heaslys and Glynns Karen Jones 24/12/2008 5:43:49 PM We Wish you a Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas guys! We will certainly be raising those glasses to the gorgeous Bunny when we crack open the champers today and we will also be raising our glasses to you Sean. Our Sean sends special Christmas hugs and kisses to you both and we look forward to seeing you very soon. Lots of love from Troy, Jonesy and Sean.xxx Submitted By: Karen Jones Kate Connelly 24/12/2008 5:09:22 PM Happy Christmas Michelle and Sean - I consumed my fair share of champagne last night and Michelle the bubbles and happy thoughts were flowing your way. Now the joke for the day - “What do you get when you cross Santa with a witches cat?” - “Santa Claws”. All the love and best wishes in the world - Alan, Kate, Lachlan and Peter Submitted By: Kate Connelly Jade 24/12/2008 4:59:03 PM Merry Christmas Bunny!! Love you lots Jade Submitted By: Jade Meg Vila Pouca 24/12/2008 3:45:08 PM Merry Christmas Merry Christmas Bun & Sean - we’re thinking of you both today & sending all our Christmas wishes your way. Bun - it was so nice to spend some time with you last night and as always you’re still more worried about others than yourself checking that I was comfortable etc, bless ya! You will be happy to know that you won’t be the only one not tucking into the pork crackle today, Laz’s parents don’t do pork for Christmas! (I know what are they thinking!) So I will just have to have a champers for you instead :). Love you lots & will see you again soon. Meg & Laz xxx p.s. I hope you made David watch al the carols last night!! Submitted By: Meg Vila Pouca Regina Radcliffe 24/12/2008 2:57:00 PM Christmas Wishes for Bunny & Sean & Family Wishing you a Merry Christmas filled with oodles of Love and Hope.

Because it doesnt have legs. Oh yes, I’ve done it again!!! Thinking of you both! xox Submitted By: Alyce & Ryan mairs 24/12/2008 2:24:17 PM Happy Christmas beautiful Bunny and Sean. Hope you have a really special day together. A cast of hundreds of family and friends will be toasting you and sending all the love and good wishes in the world. Can’t wait to collect all the Christ-mas Cracker jokes to share with you tomoz. Should take the lame joke challenge to a whole new level, although Tim and Bern have already set a high standard in that department! Slainte! Mairs, Pete and gang xox Submitted By: mairs I must say I continue to draw great strength from my amazing children who light up my days with a simple text message or phone call. The best example I have is a simple text I got from them after discussing what they wanted in their personal notice in the paper. “We love you bunny we will miss you lots and lots we will always be thinking about you love ya jade and rhys there it is dad can’t wait till the beach cu l8r love ya jade” With messages like that how would you feel? Funeral planned for Tuesday 6th January 2008 By Sean on 28/12/2008 4:53 PM Thanks again to all from the support from all over Australia and the world. Personally I would like to thank my family which includes Callanans, Coxs and now Buntons for their offers of assistance, food and shoul-ders to cry on. The funeral is tentatively planned for Monday 5th January 2009, please check back here or in the Herald Sun for confirmation. Bunny’s wishes were for no flowers but donations to charity again I will provide the details soon. If you have a fave Bunny photo please email them to tellme@ howisbunny.com. Notices will be in Mondays paper but I will post them here as well. Please enjoy your holidays as much as you can, celebrate the end of 2008 the way Bunny would. HowIsBunny exclusive: Monday’s notices Dec 27 Written by: Sean 27/12/2008 8:32 PM Callanan (nee Bunton) – Michelle aka Bunny 14/06/74 – 26/12/08 Bunny passed away peacefully after a brave fight against breast cancer with Sean, Orval, David, Matt and Lieutenant Dan by her side. She made this “corner of the earth” an amazing place with her smile, vital-ity and presence. She was ready to be with her Mum, Curl, two amaz-ing women now at peace together. Beloved does not seem strong enough for the way we all felt about Bunny as a wife, sister, daughter, aunty and mate. She loved life and the people who played a part in it, she made a huge impression on all who knew her especially the kids. Jade & Rhys, Archie & Julia, Eden & Ava, Darcy & Beau, Becky & Adam, Aimee, Zoe & Charlie, Finn & Lily, little baby Sean and many more were all very lucky to have known Bunny. She loved all of you to bits, you all had a special place in her heart. Bunny, I cannot express how much you enriched the lives of Jade, Rhys & I. Our home has been filled with love and laughter as it will continue to be as you have left us with so many great memories.

I enjoyed our secret girls club, up late whispering with Cel at 1am. It was just like old times, sleepovers with you fluffing the sheets to share your lovely fart smells! As we discussed, Ian is the nicest smelling male nurse ever, tell him to keep up the good work! xox Love u always and forever xox Submitted By: Lish Thank you to Dr Rowan Doig and all the staff at Epworth 4EW. To quote Bun, “We welcome the day we brought you on board.” Thanks to Michelle’s colleagues at Medibank Private especially her mentor and friend Alan, your support over the past two years has been remarkable. Thanks to everyone for the mes-sages of support on HowIsBunny. com. Goodbye my lover, Sean BLESS YA CALLANAN, Michelle (Bunny) On Boxing Day after a courageous battle with cancer. Beloved wife of Sean, step mother and friend to Jade & Rhys, loved and loving daughter in law of John and Libby, sister in law of Matt and Bridget, Meg and Larry, Dan and Kristy, special auntie to Darcy and Beau. We will miss you Bunny, your smil-ing face and your special sayings always brightened up our day. Rest in peace Bunny. Love John & Lib xx CALLANAN, Michelle (Bunny) We will all miss you Bun. Bunny from day one you were always so energetic and gener-ous - always looking after others (especially spoiling Jade and Rhys and your niece and nephew). Your positive outlook rubbed off on us all and we feel privileged to have shared so many great times and having you as part of our family. The love and commitment you and Sean shared will not be forgotten, nor will the friendship that you shared with Jade and Rhys. Your fighting spirit was there to the very end and the courage, devotion and strength Sean displayed is admired by us all. Bless ya Bun, Matt, Bridge, Darcy and Beau, Meg and Larry, Dan and Kristy xoxo Corner of the earth By Sean on 26/12/2008 6:31 PM It was this song by Jamiroquai that was playing as Bunny passed away. Thank you all for the support as soon as the cricket is finished we’ll have a venue to celebrate Bun’s life with family and friends. Love Sean Goodbye my lover Dec 26 Written by: Sean 26/12/2008 8:48 AM This is a rollercoaster ride that’s for sure. Sometime in the very near future I will say those words to my love. If I only had Archie here he could tell me what track it is. She loved taking Archie to see James Blunt. Her liver is failing, she is sleeping but comfortable and not in pain I can’t tell as her forehead is relaxed. She did not like her forehead fur-row joking she’d try Botox one day. No need Hun you are as beautiful as the day I married you. Two years of marraige may not seem long but gee we packed in 10 years of life in there. Please look out for one another as Bunny would say, “Bless your cotton socks” I know most of you are wearing thongs today but you get the idea.

We have a lot of hope for Bedside Boy and Sleeping B they have a history and a future. We did hear some groaning. What was happening? I’ll never tell xoxo Gossip Girl Mirror mirror By Sean on 25/12/2008 11:25 AM Shrek, Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie were chatting over lunch. Shrek said, “I’ve always I was the strongest man in the world, but how can I be sure?” Brad said, “I’m pretty sure I am the sexiest man in the world but I have never confirmed it.” Angelina said, “I’ve been told I am the most gorgeous women of them all but sometimes I wonder.” They decided to visit the magic mirror to ally their concerns once and for all. Shrek asked the mirror he sighed with relief which confirmed he was the strongest. Happy to hear Shrek’s news Brad and Angelina stepped up to the mirror to ask themselves. Brad & Angelina came back and asked Shrek the following, “Who the f*&k are Michelle & Sean Callanan?” Merry Christmas everyone Sean & Bunny All I want for Christmas is you By Sean on 24/12/2008 9:14 AM Thanks to Lish & Cel for tag teaming the night shift much appreciated. It is that kind of support that is helping me each and every day. We all know why Bunny has so many friends and supporters she is the most giving and generous spirit I have ever known, Auntie Kath you are a close second (thanks for the regular blank texts by the way always happy to call you back). Not much medical news today trying to reduce the bruising but it will take time. To all have great Xmas and raise your glasses to my beautiful wife when you crack open the champers, I’m sure you will. Cheers and Ho Ho Ho Sean

Loving the good news though please keep it coming!! Submitted By: Alyce & Ryan Regina Radcliffe 22/12/2008 5:05:43 PM The GUESS Influence.... Hi Bunny, Its been awhile since I posted but I have been reading everyday and twitter is my friend. Just had to let you know that I bought my second GUESS bag at the GUESS shop in Chaddie. It’s the latest range that came out last Friday. It’s black and I know you say to always have a matching purse but it didn’t come with one, so I chose a brilliant red one instead. Looks great. They also have some brilliant shoes, need to wait for the sales though, spent way too much on Saturday. I do believe that may be your influence at work. Heehee. Love you Bun, take care. Reggie. Submitted By: Regina Radcliffe Kate Connelly 22/12/2008 2:42:38 PM Hi Michelle and Sean - I just called to say I love you (apolo-gies to the great Stevie Wonder). Like a bridge over troubled waters (apologies to Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel) Alan and I will be there to do what we can for both of you. And now for my joke of the day. Why did the man cross a chick-en with an octopus?. So everyone in his family could have a leg each. xoxoxo Kate Submitted By: Kate Connelly Regina Radcliffe 22/12/2008 2:40:22 PM The GUESS Influence....

I almost had to break out the happy pants and MC Ham-mer. I settled for some Cyndi Lauper instead. My kids were suitably mortified. Missed you at work this week Bun, we had to do compliance training! I managed to fail even after cheating. I think Alan might be looking for a new PA (that’s Project Administrator, NOT Personal Assistant!) :) Lots of love and good wishes, m. xx Submitted By: Mandi Matt and Bridge 22/12/2008 12:20:28 AM Internet Rumour Bun, great to see you in good spirits yester-day keep fighting and keep the good news coming. And just to clarify Sean’s blog - we are not pregnant. Submitted By: Matt and Bridge Judith 21/12/2008 8:38:21 PM Today is check-up day although we are in regular touch with Libby and John.

She took a tumble on the car park Thursday week ago and is bruised and very sore. They are trying to reduce the fluid in it to help her out. Her bloods and liver continue to improve she is still having daily platelet transfusions (apparently it takes 4 donors to fill one bag so no excuses people give blood if you can). As she hasn’t been eating too much her bloods are a little low in protein she is going to have some-thing that sounded like BMXing not sure if she can handle at bike at the moment. Other than that she is sleeping and drinking well which I guess a lot of you are doing with all the Xmas parties on. Ttyl Sean PS apologies to Matt & Bridget I did realize late last night I left that one hanging out there. Funny girl Dec 22 Written by: Sean 22/12/2008 11:13 AM Thanks for all the musical themed posts of support I know today’s is stretching the rules a little but I couldn’t think of a better title to describe yesterday. Bunny loves her Babs and yesterday she could have filled her shoes in a Vegas show. Sure the mouthwash gave her a pick me up but it was vintage Bunny here are the highlights... Nurse asks where she wants the icepack her reply “Where do you reckon? Up my a&$!” Upon seeing Matt & Bridget “Are you pregnant again? Bless ya” Trying set Mark up on a date, watch out mate she’s on a mission t here. Seeing Archer & Julia playing with the water fountain from her window. Seeing a beautiful video made by Darcy girl and then seeing her blow kisses from the window. And announcing the Stacey on Eastenders is a slapper and she makes her sick so please don’t mention her. Her bloods and liver function have improved for the second day in a row. Well done Babe keep this up and I will bust out my Cotton Eye Joe dance in Bourke St Mall for everyone’s amusement. If she keeps this up she may be home before the new year. Cheers Sean

Big hugs, Mairs xox Here comes an absolute doozy in keeping with the musical theme eg:Mary Poppins Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on feet.

Just checking in.. Not much to report here.. Camryn is FINEALLY walking!!!! She is one very lazy bubby and to keep her quiet we feed her.. Loves her food... Jake always torments her and Im thinking she is going to be a little bit rough around the edges.. She has Jake in headlocks and pulls his hair when he is getting rough with her. What am I in for!! Jake is 3 on christmas day can ou believe. He is loving Sanata and cant wait... Kisses and hugs to you and Sean and Seeyou soon Love Tim and Cath Submitted By: Cath and Tim Gotta get up By Sean on 21/12/2008 11:13 AM From UK group from the 90s Black Box The good news is that Bun’s blood test came back this morning with her white blood cells slightly up which is the best news we’ve had for a couple of days. Still some work to do but it is a small step in the right direction. Her mouth and throat are still pretty sore so they have ordered a cocaine mouthwash which will deaden the mouth & throat. I don’t know if this means Richmond fans will be allowed to visit as everyone is concerned about Ben’s circle of influence check with Terry Wallace (again sorry about that but that one was like T-ball hard to pass up, gee I hope Didak stays in for NYE). Anyway I’ll finish with the last line from Black Box. And time won’t take my love away. Sean Were all in this together By Sean on 21/12/2008 8:40 AM You may have noticed the musi-cal theme to my blog titles, even though I have the new iPhone I haven’t used the iPod that much. These tunes seemed to popping into my head at the moment. FYI I am thinking of the Ben Lee song not the High School Musical ver-sion but whatever floats your boat. Speaking to Lish yesterday reminded me of one of Bunny’s face questions which I’m sure the crew at Medibank know well, “What did you have for dinner?” with followup methods of cooking techniques and of course dessert. It’s a Bunton thing but dessert is a must, they do all love their dessert. Little did I know that these ques-tions helped Bun and in turn Lish plan their family meals. I guess she should come with a privacy policy, but those who know her know that with Bun it is all out there nothing is sacred. So for the sake of full disclosure I had lasagne for dinner last night which was beautiful, thanks Meg. Cheers Sean Every breath you take By Sean on 20/12/2008 5:17 PM Spent most of today simply watching Bun sleeping. She seems more comfortable today the morphine drip is having the desired effect, unfortunately her blood counts have not bounced back as we’d hoped. We hope that there is a change for the positive overnight to see her immune system make a recovery so she has ammunition to fight this with. Thanks for all the messages, texts & phone calls. I pass them on when Bun wakes up and asks for a Big M or icypole. She is in great hands and they are looking after the both of us well. I know Margaret from the visitors waiting room will wonder on Monday what happened to her bowl of Clinkers? What can I say I keep getting pink ones I have to go back until I get a green one :) Cheers Sean
  10. 10. Lish & Shane 20/12/2008 9:02:30 PM Sean Just to follow on from Dan’s message, Shane and I are in full agreeance and support of your comments, Dan. Sean, your strength & courage are amazing, your humour helps to ease, you are Bun’s rock. To see her reaction yesterday when you came into the room was something that we’ll never forget. Your love for each other is one of the most beautiful things we’ve witnessed. And to follow in your theme of songs, as Dan said (and in the words of Grinspoon) - You’re a hard act to follow.....and what’s the next line? Such a fine looking fellow - OK we’ll give u that one too! You two are a great team...keep punching xoxo Submitted By: Lish & Shane Paula Mason 20/12/2008 9:02:22 PM Hey Bun, Not much to report having a bit of a lazy weekend.

Love Joch & Katherine Submitted By: Joch & Katherine Dan 20/12/2008 4:32:23 PM Sean, it was good to catch up with you yesterday and on reflection it made me think about showing courage and and mental toughness. I’m not real good with words but see if you understand what i mean.When i think of these things gernerally i think of football players for example, Jonathon Brown running back with the flight of the ball with the full forward and fullback coming the other way but he keeps his eyes on it and takes the mark, thats courage. Or the poor bugger who had to stand in the spot in front of plugger, thats courage. Rob Harvey and Shane Crawford who man-age to go through the pain barrier time and time again to make the next contest. You are showing all these qualities plus much more, you are one tough bugger. You set a very high standard for us to follow, and keep up the good work. Pass on our love Bunny.

Much like sleeping on a plane without the customs checks and beggars at the airport when you wake up. Anyway enough about me nothing a coffee followed by a red bull can’t fix. Bunny’s pain and nausea is fluc-tuating in equal amounts the staff here are doing a great job to level things out. Had another blood test this morning hoping they come back with better numbers than Matty Hayden this time. Until that happens she’ll be in here for a bit longer. She may be home for Xmas if we see enough improvement so her immune system can handle the outside world. Thanks for all the support and mes-sages keep them coming in. Bunny knows there is a lot of support out there to all of you she says “Bless ya”. Cheers xoxo Gossip Girl I mean Sean Can’t wait to be home to watch crap TV with my girl Make that a weekend stay By Sean on 19/12/2008 8:27 AM Just finished speaking with our on-cologist, unfortunately she won’t be coming home just yet. Her platelets and white blood cell counts are very low and she needs to more blood and monitoring. She is in very capable hands and they are doing everything they can to keep her as comfortable as possible. I know everyone feels for Bunny at the minute and would love to visit but the doctors want the visitors to be kept at a minimum as she in under risk of infection. I will pass ok messages and love to her from you all. Please know she may be fighting outside her weight class but she is punching like crazy thanks for being in our corner. Thanks Sean Overnight stay at Epworth Dec 19 Written by: Sean 19/12/2008 7:30 AM Bunny spent the night at Epworth as they wanted to keep an eye on her and give her blood a boost. Platelets too low to have chemo and other blood counts done. She has has a platelet transfusion and 4 bags of blood. She wants to come home which is a good sign, last night she was too exhausted to care. For those wanting to help can you please find some time to give blood? Michelle has the most com-mon blood type O+ (38% of world population according to Google) the blood bank always needs more especially over the holidays. Waiting on results and to see the doctors ttyl. (That’s Internet short-hand Mum Talk To You Later, Jade can explain it) Cheers Sean

Bun isn’t feeling the greatest today, still unsteady on her feet and a bit nauseaus. We are waiting for an ambulance to take her into the Ep-worth, nothing major just a more comfortable ride for Michelle. I’ll let you all know how we go later in the day. Cheers Sean Slept better coffee still mandatory Dec 17 Written by: Sean 17/12/2008 10:03 AM Last night was a lot better as we got a script filled yesterday for more pain killers and it definitely helped through the night. It was a 2 icypole night but there wasn’t dis-tressed as much as previous nights. Bunny is sleeping soundly right now after taking more pills this morning than Ben Cousins on a bender (sorry Tiger fans couldn’t resist). Today has nothing planned, she is most happy in her bedroom with no distractions (not even the TV which is rare for her as Edey knows). Tomorrow we hard back into the Epworth for another round of IV chemo and to check in with all the doctors, nurses, social worker, dieti-cians and probably a few more. She is eating enough even if it is only watermelon (due to mouth ulcers) but she has fallen in love with Banana Big Ms which is great according to the dietician. Anyway gotta go trying to build another website for work this one has been a great playground to test ideas out on. Thanks for all the calls, texts and messages. Yes I am doing fine, keeping on top of things and distracting myself researching work stuff in my Harry Potter study (for those who don’t know I have my PCs setup under the stairs). Can’t finish without congratulat-ing Jade and Rhys on their terrific reports from school, well done you should be very proud of yourselves I know Bunny & I are. Cheers Sean PS Get well soon Jeanne, you have been a great support to Bunny & I. Here’s to a speed recovery. Sleep optional, Coffee mandatory Dec 16 Written by: Sean 16/12/2008 11:16 AM Been a battle last few days to try a get the right medicine to manage Bun’s pain and allow her to sleep comfortably. I think (hope) we have it right now, in close contact with the Epworth and our oncologist who have been a great help. The nights have been tough but the early morning icypoles seem to help. I am very thankful for our expresso machine though it has got a punishing, I can’t remember how I functioned in the morning before the age of 25 (the pre-coffee years). Thankfully working at the

Daisy says to Dolly, ‘I was artificially inseminated this morning.’ ‘I don’t believe you, says Dolly. It’s true, no bull! exclaims Daisy. ..... DejaMoo: the feeling that you’ve heard this bull before. ...and just to keep you rolling on the floor with laughter....Two fish swim into a concrete wall.

Cheers Sean Thanks to all but worth repeating Dec 14 Written by: Sean 14/12/2008 1:21 PM A big thanks to everyone who is posting their support as the mes-sages keep coming in here’s a few I wanted to repeat here. From Alan (Michelle’s bossmen-tor friendsupporter) “I thought it was time to tell on Michelle, just to remind people who may not know, exactly how strong she really is. Sean I was fortunate to interview Michelle some 7 years ago for a job. While we were very impressed with her and had already decided to give her the position it was only after I found out she had experienced her car being run into and written off straight after the interview and he plight leading into the interview (read Ansett) that I had a glimpse into how much she will fight for what she what. It was later when she was determined that you were the right person for her that I really saw her determination and fight for what she felt was correct that you would appreciate there was no alternative for you. You where both destined for each other, and the last few week have confirmed it, Sean you have my utmost appreciation of your strength and determination to support Bunny. I have seen her never turn away from a challenge and win, I can only repeat I have seen her never turn away from a challenge and win, I can only repeat what I said to you on Friday, if any one is going to beat this then Michelle is the person to do it. As I suspect you know, your support is key to this, I can only offer the support for both of you from the side and that of where she works, if there is anything we can do let me know, I will ensure it happens.” Thanks to Alan and Michelle’s work colleagues for your support it is very much appreciated. Michelle is looking forward to a return to work, who else is going to boss you all around in her no-nonsense manner? From Mairs (my Aunty) “Hi guys,its Mairs calling. I am blown away by what you have both been going through - together and separately. I hope you can feel the wall of love and support surround-ing you and hoping for the best possible outcome. You have already shown your family and friends the remarkable depths of your endurance and perserverance in the journey so far and no doubt this will continue in the battle ahead. When I call you both to mind the first image that comes is the joy you eminated on your wedding day. We all agreed we had never seen a groom with such a broard and permanent grin, and who will ever forget your briliant response Bunny, when asked by the celebrant

They run off into the bushes and a rustling noise is heard.

Thanks to my driver David for helping me out today, no sleep and driving do not mix. I can feel the relief in Michelle now back in our own bed (BIE Best Investment Ever!). She isn’t up for much talking just sleeping but I know as she sleeps in our bed I know she feels a little like this... Ready for the fight of our lives By Sean on 12/12/2008 7:41 AM Sleep seems to be optional for the both of us at the moment. Very tired but getting our strength back to put up a big fight. Got the bone marrow results back and unfortunately the cancer has moved in more than expected. The plan and treatment course remains the same as we need to get this damn thing under control first before we can try different treat-ments. We are both very happy that the team of doctors and nurses are working hard behind the scenes to find whatever edge we can. Michelle is a tough and stubborn women and I love her for it we are going to put all our energy into this fight. There has to be someone defy and baffle medical opinion so medical breakthroughs can happen (here’s hoping you see Bunny’s story on House one day). Thanks for the support it is appreciated and needed. Sean A hectic day at Epworth By Sean on 11/12/2008 3:29 PM It has been a busy day & Bunny has been exceptional. She got thru a bone marrow biopsy with no problems we are waiting on the results. She now has a pick line to give her all the chemo so less needles which Bun is happy about. I am waiting at the Mountain View for an order of chips for Bunny so that’s a good sign that her appetite is coming back a little. All things being equal she will be home tomorrow. Bun says thanks to everyone. Cheers Sean Heading into hospital... Dec 10 Written by: Sean 10/12/2008 6:49 PM We have seen all the doctors we can in the past week. We (I say we but I really mean Bun) had more tests for blood and a CT scan of her brain. The good news is that her brain scan came back clear (from cancer not of a brain!), however there is some concern from her blood tests. More tests are to be done at the Ep-worth specifically a bone marrow biopsy to confirm if the cancer is in the bone marrow which would help explain the aches and pains Bunny has had over the past 4-6 weeks. So it looks like she will start some form of chemo tomorrow most likely with a hospital stay to get the cancer under control so her blood results improve. Bunny wishes she could post herself but she is so “knackered” (her words not mine) but she does want me to pass on

First of all thanks to Chris Bourke, Seamus Ryan and Norm for install-ing our new split system air con-ditioning it took most of Saturday thru the rain and heat but Bunny is now more comfortable even if I am freezing my nuts off ! It was a long day for Bun but the Ivanhoe crew with help from Orv gave her some comfort while the boys were working away. I know Bunny intends to make a blog post herself but she isn’t up to it at the minute. The pain killers and other mess have her a little disoriented for the time being she is happiest when sleeping. Again thanks for the messages and support. Cheers Sean PS In cool (techy) news I am writ-ing the post from my iPhone.
