Well I'm back from my second holiday.  Having had to cancel holidays earlier this year while I was having chemo and rads I decided to make up for it with trips to Italy and then Greece.  I've had a great time. 
In an effort to avoid getting lymphoedema I was very careful to take great care of my 'bad' arm having been advised to use high factor sun cream, to use a good insect repellant, not to lift heavy luggage, etc.  I did all of those things and everything was fine until the last day of the holiday when my arm was attacked by a parrot !!  It felt quite painful at the time but it didn't draw blood so no panic and my arm is fine.
Best wishes everyone

Gee Anthi, I am green with envy. Those are two countries I always wanted to visit and see all the ancient ruins. I hope you had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute. I was attacked by a parrot in a pet shop. It was out in the store, so I put out my arm and it hopped on. I thought it was just great getting to hold this beautiful bird until it decided to try me for dinner. It did break the skin and even worse hurt like the devil. Needless to say I got that little devil back on his perch in a hurry. Those beaks are sharp!!!!

Take care. Hugs MK
