Amazing

A month ago, Natasha was in hospital in Birmingham, waiting to hear if a life saving liver was viable. It was, she's at home. Certainly not fully recovered, but absolutely on the way. Give thanks for the deceased and what their family have courageously given up. Thanks for the surgeons, nurses and technology. Thanks overall for the ability to do such a massive thing. It really is amazing. I was lucky enough to be a bridesmaid at her wedding in May. Despite spending a huge amount of time, effort and money on personal training, she looked pregnant, and that was solely her liver, and that's not fair. She looked stunning anyway, the dress was gorgeous.

Also a month ago, Sandra, hit by a car on her bike, in a body brace, wondering what might happen. She's out of that brace and freely moving. Slowly but surely.

Kate, on the telly beating The Chaser.

Me, after having my heart ripped out of my chest, numerous times, still getting dressed up and going out there, with belief. Not much courage if I am honest, but belief. Everything I go to, is for me, a tiny victory. Every friend who supports me is a massive victory, and that's what keeps me going. Those of you who think I am supremely confident and outgoing, think on.

So if you can do anything for anybody, no matter how small, even a little like on FB, please do that. Make people believe they are loved and appreciated. You may not get another chance. They may not either.

In fact, if you are able to do anything, for anybody, with or without fanfare, do that too.

I am attempting yet again, to stop smoking after this weekend. I have failed a few times. If you have some time to send me some supportive messages, that would be great.

I have cried so much this week that my lashes only lasted 4 days instead of 2 weeks. My sleep has been dire. I remain as resilient and as upbeat as I possibly can. But I am struggling. I have no doubt that 50+ people will read this and virtually nobody will be bothered. Such is the human race.

Anybody who made the effort for me this week, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

proud of you.x

life is tough, and old age is not for sissies as the great Bette says.

I am approaching 4 years post my collapse, I am so grateful for the support my friends gave me. By my initial diagnosis I would be dying about now.
Instead, I am loads better and enjoying life, even if I am very fatigued and often in pain.

looking forward to another mini holibob with you next year!
