Hello there, and THANK YOU! Never before have the lyrics of a song had more meaning, "All you need is love", and I have been overwhelmed by your support, kindness and love that is so evident in all your comments that I needed to write and tell you. I have read them all, and they have truly inspired me and lifted my spirits. Again, thank you.
Talking of spirits being lifted, Sam had his surgery yesterday and came home today, and I am delighted to tell you that everything has gone incredibly well. In Sam's own words, he thinks it's "110 per cent improved" :) Best thing of all is that once it's healed and he has a new prosthesis made to fit his new shape, he should be walking pain free! Nearly four years on from his accident that would just be wonderful :)
He's got a month or so before he can walk again, and what with my treatment spreading over seven or so months, we've decided that next year will be our year for a fab holiday – Fiji beckons But then so do many of our beach bits here in the good old UK. No sunbathing allowed for me this year sadly, so I may have to invest in a large hat, linen clothes and a 'shade bathe' a la Alison Young :) I have already pre ordered much Beau Bronz!!!
I'm working with Breast Cancer Care so that we can get the forum up and running, so I can hopefully keep in touch with you there, but once again your kinds words, thoughts and prayers mean so much, and I am really grateful to you for taking the time out to think of me.
I'll leave you with Helen's words 'cos I think they will work for all of us: "Don't wait for the storm to pass, learn to dance in the rain…" I'm going to keep on dancing…
My love to you, Ali xxx
