Soon after posting all my bad news, things began to change.
This week, we have people coming to put piped gas into the house (we will have heat and hot water on demand!). There are people on our roof, fixing the insulation and other problems and getting ready for my roof garden plans. We have people coming to fix the broken pipes.
My house is a mess, and will be for a while but the future looks good. I will be posting lightly for a few days because of the “works” but I am optimistic and looking forward to real change.
My mum is doing really well. For those who have been following, her liver is not deteriorating at the rate they originally thought. In fact, she’s been told that a transplant is a long way off, in the future. We don’t know what that means in real terms but it’s certainly not this year or next. I can’t tell you how relieved I am.
Her arm is healing well (from the fall from the horse) and I spoke to her a few days ago and she sounds really happy and positive.
Thank you to all of you who are sending thoughts, vibes, prayers, words or whatever you are sending.
