A Note From Marie

To my fellow bloggers I am sending my first bulletin regarding my situation, health-wise.

I deeply appreciate the good wishes you have sent me and it is touching to know I'm not forgotten. I have had a very illness-free life so it was a surprise when I had a life-threatening medical emergency necessitating surgery followed by two months in hospital and another 4-5 months under the care of a hospital-in-the-home service. I am improving from day to day. I am pleased to report that I have regained strength in walking (now without aids) and I am becoming more independent and almost well enough to cope with living alone.

My daughter saved my life in so many ways. She refused to give up on me and she nagged and bullied (in the nicest possible way)and persuaded me to believe the fight was worth fighting. She lives in the same street only a minute or two away if help is needed.

My problems melt into insignificance with the pandemic now affecting the lives of every person living on the planet. I wish you all a safe journey through the mayhem of life changing rules and the attack on the economy.

A big thank you to all of you for your thoughtfulness and good wishes.
