Pause

4

Software updates often lead to small problems , which are soon fixed . I am sure that you can spot the issue . The speech therapist asked the nurse what I was still eating . Breakfast – Weetabix and prunes . The speech therapist heard prawns , and said that they are good if cut up small . I was 50 on June 27th , we had a morning tea with the residents and staff ( thanks for the cake and balloons ). Simon came over from Cambridge , my room filled with family and friends , including Valentina’s classmate , Sara , visiting from Okinawa . Steve disappeared , then returned with the keyboard . Flowers , balloons , cards , music – great fun . A visit to Queen’s Square , some time with the eye gaze people , a while in Gadebridge Park with Woody and Sarah . Time for a pause in blog writing . Thank you for making the birthday great and spontaneous ! Thanks for my card and drawing , Valentina and Sebastian . And your modelling , Sebastian .

One thought to “Pause”

  1. I don’t know how to say “happy birthday” when it should be so much happier. I love your thoughts, and hope you continue your amazing insights and braveness as you face the unknown ahead. I shouldn’t add myself to the list of people who have said you are an inspiration – but you truly are. All is well here. Next week we will join Jim for his annual family get-together at Folley Beach, SC. He and Diane are celebrating their 50th anniversary there – 5 months early. Jeff and Jill will visit us for the first time ever this Friday. They’re also going to stay at Folley Beach. Love, Sue and Gene
