You are the best.

I just want to start this post by saying a big thank you for all the Christmas and birthday cards, messages etc.  I have no idea what I have done to deserve such amazing friends but I am truly grateful.  I also want to apologies if I have not answered a message or sent a thank you card yet but this leads me to the second part of the reason for this post…..  When I started this blog I wanted to give a true description of what it feels like to be dealing with this illness and I have come to discover that it is far from the negative path that I thought it would be as there have been plenty of moment of humour and light during this journey.   However at the moment I appear to be really struggling to find these moments.  I don’t know if it is just everything suddenly catching up on me, my transplant looming on the horizon then being postponed,  or just because I am a bit run down but this last month or so has been such hard work.  I am struggling really hard with exhaustion at the moment, the kind that no sleep seems to sort, and my energy levels are low.  I was told last week that they have a possible new donor and have set the hospital intake date for the 4th but I did not manage to feel anything, either excitement or fear, about that and maybe that is a good thing – who knows?  I am however worried that if I feel this tired now how am I going to feel during and after the transplant?????  Anyway no matter how I am feeling it is onward and upward, I have to get my head in the game for the 4th.  I am in the middle of all my tests at the moment and my line goes back in on Wednesday so no more trips North after that.  However I just want to say thanks again, you are a fantastic bunch of people and I really do appreciate how lucky I am to know you xxxx

    Hi Jade I haven’t seen any posts saying otherwise so I’m assuming your operation is still going ahead as planned on the 4th which is tomorrow, and to say we are praying for you sister and we’ll hear from you when you are well enough to post

    Yours in Christ
