In a few hours my family and I will climb on an aeroplane and depart for three weeks on sunnier shores. We fly to Durban, South Africa, to stay with my husband’s parents, and will also have a brief few days in Cape Town where I will spend a little time with my own family. I will have very limited access to the internet while I am gone, so I am unlikely to be blogging, or reading any posts, until January.
I am unfortunately still in very poor health, as the intensity of my headache began to increase again last Friday, and had flattened me again by Saturday. I have an arsenal of drugs to help me survive the 25 hours of travelling ahead. I am quite simply terrified by the prospect, but keep reminding myself that pain can, and will, be endured.
In case I don’t post again before then, I would like to wish all of you wonderful people a very merry Christmas, however and wherever you may be celebrating. I can’t thank you enough for all the support and companionship over the past months; both have been truly invaluable.
