So today has been an adventure and a half, today I bought (Daddy bought me) a wheelchair and walker. So my Aunty M has helped me name my walker ‘Dylan’ after Bob Dylan whose real name is ‘Robert Allen Zimmerman’ so my new Zimmer frame (walker) is rightly named I think. Also my wheelchair has been named by my Mummy, he is called Chorlton (after the T.V show Chorlton and the Wheelies). It was an incredibly hard decision to make but one I needed to. I am by no means saying that I will have these new characters in my life permanently but for now they are necessities. I feel like I have missed out so much in the past year because of my mobility problems so this should free me up a little. Also I am eager to do ever thing in my power to limit the amount of permanent damage Monster can do.
The Man and I spoke to his Dad on Skype earlier today and I am really looking forward to going out to Austria to see him and his wife. It is exciting to think that the Man is coming with me to America to meet the family that side and to Scotland to meet the rest. I am excited to have him in my life and this is a novelty for me because I didn’t think I would let someone in again...but I was wrong! It has been a really bizarre experience since we met because he has had his own trials and tribulations and now with me being sick, I think we are going through it together. I must confuse that he is very important in my life and I am so so so happy that he is sharing my life. Oh and he doesn’t get jealous with me spending so much time with Geraldine, Sonny and now Dylan and Chorlton. I am a lucky girl.
I have had a lovely evening with my Mum, Dad, Aunty M, Grampy and Nanny. We have had a lovely roast dinner and we’re now watching some Sunday night telly. The Man took me out earlier in Chorlton and it was the first time I have been out of the house without being in serious amounts of pain. It is lovely to be able to leave the house without being in so much pain that it becomes so difficult to enjoy the experience. The Man is so amazingly patient with all of this and didn’t mind taking me about in Chorlton.
Right I am going to sign off now because the Man has to leave soon and I don’t want him too. So I am going for a cuddle xxxxx
