The Final Furlong

February 8, 2010

13th Jul 2009

The day started off well (for a Monday!!!) – an email from some friends inviting us to spend a day at Wolverhampton Race Course.

Anita used to work with horses in her youth and had always retained an interest in them. The date of the proposed meet was also a few days before her birthday so It would be a nice birthday treat for her.

Then we went to the hospital and all future plans were off !!!

Having reviewed her latest X-rays and scans, consultant’s opinion is she has just days – possibly weeks but not months – left now to live and strongly advised making any arrangements, see any friends/relatives etc in next few days before it is too late.

We stopped for a drink on the way home.

      She was always a ‘fighter’ !!!

      [the number of times I had to go to work pretending I’d ‘walked into a door’ 🙄 ] 😉

    Doctors obviously don’t know everything.

    New avatar, I see. Hubby has told me about them. You must be daring in today’s politically correct world!
