As we were born within a couple of days of each other, this is our birthday week. A time of mixed emotions, spent them quietly together, it was this time last year when we first noticed how breathless he was getting, so right at the start of this journey.
Overwhelming emotion is glad to both be here and with him felling so well, making the most of this time feels so important. It is a time we didn’t think we would have following the initial diagnosis.
People sometimes play that game, where they say what would you do if you thought you had three months to live- they list all the places they want to visit, or daredevil things they would do, money they would spend. In fact all we have wanted to do is be as normal as possible and be with family. So that is what we have done this week – enjoyed being together.
Long may it last
