New Year 2010
After a tragic new year`s eve in 2007 were we watched our beloved 10 yr old Daniel fall asleep forever I was dreading this years new year`s eve. Simon was due to attend The Queen Elizabeth in Birmingham for the results of his recent tests. These results were between life and death for Simon.
As we drove memories of that day in 2007 flooded back to me was I going to live through another tragic new year.
Reaching the hospital we sat waiting for the doctor. Walking in we noticed no other staff around just the consultant. Breathing heavily we sat and listened a the doctor began to speak.
Simon has a rare tumor 5 people diagnosed in 100,00. 2% out of every hundred people. We learnt it not an aggressive cancer but a slowly growing one. If Simon had the one that is most popular pancreatic cancer tumor like Patrick Sawzy then his life would have been over due to the size of the tumor it would have been in operable. He would have died eventually.
But due the the type of cancer Simon has they are going to operate and hopefully remove it all. It is major surgery but we are all praying he will recover.
It is a big relief now both Simon and I can look forward to our future which will be full of happiness. We both wish we had meet years ago, so we have got a lot of catching up to do to make up for all the lost years we both have spent unhappy.
Watch this space guys.
On returning home New Years Eve Simon and I went out for a romantic meal together to celebrate the good news. Thank you Scott for making that happen. Later we came back home to pick up Aaron before heading to the Green to meet up with friends. We spent the evening playing darts, with the kids on the wii and chatting away. It was good fun. Everyone was so please at our good news.
We came back before midnight to the Penybont Inn but the pub was very packed, I wasn't happy with Aaron being in there, so we headed back to the Green.
It was here we saw the clock strike midnight bringing in the year 2011. We all had party poppers to let off at midnight. Watching Big Ben strike midnight on the big screen.
After saying our Happy New Years and receiving them we headed home for bed all fairly shattered but for once a smile on New Years Eve.
Simon has a tough time ahead but I will be by his side throughout and I am sure he will get through this to live a happy life and live it to the full like I do.
New Years day was time to relax, we took the dogs for a walk to the woods. Here we collected some sticks for our open fire. We spent the rest of the day chilling out watching TV in each others arms.
I am looking forward to 2011 after Simon has had his operation and he is on the road to recovery. The rest of the year is going to be fun fun and more fun roll on 2011. A life changing year for us all.
