Small sign of life and BIG THANK YOU!

I don’t know why patients are called patients, because if there’s one thing I’m not then it’s patient. It was only a week ago that I thought I’d kick the bucket, and here I am, tapping my fingers impatiently and cursing the universe for “slow” progress of healing.

Which is idiotic. Some things take their time, and getting your lungs to work again is one of them. For the first time in my life, my body refuses to obey my stubborness, and that’s a new experience for me – not being able to force myself to do something. I’m currently trying to find the right balance between “resting yet stay active” (thanks, doc, for being so specific) and “Wheee! I can breathe again! Woooork!” – those of you who know me for a while will be aware how hard that is for me.

This little trick my body played on me was definitely one of the most scary things I’ve ever experienced in my life. I don’t want to experience it again, uhhh no. But yes, I’m feeling better. I could stop with the injections and am now on blood-thinners for another couple of months. We’re not talking “doing the Berlin marathon” kind-of-better, but then I’ve never participated in the Berlin marathon, so it doesn’t really matter, I guess.

What I do want to do right now, though, is to thank all of you. For your well-wishes, for your prayers, for your blessings, kind words, support, mails, letters, cards, drawings, pictures, stories and many, many pictures of Jack Davenport. And other things featuring Jack Davenport. I didn’t feel silly at all when squeeing like a teenager every time one of you peeped up to say hello – the simple fact that somebody out there thought of me and cared was extremely touching and overwhelming.

When you’re alone at home, in pain and you get paranoid listening to your own body in the deep of the night, listening to some lovely git reading “Jack and the Beanstalk” can make a world of a difference. I don’t care if that sounds silly. Thanks so much to those who sent me that link. You have no idea how much this helped me.

My very special thanks go to who came to visit and look after me and the cats. I really have no words to say how much this meant to me. But I hope she knows. 🙂

I wish I could give each of you out there a hug. As I can’t, I’d just like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and generosity. You’ve proven once again that this is not “only the internet” – it’s part of our lives, and life, as I’ve just been reminded again, can be over far too quickly. We should appreciate it more; I, for one, will do so.

Thank you.

Oh hell – I sound like a politician on an election tour. To sum it up: love you lots! Muchas smooches! And I’ll be back, sooner rather than later.
