HI Concerned Wife
Thank you for the wishes, you humble me because I did so little, other than give out advice that ultimately was faceless and nameless and could not be of more help! But your story is tremendously touching, and to have come back often to give the updates on Des' progress and your state of mind has been very inspiring.
I am delighted to hear that things are going well. I can imagine that it must be very difficult, but the lessons you have learned already indicate that even something so apparently terrible serves a higher purpose, not only for you, but for those you touch and inspire. I encourage you to keep learning, to keep smiling and joking about it - not to trivialise it, of course, but to inspire others, because one can only really see people's true colours in times of adversity - everyone can be happy when things are going well, but to remain positive, to keep your head up in times of sadness, that's the mark of true character.
And both you and your husband have true character.
Thank you once again, and good luck over the Christmas and New Year period! Continue to inspire everyone, and teach people how to face adversity!
