My lovely niece, who is in pallative care, has been chosen to carry the Olympic Torch through Swansea in May. I'm so proud I'm fit to burst. She's a bit of nutter in her electric wheelchair, I hope you doesn't take out any innocent spectators on the way.
The other great news that her mother booked her 18th birthday party. I have to be honest this is a miracle as we didn't expect her to live this long. A couple of years ago she died on a weekly basis and although the doctors can't actually say why she is so ill they have tried all sorts of treatments. The latest one seems to be helping, although it won't save her life it does seem to be prolonging it. She really is an amazing young woman who is so positive, despite her pain scale being at 8 - 9 every day. Amy plans her life as though she is going to live a normal life. In her room is a plaque that says, "don't count the days, make the days count". I think this is something we should all live by.
Well done Amy Claire. :bounce:
