How do you say thank you to so many people for all their support and kind words, individually it would take me forever and so i turn to my blog to tell you all how much i appreciate it.
Unexpected events on the 31st Ocober 2013 have temporarily put this fish out of the water (its definitely not through choice!). A car accident totalled my car and injured myself and my passenger Larissa. It was not how we saw our day panning out, one minute driving along quite happily then next surrounded by the emergency services and in dire need of their help.
Cut out of the car (it doesn't look good as a soft top!) and air lifted to James Cooke hospital, and the super fast treatment and subsequent after-care mean that i and Larissa are here to tell the tale (not that we plan to tell any tales) but also to say thank you to you all for the amazing messages on Facebook, text and inbox and email that have been sent.
At times they were coming in faster than i could read them (the drugs did not help the eyesight either). The humour made me giggle and really lifted my spirits and helped me retain my humour and for that i am eternally grateful. The kindness of the words are truly felt and show just how completely amazing my family, friends and the world of swimming (be it in a pool, lake, river or ocean) are. You are all amazing people and i can not express fully or in its entirety how much your support and messages have meant to me.
Apparently part of my recovery is swimming....even the doctors are fab on that point, so expect to see me back in the water as soon as i can get to it. The fish will wet her gills as soon as she can xx
