Never give up on you're dreams

Hi all. I just want to give everyone with lung problems and on oxygen a little hope.... I'm posting this from the very sunny Maldives, sitting in the shade with a cool glass of water... Anyway, just want to say even though I'm on oxygen and in a wheel chair, with the help of Virgin holidays, my local hospital, Etihad airways and GP and a very wonderful partner I've managed to fulfil a life long dream.... so, my advise to everyone is " never give up on you're dreams dispite what the world throw at you".

Oh lucky you, we have been to the Maldives three times now such beautiful islands. The last time was seven years ago and it was my hubbies retirement present and before I became poorly. I often sit and try to recreate the feeling of peacefulness and calm I felt there. Did not think it would be possible to ever go back but you never know.

Enjoy your holiday, store as many menories up as you can and come back refreshed.

Hi all. I'm really shocked with the kind wishes everyone is sending. This place is wonderful and the staff can't do enough for me. I've tried to upload a picture but the wifi isn't the best. I never thought I would be well enough to come or have the back up support from everyone, but I did, and I'm one very lucky person.... please, never let you're health put you off for flling you're dreams.

am very envious but very happy for you pleased you made your dream think the most important item you listed was your wonderful partner - I am alone and know the only way I could do something like you have is to have not just a partner but a wonderful one - good luck to both of you - have a super time xxx
