I may have not posted for awhile but reading comments on here and feeling like I have a lovely group of friends. I do not know what gone on with the group but for me it been a real comfort this year.

We had a year like many others. My sister law died in January from Covid. My son whilst on duty got a very bad pain in his chest . He had a split aorta type A .was in icu for 13 days in st Thomas’s. The NHS saved his life. . My husband had some bugs in his lungs that even after strong antibiotics can’t be cleared. Tomorrow I will be attending my sisters funeral. She passed away on 11 th august from cancer. Many of you have gone through tuff times. But I feel like this group is alway there for my husband and myself. Take care all . Tell the people that are dear to you that you love and care for them .

Reading your post my heart went out to you. Sadly I was in a similar situation were I lost my father, one of my brothers and my uncle within a twelve week period. It does help just to know there are people who will be there for you. We know just to have someone to listen helps. Take care.

Thank you . I think there has been many families with so many many heart aches this year xx

Bless you alyvonne. I'm so sorry for the dreadful time you and your family have had. At this moment the NHS are working on my precious sister, no-one can see her apart from her husband who is panicking and crying. We who love here cannot go in to hold her hand and whisper love to her.

It's all heartbreaking for so many people and so unfair. 😙😙😙 and hugs to you xx

Hello alyvonne , 👋

Well your post just put everything into prospective. I think I am having a hard time and then I see what you are going through and tell myself to get a grip. What a horrible nightmare you are experiencing. I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. And your son is lucky to be alive, not many people survive a split aorta and I have heard it is one of the worse pains one can experience. I sincerely hope things improve for you and your husband. Thinking of you and sending gentle hugs.

Thank you Caspiana. I think there has been a lot of families going through some terrible things in the last 18th months. Today our family will be together to say good bye to my sister. She had been a teacher in many schools in the villages in our area. We have had so many messages of the love people had for her. We have seen the best side of humanity. As I feel everyone on here and the support everyone gives one another. Xxx

Without realizing it, we are all just walking each other home. I hope you can find peace and solace knowing she will be missed and is loved beyond measure, not just by you and your family but by the countless students whose lives she touched. Much love to you Yvonne. xx 🌿
