I have not logged for quite a while due not only to my continuing niggling ptt but also to a major life upset. My new beautiful baby grandson was taken ill at 6 weeks old and dugnised with a rare congenital kidney condition. I flew back to NZ from the Uk on the first flight I could get and we were all airlifted to the children's hospital in Auckland where we have been for the last 3 weeks. Thankfully he has been stabilised and although he will need regular albumin infusions and probably a kidney transplant we are optimistic he will pull through. Amazingly, or perhaps predictably, running is helping both my daughter and I get through this. The Starship hospital is right next to a beautiful park called the Domain, which has a measured mile running circuit called the Peace Mile around the edge. We have been taking it in turns to bumble around this route two or three times every other morning while the other is on bedside watch and it has been our salvation.
No Manchester marathon for me this year, but running isn't just about big goals. It is also about sustenance for the soul.
I hope to rejoin the forum when we come out on the other side of this. In the meantime, best wishes to all of you x
