Nell: We’re posting very early this morning because you and Kev have to drive to the hospital for your procedure.
Me: Yes. Dave looks awfully worried. Darling Big Brave Beautiful Boy. Maybe Poppy can make him a bacon sandwich to cheer him up.
Nell: He’ll be fine. Don’t worry about him. We have other things to focus on today.
Me: Yes, we do.
Nell: This is the start of your journey back to good health.
Me: I hope so.
Nell: Finally things are starting to happen and the fight begins.
Me: I’m a little bit frightened to be honest, Nell.
Nell: That’s completely understandable but try not to be. You are in safe hands. They know what they’re doing.
Me: Yes, you’re right.
Nell: And remember you’re not doing this alone.
Nell: We are all with you in spirit.
Nell: And Kev will be just outside the hospital waiting to bring you home to us as soon as it is over.
Me: I know he will. He’s being absolutely wonderful.
Nell: It’s ok not to be ok, you know.
Me: I just wish I was braver.
Nell: You are much braver than you think.
Me: I’m trying to be.
Nell: Unleash that inner warrior of yours.
Me: I will if I can find it.
Nell: It’s there. It’s always there. You just need to look hard enough.
Me: I hope people know how much their support means to me.
Nell: They know.
Me: I really appreciate the love coming my way. So many kind messages. It’s overwhelming.
Nell: There’s plenty more waiting for you whenever you need it.
Me: I can do this, can’t I?
Nell: Of course you can.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
Nell: No sorries. Not today. Now, go and do this. We’ve got you.
