Well, I made it!  Ten years to the day since my 'event' and I'm still here.  It just shows it can be done!

 

It is also eight years to the day that I married the lady that saved my life, my wife Sandra!

 

It is hard to believe that all that time has passed.  I am eternally grateful to my surgeon and his team. 

 

Well, the weather is fine, the sun is shining, it's a clear blue sky (not often you can say that in Salford!) and we're going for an Italian tonight.  

 

Here's to the next ten and thanks to everyone who has supported me through these last ten years.  I have learned so much from others 'who get it' on this site and your experiences, strength in the face of adversity, and your downright humanity, humbles me.

 

I wish everyone all the very best in your recoveries however long it takes and just say from me "Thanks for being there!"

Hi Macca,

 

Congratulations on both your 8th wedding anniversary and your 10 year milestone.  You are an inspirational person, who not only had to contend with your own recovery from sah, but have helped so many others, me included, through your very wise words along the way.  I really admire your eloquently written posts which are always positive, helpful and written from the heart💜

 

I hope you both enjoyed your Italian - felice anniversario !

 

Love,

Sarah x

Thank you all very much for your kind words.  I really find it difficult to believe how long it has been since this awful event happened to me. 

 

The silver lining though is that I came into contact with all of you. From my point of view, I think you underestimate how much of a help you all are to me with the inspirational things you do, sometimes in the face of terrible adversity.  I think this group is a kind of push me pull you type of thing where we all bounce and thrive off each other and long may it continue.

 

Just for the record, my wife and I had a fabulous meal last night in a superb Italian restaurant to cap off a lovely day.

 

Once again, thank you to everyone for 'being there' for me.

 

Macca
