Thank You Doesn't Seem Enough .....


Thank You just doesn't seem enough for the phone calls, emails and prayers from you all.  I feel truly humbled.  I cannot explain how sharing our woes of the last 18 months was like a weight lifted from my shoulders.  Thank You for that.

I am pleased to report that Josh is doing well.  He had his dressings changed this morning and will have his prosthetic fitted next week.  Here he is enjoying some of my homemade pavlova with home grown fresh raspberries. 

Fingers crossed that it heals this time and that he can get on with his life.  He is searching for a new career at the moment as being a roof tiler may be a little dangerous now :)  He is highly motivated to provide for his little family so watch out world - Here comes Josh.

Hugs - Fee XX

Fee, Josh is an amazing young man. He seems so focused on looking after his wee family and everyone else. He obviously has his mothers sense of carrying and love.
You and Josh and your families will always have everyones love and support. Its times like these that I truly believe in karma.

I concur with your comments on 2011, for some it has been a wonderfull year , others not so good. Josh has suffered as you all have as a family, yet he has a positive attitude, so nice to see in anyone. When Abbey had her accident our daughter Andrea's twin had just finished radiotherapy from breast cancer the October 2010. Now this last week she is in hospital again with a Meckle's Diverticulum, 2% of the population have them . However it is ever upward for her from today on. Blessings Margaret

Your Family has had a rough year. Your son is a true inspiration and I wish him every success in the future, with his attitude, he can't go wrong. No wonder you are so very proud of him! Good to know that your health problems are being looked after as well. Sending lots of thoughts and prayers your way, and wishing you every blessing in the coming year! Hugs, Sandy.

Fee, wishing that Josh finds a new career he likes and, like my son, I don't think it will be a desk jockey job as he seems more of an outdoors person too.
Cheers,
Robyn
