Yes I know we were so lucky. But I have come to realise that you make your own luck. I have been criticised in the past by Ella, my family and friends, for not aacepting the fact that she had MS and that there was nothing to do about it. But I could not, would not? Too stubborn, too much to loose, including my daughter who is not the kind of person who is likely to want to go on living when she had to rely on others to do everything for her. In the same ward as Ella in the hospital there was such a young woman, probably a bit older than Ella but certainly no more than 35, she could not move or talk, the only thing I saw her do by herself is cry... Her parents took care of her the best they could but it was like seeing a sack of potatoes being handled... Heart breaking... So what choice did I have? I had to keep looking and asking questions... And in the end I was rewarded...
So now we wait with hope, not despair.
And I commend you and another of my friends in the UK who is going to Bulgaria, for taking a leap in the dark and being one of the first to go to Bulgaria.
I'll be thinking of you and waiting with anticipation to hear how you get on.
