Thank you so much for your congratulations on my reaching my goal ..
I know,without your encouragement and support it would have been much harder.
I wanted you to know just how grateful I am for your friendship, encouragement and help. Without this support I would been floundering.
I so appreciate all that you have done to make this journey with you so pleasurable and I have learned so much about myself in the process.
I have learned that I can do anything if I want to enough, and I have learned that Doctors don't know the power of the mind if one want something badly enough .
Don't ever let anyone tell you it can't be done, because it can and has.
We are all individuals... and we can make things happen, if we really want it enough.
I was told many years ago that because of the massive doses of Cortisone and the violent Asthma Attacks the Stroke and two Heart Attacks that I suffered, I would not live past 60 ..
I am now 68 and am Healthier and Fitter than I have been, in all of my life.
My daughter Helen who has extensive problems, not only with her Kidney but also with Meningitis affecting her learning capabilities ..Was told by her specialist when she was 15 she would be lucky indeed to see her 21st Birthday
Today at 46 she lives on her own ,and manages very well .
Brains do mend. Kidneys can improve. Helen has proved that.
So I thank you for your faith in me and Sparks.
