Hi John,
Just a P.S. to my response to your wonderful idea of a trophy.
Please don't feel guilty, I won't allow my disbilty to become too much of a
restaint on my life. One thing I have learnt through bitter experience is
that no doctor, though as well meaning as they may be, should ever take away
a persons hope!
Twenty years ago I was told I would never walk again and only had limited
movement in my arms. I can now walk on crutches for short periods and enjoy
a fullness of life I thought would never be mine again.
My bush walking and hiking days are long gone but there are always
alternatives - for example my discovery of Birding-Aus has revived all the
joys I had for I am living them again with every email I read. Sometimes I
believe I can smell the salt air when reading of the sea birds .
Again 'thank you' John and everyone else - you are all too numerous to
mention but I read and enjoy everyone of your emails,
