Had to have a blood transfusion this time

I always saw myself having children some day, but now I don't think it's going to happen.

The bleeding issue is getting worse, and this time I didn't manage to avoid a blood transfusion.

I ended up going to A&E again, then was in hospital for 4 days.

It took 5 bags of blood and a stack of pills to get the bleeding to stop and stop the dizzy feeling that made it feel like the ground wanted to rush up and hit me.

They've done loads of tests, but if they can't find anything new then the only option to stop the bleeding will be a hysterectomy.

It hurts that I have to give up my dream to live, but that might be the case. I have to stop the bleeding, and if that's the only way to do it then it will have to be done.

I hate it, but I can't live like this any more!

Toby's New World

Toby’s Tales, Book 1: Toby's New World

Genre: Social Issues/Special Needs

"Toby has just learned he’ll never see again. Now he’s learning just how frustrating it can be doing even simple things when you’re blind.
And it doesn’t help when his big brother Jake, and little sister Emma laugh at him when things don’t go right. But there’s always a way to make things
easier… Isn’t there?"

The “Toby’s Tales” books are designed to show children - and adults too - the struggles and challenges faced by people who are blind, or who are adjusting
to sight loss, while also being useful tools to educate those close to someone who is blind or adjusting to sight loss.

Jayde and Lucy are 7 today

It's hard to believe, but Jayde and Lucy are seven today!

Yes, really!

I miss them.

Jayde is very happy with Grandma, and Lucy is happy with Helen and Tom, but I still miss them.

Not as much as I miss the cats, but still a fair amount.

Making my blog private instead

I've decided not to delete my blog, but instead to make it private. Maybe one day I'll make it public again, but for now it will be a sort of online diary for me. I'll still write like I've got an audience though because I like the writing style.
