I have had many instances of help and support from not only my wife, but my specialist nurse and many friends.
It is amazing how much your friends think about you, but only when things go wrong do you realise the extent of this friendship. I never presume on people, but aint it nice to know they are there if needed.
Since my licence was revoked I have so many offers of....if you need transport etc.
Recently I went into hopsital for an op. They told me I would have to have my right leg removed. When I woke up from the op, the surgeon said 'we're very sorry Orphy old chap we have taken your left leg off by mistake and you will have to undergo another op to remove the bad leg'.
'Oh 'eck', I said.....or words to that effect, 'is there never any good news.'
'Well', said the surgeon,'in your case there is'.......I sat forward in anticipation......'the bloke in the next bed has bought your slippers'.
The old ones are the best.
On a more serious note I write to people.....seriously......and thank them for a kindness shown just like you did.
People doing ordinary jobs get bored. Imagine the boost they get when they do something like that and get a nice letter to say how much it was appreciated. It makes all thier efforts worthwhile. I know this from experience.
It restores faith in humanity as much as anything else. The 6-0-clock news hardly does anything for us these days.
Get writing people.
I left a message on my specialist nurses phone recently. I said, 'there is no need to reply to this, I just want to say thank you for all your hard work and support'. It was heart felt and sincere. I hope it brightened her day as much as she brightens mine when I have a problem.
It costs nowt, but the value is priceless.
If you don't believe me take a look at the Mastercard advert. It must be true if they say so.
