    Easter Sunday is a time of hope and new life...there will be a candle burning in my church today for everyone on this thread, because you are all very much in my thoughts and prayers - and, whether you are a believer or not, everyone needs a helping hand at some point in their lives.

    Indeed GL said something similar about how the message of Easter was not lost on her this year, as she is the recipient of a 'life' now, thanks to a gift of bone marrow from someone completely unknown to her.
    She is inordinately grateful to that donor who has made her recovery possible, as are we of course.

    Have been to visit GL herself this afternoon and she is grateful for all those good wishes.

    She is doing remarkably well considering how ill she has been. As she pointed out, it will be a long haul, rather than a short spurt and she still has to avoid crowds etc. until her 'new' immune system has fully taken over, so I feel very privileged to have been allowed to 'come visit'. We even had a mini-Meet with foxtail and Theo and a good time was had by all- including a very posh 'afternoon tea with CAKE! ;)

    Are there any updates people are able to pass on?
    I often think of you all, even though we've never met, face-to-face.

    GLsghost is doing very well,
    Only a fortnight ago she said this
    Just back from a very long day at the hospital, with all the faffing around. But a day of very good news with everything going really well and any weird symptoms due to the strong transplant telling the world it really doesn't want all those nasty drugs any more, thank you. I've been instructed to bin or reduce lots of them as no longer needed! .

    She has had one or two days when she's been very tired of course and she's had a new haircut and colour.

    My husband is waiting for his next check up, but it's now been over a year since his treatment and had his last 'oestrogen injection back in Feb. Still getting the 'hot flushes' though, because it takes a whil to get out of the system and he's finding his strength isn't what it used to be when lifting heavy gas bottle, but all in all very positive.

    No idea about Ilovepoppies.

    So pleased to hear the good news, GLsghost and glad your husband is doing well, lara. Hope you're all managing to enjoy the sunshine x

    Finally someone has managed to contact poppies. I think it's safe to say that 'it's still an ongoing situation and although very weak after all her treatment she is making progress. Enough to be able to enjoy a family holiday in Turkey, which must be a real boost for her.
