Hi haven't been on here for sometime, hope everyone is well and have enjoyed the Christmas and New Year festivities. I have moved to Perth, Australia from NZ and trying to find out if Di still lives here. If anyone has contact with Di could they please give her my email addy and tell her I would love to catch up. Take Care xx
Hi Doll. I am am at a very low point right now. In Dec I had a stress induced heart attack and spent three days in the hospital. Christmas Eve, our daughter-in-law told my son that she no longer loves him (nothing is being posted on facebook as she reads my stuff) and now she has announced she is leaving him. We have to be very careful as we do not want to lose contact with our granddaughter. So life is the pits right now. We are playing a blancing game of trying to be supportive of our son and not piss the princess off. Oklahoma Hugs, Love, & Prayers

Hi Keith hey so sorry to hear that. We had the same thing happen in our lives, my son ended up with his girls as the mum just walked away. It can be so hard for grand parents as they want to be there for their own child and keep contact with the other person. I hope all works out for you. As for the heart attack, how has the recovery been?
Hi Caz, thank you, I almost got to meet up with Di but she got ill so we run out of time, maybe sometime along the way I will finally meet her. How are you and your family? We are all fine, I have just become a Grandmother again and am going back to NZ this week to meet my new Grandson, really excited. Great to hear from you xxxxxx
Hi Hun - things not great here. I'm now termed as final stage crohns as cant have more surgery due to the bowel being too thin. As I have an inoperable stricture I'm treated by the palliative care team for pain and they try and keep me at home as much as they can to spend time with my beautiful daughter . I can't physically look after her much due to this, the RA and the seizures but it doesn't mean I can't spend quality time with her. She is amazing 2llb born with the outlook of learning difficulties / health probs and she is anything but. Healthy , happy and hyper active . I still can't believe she is ours and cherish everyday with her. How is your health and what made you move to Aus?. Much love Caz Ps congrats on grandchild - I soooo wish mum could have seen Autumn

Hey so sorry to hear your health has gotten to that stage. It must help having your beautiful daughter to focus on and keeping you entertained. Yes it is sad your mum didn't get to meet Autumn, but I'm sure she is with you both, watching over you. She would be so pleased that you finally got the wee angel you always dreamed of having. It's always great to have a happy healthy child. How old is Autumn now?
My health has been good as in the crohns behaving it self but I suffer from arthritis and that is hard to deal with at times. I moved to Aus last year when my son moved to Perth for work, he wanted me to help him get a house so his partner could move over with their two cats. I liked it and stayed. Bryan moved over in November and the long term plan is to travel around Aus. It was always a retirement plan but we decided to do it while we were still able.
I often think of you and the others I used to chat to and still hear from some on Facebook, it was certainly a great board to be part of when I was first diagnosed with crohns. It's amazing how many people are affected with it now.
Stay strong and enjoy your wee girl Love & hugs Shirley xxxxx
