New Year 2015
Mauritius. Party time! Champagne at midnight in the swimming pool with the kids and all our friends. Everything felt bittersweet though – “Will I make it to next Christmas? Don’t buy me any presents because I’m going to die soon.” Mauritius had changed for me now. I was torn between staying and the need to go home to the UK to support my healthcare. It had all been such a golden opportunity and an exciting adventure to start with, the envy of all our friends and family. Now everything was different.
The decision was made for us. We found out that Andy’s work contract there was going to be terminated in April due to a change in government. I was relieved.
Still obsessive, still Googling, still analysing everything. I felt my condition hadn’t progressed, the weakness was still only in my left hand after a year of having first noticed it.
