The usual thing happened, I started doing my talking again. I started talking on the February 18th it was very difficult, I was learning to speak all over again.
As I chatted with the nurses all of a sudden Matt knew that I was there. He recognised my voice, he knew it was me. Matt has lost his voice and his legs, he got off his holiday flight then bang, they disappeared. That was just like me. I almost ran to see him and asked him if I could give him a cuddle and kiss. He had the biggest smile and Matt tried to shake his head “YES”. I asked Janiece to take our picture and Matt moved his head to say that it was ok. I felt so happy that he was so happy. I told Matt that I was going to the next room to say hello to other residents. I looked at him from the other room then “BANG” his legs were dancing on his bed, he was so excited he couldn’t stop the movement, I was excited at the movement which I saw, I could hardly control myself WOW, WOW, WOW.
I can help people by having a kiss and cuddle, by having a smile, by having a picture or making people laugh. It doesn’t really need to be financial, it can be free to help people. I’m going to assist the NEUROCARE CHARITY as I feel that I will do a good job and possibly get a couple of pounds for their needs. Emma Douglas works for Neurocare charity, Emma is going to walk with me next April 2013. Lets hope the jars will jingle with the coppers, maybe a little prayer will help us. My nephew Michael Burns and his lady Beth ……*** came round for a chat. Beth has asked me if she can walk with Emma and I on the charity next April, I said yes, yes, yes.
