On 19th July 2011, I suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage after a rupture of a cerebral aneurysm. I spent 8 weeks in Royal Hallamshire hospital in ITU and HDU. I was transferred to the Northern General Hospital, Osborn 4 Neuro-rehabilitation ward for a further 7 months. I was unable to talk, walk and had weakness on my right side after a stroke. In February 2012, after a procedure called a Shunt, I began to walk & talk. These are my daily activities, memories and thoughts.....enjoy :)

Wednesday 11th July
Wednesday 11th July
The wake up call at 2am, I just thought that I needed the wee wee toilet.
My wonderful big brother Brian xx
I woke up at 7am. I seen that I had a message on my phone from my brother Brian from Glasgow. When I seen his message I seen that he sent it at 01:45, this must have woken me up early at 2am. I realised that I must have been on his mind, he sent me “I enjoyed seeing you at your birthday. And you were good fun. Love you loads :)><3 I cried as Brian sent me his text that he loves me. I was a sobbing mess.
Brian the pig lol
I was waiting for Janiece as we were supposed to go shopping to make my dinner tomorrow. When Janiece arrived I was still bubbleing, I couldn’t stop myself. I ended up foneing Brian to tell him that I was sad. I told Brian that I gave the pig a name “Brian” I’m clever to eh!
I just decided that I would love to go home for the day and night. I went shopping with Janiece and we got the mince and pitta bread for the dinner. We were looking forward to see me cooking again. It was great making a chilli for Janiece, David and me .We bought the birthday cards for Pat, it’s her birthday tomorrow.
Sheryl & Shane on their wedding day in Antigua
I was lovely looking at the wedding photos on Facebook. Sheryl and Shane looked amazing and all you seen was the love in their eyes.
I’m going to bed now as I have a busy day with Pat’s birthday and get to the hospital for Janieces eye infection, just to make sure that it’s ok. She will be fine.
