At the end of the day I am so happy. In fact I said to Kathy I have not felt this emotion for 3 months. It’s happy and contentment. I am thrilled with how Mike’s room has turned out and get great pleasure from being in there. Although one or two items would not have been in his selection, I am sure he would have enjoyed coming home from Coventry to his room.
It’s so good to feel this way but here is the truth. As I write I want to cry! (It’s a couple of hours since talking to Kath), sitting here so lonely for Mike and listening to Phil Collins doesnt help!
Kathy and I are doing well and are ready to go back to work full-time. We will not be back emotionally but physically. I realise we will “walk with a limp” for the rest of our lives.
