Some lovely comments:
I've enjoyed these blog posts so much, and have, in fact, been searching them out every day to make sure I don't miss one - a serious accolade for your writing in an age of endless media choices and overwhelming new content! Your bravery, thoughtfulness, openness and humour make for very compelling reading : thank you
What an amazingly moving and well written account of your experience. Terrifying and so sad yet with such positives too. Thank you for (making me cry in public again) and for sharing.
