A little trip to blackpool August 2, 2008

Posted by loz121 in Uncategorized.
I rested for a few weeks at home and enjoyed the sunshine we were getting. I sat in the garden most of the time reading magazines. I was 6 stone at this point.

In August 2007, my parents took me to Blackpool, a seaside town for a few days to recuperate. My brother decided to stay at home. The last time I went to Blackpool for a few days was after my last intensive care stint in 2003 and we went in the summer of 2004 but I ended up collapsing after walking too much. So from then on, we either took the tram or had a rest between walking.

I had brought my PEG pump and everything that came with it along too as I was still being fed every night. When I was not being fed, I was quite happy to sit in the tea room of the hotel reading a paper while my parents took a break from me or we all went out together. I went to see a show Legends where we saw the impersonators of music artists such as Freddie Mercury & Rod Stewart. I thought it was brilliant and very entertaining! At one point, Freddie Mercury ended up sitting on my lap as part of the act!

I came back home refreshed and ready for anything!
