Yesterday I woke up with dreadful pain all down my right side, I also had pain in my left knee and ankle, I don't know what is going on! I am trying to stay strong and settle the pain with hot water bottles and panadol. Despite the pain I went to running training and we went for our usual lap around the AIS, I found that the lovely Autumn sun warmed my bones and eased some of the pain.
After we came home from running training I did sudoku and helped Mum and Dad chose some photographs to order from our special session with Luke the other weekend, it was so hard to choose because most of the photographs were grandiose! I also watched a DVD and it was Barbie Thumbelina, it must of made me exhausted because I fell asleep. I slept for over an hour and Mum gently woke me up to go to Church, in the Church bulletin there was a mention about my book, that was a tremendous surprise. From sitting in Church I found that my knee became stiff, stuck and deeply painful. So I went to bed with the same pain that I had woken up with.
Today I woke hoping to be pain free but tragically I was not, the pain throbbed through my right knee and ankle. However I did not want to waste the day feeling sorry for myself, remember I want to make the most of every beautiful day. Dad was at work because today was a race day, so we decided to go shopping for his Birthday presents, his Birthday is on the 7th of May. When we were at the shops a lady approached me and told me that she had been to Angus and Robertson to see if they had my book and they said it would be in within the next week or so.
I am now getting everything ready for going back to school, I am nervous but excited at the same time. There was some dreadful news that we received over the weekend and that was that Gavin who was one of the miracle men behind my book was involved in a motorbike accident, he has broken his jaw in several places. I have been praying for him and I hope for a speedy recovery because he is such a special person to me. Luckily he had that king sized meal at the lunch after my book launch because now he can only have sloppy food - Poor him!
Chris the ABC Stateline journalist has given me the direct links to the two stories they did and thought I would like to post them on my Blog so you can all watch them, Chris is another fantastic person and he told my story so beautifully.
