Hi Sarah,

thanks for sharing.

Having gone through such a traumatic 'event' we and our loved ones come out of it; at what seems at first different. But as time passes, as in the case of my family and I; we look back and 'see' how we've all worked together for us to reach a 'normality' level of our lives. We reflect on the highs and lows, but more importantly how we are still the same loving family we've always been. Without which, I would never have been able to achieve what I have.

You are very lucky to have a daughter who has not only shared your situation, but has been able to write about it.

she does write we are not as close as we used to be.

IMO, the fact that she has written about you and has let you read it; appears to me that you are both very close.

IMO, you should be proud of each other.

Best as ever
