New Year. New ideas. New approach.

Happy New Year all.

Wow, six months since my last post. Why the failings? Well, like many bloggers, I start off with the best intentions to bring you some ramble or something every week but it usually falls by the wayside. I often hear myself saying “I can blog about that [recent incident/observation] later” and then never do.

Well, let’s try again. Let’s try and blog weekly. Let’s possibly fail again at the frequency.

Some poignant that happened recently. I met a mum who’s son had caught a cold. Nothing interesting there, most kids get colds. This was different. This turned into a sinus infection that then spread to his brain. Nearly dying a number of times, he spent ten weeks in hospital, have five (six hour) operations and part of his brain removed.

The Dr’s had warned the family that he may never, walk, talk, or do anything ever again. Luckily, he has made a remarkable recovery and aside from some learning difficulty he is doing well. It’s long recovery process and will I’m sure takes it’s toll on the family but the heartening thing his mum said to me, that will stay with me was “I didn’t need to put any Christmas decorations up. The fact all my children were alive was all the sparkle I needed”.

Having known families and relatives that have lost children through illness or injury, and as a proud father myself, I can see what she means. I have always said, all the money in the world is useless if you and your loved ones don’t have health. A statement brought to the public by the departure last year of Steve Jobs. Whatever your feeling about Apple’s technology good and bad, proof that one of the world’s wealthiest technology men can’t beat his illness, no matter what resources he had at his disposal, should make you realise we’re all them same in the end.
