Thousend times thanks!

To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,

On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther

Airfix and transfers

Hello everyone!

it just occurred to me that in my first youth about this time I got interested in Airfix kits! I do owe Airfix a lot. Apart from filling many hours of my misspent youth, it helped me to learn English and stimulated an interest in history.

Perhaps I ought to pick it up again.

Today I managed a transfer from wheelchair to toilet and back. And LATER FROM WHEELCHAIR TO BED AND BACK. thIS OPENS PERSPECTIVES.

I hope Iwill continue to improve.

  2. Just make sure you don't glue yourself to the chair by mistake.


  3. And I don't see any reason why improvement is stalling or should halt now. The nurses will have their hands full with the care of you, keeping you in check.

  4. That sounds like an excellent title for your autobiography.
