3 years ago…..

5 Sep

It was three years ago on Monday, the 3rd of September, that this painful, unreal, emotional, rollercoaster of a journey began with that 1st seizure by the side of a pool. I can’t believe it is already three years, I can’t believe it is only three years. One of the most poignant things for me about this date and about Tilda’s upcoming 6th birthday on the 10th September,  is that it means that this battle has now consumed half of her life. Life before seizures, medications, dr appointments, hospital stays and therapies is becoming more and more of a haze.

But there was a life and it is important to remember it.

Tilda and I were very social butterflies over the weekend with the wonderful freedom that having our van brings. We did lots of visiting and enjoying of the beautiful spring sunshine. I think I may have worn her out though as she has gone a bit quiet and lethargic over the last couple of days. I think she has the beginnings of a little cold but I have taken her to the dr and thankfully her chest is clear. She took the day off school today so we have been keeping quiet.

Raffle tickets for our TeamTilda Fundraiser are now ready for purchasing!!

Thank you so much to those who have already bought tickets or taken books to sell. Tickets are $5. If you would like to purchase a ticket, you can email teamtilda@hotmail.com with your details and deposit the money into the TeamTilda account (see the Donate tab). If you think you would be able to sell a book of 20 then email us your address and we will send a book out to you. A huge thank you also to the amazing people who donated the prizes – will you all think it is rigged if I win the trip to Noosa??’

Much love and Happy Springtime to all.

    I did love the early photos of Tilda, such a cutie and a brilliant smile.
    I loved the Dora bike.
    Three years ago that Tilda’s and your life changed in a massive way.
    We have been on the journey with you.

    I am pleased you and Tilda were social butterflies over the weekend.
    Good luck with the raffle tickets, hope you sell a million.

    Warm hugs
    Love Cally xx
