Oli’s coming home on Thursday!!!!! small print – as long as nothing bad happens in between now and then.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I’m so excited, it’s going to be so wonderful to have him home and be able to chill out on our sofa and watch movies and drink tea!
Yesterday we had another great day together, my parents took me over to see him and the four of us went for a cup of tea in the League of Friends pavillion. It was lovely and so normal just to be sitting and chatting together. My parents then left and I stayed behind with Oli for the rest of the day. Oli’s parents visited and then two of our bestest buddies came to see him and to take me home in the evening. Throughout the day I just kept looking at Oli and seeing how happy he looked and how healthy. We went to the canteen with the guys in the evening and it was almost normal to be sitting, having a giggle and a cuppa (only almost normal because a hospital canteen is never quite venue of choice to go with friends).
For the past few days Oli has had to put up with hearing nurses and doctors commenting on how he should be ready to go home soon, today they’ve finally agreed that Thursday is the day, hooray!
I can’t wait to have him home, it’ll be great to have him here as our nieces and nephews get excited as Christmas draws nearer. We can share in the excitement for the first time in ages and Oli doesn’t have to worry so much about measuring his energy reserves or being scared that it might be his last.
I got a letter from UCL today, unfortunately I didn’t get in. I’m a bit gutted but in the grand scheme of things we already have so much to be thankful for, I’m not going to waste time or energy feeling sorry for myself. Nothing can ruin how happy I am that Oli is coming home x
