HALL OF FAME
Now, what have we here then? Well my “Hall of Fame” of course!
It's the place where you will find all the people who have helped me along
the way. I'm trying to get photos of people, but most of them are camera
shy but I'll try my best.
Please don't take the order of writing as the order of importance amongst
names. It's just the way it appeared in my head.
Scroll down to view them all..........
No. 1 nurse and driver
- and definitely No. 1 Brother!
Despite the sarky comments!
Camera shy - this is as good as I could get....!
We were on an old steam train in this photo - fantastic :-)
My little man died 26 June 2009
Love you always Bertie, sleep peacefully now
See you at Rainbow Bridge!
No.1 visitor and cheerer-upper.
Falling asleep in my jumper drawer...!
MR T W R BRIGGS
Consultant Orth. Surgeon MB BS (Hons), M.Ch(Orth), FRCS (Ed), FRCS (Eng)
Confirmed my Lymphoma and said he would look after me and make me better
than before! Calls me “Young Karen”
- I like this man - my favourite consultant!
Lymphoedema Specialist Nurse
A lovely lady who cheered me up no end many a time…specially after seeing
a certain person…!!
DR A CASSONI
Made me have all those tests but it's for my own good and will make
Much as I've hated some of them!
Consultant Orth. Surgeon FRCS
After telling me it was a fracture and nothing nasty he then found an “unidentified
mass” in my proximal tibia - here's where the story begins!
DR CHARLES GILLHAM
Looked after me and my Lymphoma early after diagnosis. Could talk about anything
- he listened and answered my questions – exactly what a Doctor should do!!!!
PICC Queen Extraordinaire
The Queen of the PICC Lines!! Bopping to Blue on the radio whilst in the
mask and gown made the whole procedure more fun and easy going. Thanks!
Many wonderful nurses who all helped make my stay at UCH very pleasant.
I hope the blood pressure machine doesn't cut any more arms off before it's
MR P E BEARN
Gallbladder Surgery King
The King of Gallbladder operations, specially keyhole ones! I greatly appreciate
all you did for me to get rid of that horrendous pain! Such a relief to
get rid of it at last after all that suffering and many visits to A&E
in three different hospitals!
St Peters Hospital
Lots more wonderful nurses, you all have such a difficult job and with so
many pressures each day. Your help, understanding and care have been very
much appreciated by myself and my family. It was a real giggle at the same
time and Margaret and I think of you often!
Sadly Uncle George died in 2004 but he will be with us forever
with happy memories :-)
Thanks for being there for us all, not just now but always.
We were penpals whilst at school and are still writing to each other - although
via email now rather than pen and paper! Technology huh!
Very dear Friend who has always been there for me, specially through my
cancer. Thanks for everything!
Sadly Lyn died in January 2009.
Miss you more each day Lyn - you were a very special friend.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
TO ALL MY FURRY MONKEY FRIENDS
To everyone who “speaks” to me via Furry Monkey email.
Thanks for all your support. It helps me through the day.
If you'd like your photo in my Hall of Fame, send it along to me and I'll
add you in!! Go on I dare you!!
More photos will be added when the elusive people get “snapped” - so watch
