My New Companion: Hans

On the day we got trained to use my pump for my tube feeding – Gwen, the lovely nurse who trained us, gave me a card with her contact details and other information.  The card had a website on, it lead me to

PINNT is a UK charity that supports and provides information for patients on intravenous and nasogastric nutrition therapy.

The charity sent me a beautiful bear this morning.  As well as being a soft little bear to tell all your secrets and insecurities to.   He is designed to be a companion to take on journeys.  Also a fantastic way of promoting awareness.    I’ve called my bear Hans.    I’ve called him Hans after a doctor.  The doctor was the chap that gave my Mum her first diagnosis of lung cancer.  He was kind and gentle.  I was with my mum and my sisters when he told her.  Mum and I hugged so tight when we left the consultation room.

Hans will feature in a few of my blog posts.   Already I have confided in Hans.  Fingers crossed he is loyal and doesn’t blab to others – ha ha .

This is lovable beautiful Hans.

      Do you know I just had a quick look on your blog – I can’t believe the similarities – I too am approaching 50 years of age. My hubby is my soul mate. We met at high school – have been together since we were 14 years old. We married in 1986 had our first son in 1987 and our second son in 1990.
