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 http://Pinnt.com
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.
