The last time my (original Norton) family was all together was at my and Mariacristina’s wedding in July 2011. Until yesterday, that is, when we had a delightful afternoon all together in my room on the Ruth Myles Unit. Sadly my nephew and godson Peter is at an age where they recommend he doesn’t come on the ward,as 2-year-olds carry lots of bugs without knowing it, but my siblings, my dad, Mariacristina and Sue had a lot of fun with him, too, pre- and during their visit.

It was wonderful to see everyone (though Harriet’s husband Dunc and Fred’s girlfriend Kelly unfortunately weren’t here), and I’m proud to have brought the family together again, although they insisted that relapsing with ALL was a bit of an extreme way to do it…
