Heather Fraser

To all the wonderful people who have shown interest in Heather Fraser, again our thanks. We are still receiving donations and people are still assisting. Saying ‘thank you’ just doesn’t seem enough.

Heather has been moved into her own room at Fairways and now has a lovely view of the garden, the trees and the blue skies. She really values that. She was even given a tree, just for her to look at and enjoy. She is still bed-bound. The wonderful Doctor who is treating her discovered that she has a trapped nerve in her back which means another major operation. We are not sure what is going to happen at this stage.

When I visited Heather yesterday she was clutching a  teddy bear. Some kind person had arrived on a Monday morning with arm loads of teddy bears which she distributed to everyone as ‘Happy Monday’ gifts.  I am so humbled and so very grateful at how many caring, compassionate and proactive people there are in this world, quietly doing amazing things. Thank you for that teddy. Heather literally holds it close to her all the time.

We are making a further appeal (yes, another one!). This time for assistance in clearing out Heather’s house. We have managed to clear one room and bring the piles down from ceiling height to waist level. But there is still so much to do. The aim is to sort out the good stuff from the junk. And then to sell the better stuff and put the proceeds towards Heathers op, if she decides to have it done.  The plan is to spend Saturday 29th March  at her house doing as much as we can, until it is clear. If you can help please let me know. And if you have a truck perhaps we could use it to cart bags to the dump.

But please be warned, this is not for the faint-hearted. It is a very dirty and laborious job.

As always, thank you for caring, for responding, and for being the amazing people that you are.
