I'd like to say a few words about my dear Mother-in-Law Nina Kasapova. Last March she was diagnosed with late stage pancreatic cancer on top of already having Parkinson's disease. The initial prognosis was not good but she now receiving treatment at the Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital. My deepest gratitude and thanks to the doctors and all the staff on the Mulbarton ward. I never want to hear a bad word about the NHS after this!
Nina is an amazing woman. Her resilience and fighting spirit after months of serious illness is just inspiring. I feel lucky to know her and privileged to be along side her and Polina during this time. After a tough day at work, I go up to see her at the NNUH and when I talk to her, my own little problems seem so insignificant and stupid. It really puts things into perspective.
If you want to have an idea of just how much a fighter she is, here a photo of Nina in her hospital bed giving cancer the middle finger!
Nina tells cancer what it can do!
Nina, if you're reading this...........you're my hero! Keep fighting and with love from all the dragons we will get through this.Then we can enjoy some tasty mussels at the Belgian Monk!
To those who read my blog and to all my fellow birders, please wish us well!
