Tragic news update

Hi everybody. I wanted to thank all of you for your kind messages, both on my thread and private ones, it means so much to know I am thought of.

The last week and a half has been awful, he died late wednesday the 11th and it was late Friday the 20th before he was back in Scotland. We haven't been able to see him because its taken too long, and I think it may have helped me accept it if I had. The funeral is now planned for next Monday which is nearly 3 weeks since he died I had no idea it would drag out like this.

I'm walking around in a bit of a daze and I still don't believe it, I suppose it will just take time.

I have lost half a stone but its not healthy, I'm now just below my target but its because its really hard to eat. I'm trying as I know I need to be healthy for Hannah but its hard.

I have had to buy some clothes as I didn't have anything smart to wear (I'm not wearing black) and size 10's fit great and in some cases are a bit loose. I'm saddened that Marc never got to see me like this but I know I am lucky as he loved me regardless of size. None of this seems worth it now but I know for myself and my daughter I need to keep myself as healthy as possible.

I wanted to share the 'new me' with him, but I suppose it just wasn't meant to be.

Thanks again for all your kind messages, not sure when I will post again, but please send up a prayer for us on Monday at 1335. I have no idea how we will make it through the day.

escaping the fat
Ahh Mags thank you for coming on and letting us know whats been happening, i cant imagine how awful it must be for you. You have been in my prayers and will continue to be. You are doing so well to stay strong for Hannah, you are doing Marc proud.
Hi Mags,

I am pleased you were able to post. So many of your friends on here have been thinking of you, your daughter and your family.

It has brought home to us all the fragility of life and how we must always treasure the moment and give time to those we love and love us.

Fate is a strange thing and no-one knows which way it will turn.

We all will be with you in thought on Monday and hope the day will be one of celebration for your husband's life and time you had with him and of course the child he left behind which will always be a part of you and him.

Mags sweetie,

Words fail me - I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. All my thoughts and prayers are with you, Hannah and your family and friends. Mark would be so proud of you, you are an amazing woman

Much Love xxxxxxxxxxx
Mags, I've been thinking of you ever since you posted originally.

It's brought it home how precious life is, and how we really should try our best to live each day to the full and have no regrets.

I'll be thinking of you and Hannah, especially on Monday .. as I have been every day.

Take care of yourself :hug99: :hug99:
