A very difficult blog post to write, I feel I should but how do you put into words that your world has come crashing down in a way you couldn't possibly have imagined in your worst nightmares? Mark was taken in to hospital just before Christmas, the results of the CAT scan, Lumbar Puncture and many many blood tests were all negative so we cruised into an MRI the Tuesday after Christmas with no real expectations that it would be anything but fine, and it wasn't.
On Monday the 4th of January Mark was given the diagnosis of CJD and the prognosis of months not longer, in reality I think it will be sooner. I think Mark had been so tough for so long and so determined to protect me that none of us realised how desperately ill he is. I can't imagine my life without my best friend beside me.
