Better, but no faster.

Two days ago I swam ( well, after a fashion ) 500 metres. It took for bloody ever and I swallowed half the pool, but I got there.

  1. Hi Russell
    I am your cousin Jill living in Australia. My Dad was John Luxton who was your Mum’s brother. I met your parents a few years back when they came out to OZ on a Rugby tour. I first heard about your accident from our cousin Wendy & have followed your blog. Tried to comment on your original blog but couldn’t work our how to do it. You might say I am technologically challenged!

    I admire your strength & perseverance. I think you probably get much more out of life than people with full use of all their components. So many take so much for granted these days. Like your Mother I also have had breast cancer & it has changed my life for the better.

    People like you are our heroes & a wonderful example of how to live life. I wish you all the best for your future.
    Love your cuzzie Jill

    1. Jill,
      So lovely to hear from you. Mum speaks so fondly of you.
      I’m touched that you’re following my diary from so far away. I’ve only spent one day in Oz, passing through from kayaking in Fiji, a bit back. Was a great trip, and like all my adventures, I’m so relieved now that I got to have them whilst I was physically able.
      Don’t let this be your only message to me, ok!
