I’m currently sat in the departure area (it couldn’t be described as a lounge!) at Frankfurt Hahn airport awaiting our flight back to the UK. We should arrive back at Stansted Airport around 3pm GMT.
It has just been announced that the flight is delayed by 30 mins – well, Jenny was always late for everything!
This morning has been a lot more difficult than I thought it would when leaving the clinic. We all had an early breakfast in the clinic an a lot of the people there came to wish us all well. I managed to speak to the nursing staff, administration and Dr. Herzog himself and expressed our gratitude for all their efforts. All Jenny’s medical teams have been amazing over the last 4 years and I’ll be eternally grateful for all their efforts. However, Dr. Herzog was the one medical person who gave her hope when all other options had been exhausted. As long as Jenny wanted treating, he would continue to treat her – that was all we both wanted to hear.
The send off from the clinic was amazing and very moving for all of us. Special bonds were made and friendships cemented all under the positive banner of what most of us now regard as the premier private cancer clinic anywhere in the world – only the best for Jenny.
We’ll be boarding soon as then I suppose the hard work will really start after we land. Originally I didn’t want Jenny to die in Germany but all things considered there was a large amount of comfort that I took from the fact it happened in a place where we had both met amazing people and experienced a positive, life changing couple of months. In hindsight I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. We knew this was a long shot before we left the UK but like everything Jenny and I embarked on together we gave it everything and for that I have no regrets.
We will be reunited soon. Keep The Faith. xx
