Sweet Dreams Rebecca

Sweet Dreams Rebecca
Tomorrow Rebecca's life long dream is about to come true. She will be having her GRS with the wonderful Dr Bowers in Trinidad USA. I am so pleased for & hope & pray the surgery goes well & is everything she wishes for.

What incredible emotions she must be going through. With all the excitement & anxiety I am not sure how you can get to sleep. This journey feels like a rebirth & rather like a child at Christmas I am not sure how you could sleep. I hope she has the sweetest of dreams & awakens with the biggest of bright happy smiles that will light up the sky.

I also had some very exciting news of my own today. After dealing with so many phone calls I had nearly lost my voice today, I had the most magical call from the lovely Liz Hills at Brighton , where I hope to have my surgery with Mr Thomas. She has received the referral letter confirming funding for my own GRS.
My date with destiny, my GRS is pencilled in for 3rd November 2009 at 8.30.
Tuesdays must be a popular day to have your dreams come true!
As some of us are blessed with the fortune to live our dreams there are those that experience our dreams from a different perspective, who we should never ever forget, our loved ones. God Bless them all.
For them there is a mixture of emotions. They can be an Ocean away from our dream but they still care so much about us. My thoughts are also with Rebecca's special friend Nicky this evening. My transition has taken what feels like one hundred years or more. My dear Mum & Dad had feared the day that means so much to me for over ten years. Now they have opened their hearts they can see that it is truly right for me & are being very accepting & supportive. My Mum was overcome with emotion tonight when I told her my news. It was difficult for her to share my dream as it was once her nightmare. She has genuinely been happy for me but this was so heart breaking to witness. The poor love seemed torn between crying because she was happy she was gaining a daughter but also sad she was finally mourning the loss of the child she had once thought was a son. I felt so guilty needing to put my parents through so much agony when I felt so much joy, especially at their tender years. We have been getting through the tissues drying our tears & comfort eating the chocolates, tonight.
Sweet dreams

Debbie, thank you so much for your well wishes. Things are going great here in Trinidad. I'm being dispatched from the hospital today, in fact.

Contratulations on your GRS date!!! It will truly change your life.

Thrilling news! I was going to ask how long would you be in hospital, and whether would you want any visitors (because I'm local to Brighton), but I see (would you believe the coincidence?) that I'm off on another cruise on 3 November (Saga Ruby, sailing from Southampton) and so I can't be there. But I will be thinking of you. Lucy
