Back again after a long time away... was created by ArtzyJen
Hello... I've been a member of the board for a long time, but it's been a couple of years at least since my last post. It is so good to be back! And it's good to see familiar names and faces. I've never lost my love for Nat's work and desperately miss Inspector Lynley, but Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock is an ample replacement for the genre at least. I loved Land Girls and finally got to see Flawless a few weeks ago and cannot wait to see Nat in something new!

Since the last time I posted, I've quit my job as a graphic designer and become a full-time Mommy to my wonderful little boy who is now 21 months old. I spent most of the time in the hospital with my son's medical complications, but he's finally stable and hasn't been hospitalized since June!

He has Cystic Fibrosis and lost 90% of his small intestine at 2 months old due to massive complications. He went through multiple organ transplant evaluation a year ago, but thank God, the doctors decided to do one last corrective surgery and he's responded miraculously. He's healthy now and you would never know he was so sick before if it weren't for his stomach tube- which will eventually be gone too. Thanks to needing stress relief, I've also become a runner since being away from the boards and I'm training for a half marathon, but have my sights set on a full marathon eventually. I never thought I'd be saying this, (couch potato me), but I actually love running! It's become more of 'me' time and something I desperately needed after having such a rough 3 years. My other 'me' time still includes Nat's work of course. :laugh: I'm thankful to have a great husband who puts up with my 'boyfriend'. :lol:

Hello ArtyJen. :)
Welcome back to the family of Nat's site :cheer: .
Congratulations on your baby. I am sorry that your son has cystic fibrosis, and that you have spent a time in the hospital so hard. But I'm glad, thank God that your child is recovering.
Welcome back again.
A warm greeting from Spain. :kiss:
Amparo.

I wish you and your son all the best. I too have been away from the group for medical reasons, and it is wonderful to be able to pop in and see all the familiar names here and get news on Nat's projects. I wish your family a healthful, peaceful and blessed Holiday. Pitzel

Oh wow, you've been through a lot! Happy thoughts and hugs for your little boy - he must be a real trooper. Good luck with the running - I'm a runner too, though not a very good one. I've just been in one 5K (31:50).

Welcome back!

I'm not around as much as I want to be, but dangit, I'm going to make more effort.

I wish you and your son all the best.

Hope you have a great holiday!

Amy
