Nathan has turned the corner

Remember about 6 months ago I told you our #2 son, Nathan was very ill with a
blood clot on the lung. We came sooo close to loosing him. (I still shudder at
the thought of what might have happened if he hadn't have listened to me/mum and
got off to the doc when he did.)
Well, after a few set-backs along the way he's turned a corner today, finally, a
really big one.
Big Whew! around here this morning.
He went to his first fitness training session this morning.
Not being allowed to do any above very mild exercise for so long has meant that
he has lost all the fitness he did have and he was very fit as he was training 4
times a week and fighting most weekends when the 'sports related injury'
occured. In all that time off he only gained 6 kg so I think he did really well.
I lined up one of the guys I work with, who does fitness training on the side,
and Nathan went off for the first session this morning. He is surprised at just
how much fitness he has lost. But my mate Beau knows what he is doing and will
lead him along correctly. Now maybe Nathan can start getting his life back on
track again. Poor bugga! He never seems to get a break, always has to work
really hard for anything he gets in life.

Oh, and he's still single and can cook.
