Good afternoon Lynne from a cold Parisian early morning.

HI Lynne. Glad you’ve woken up and so glad you have lots of love around you. May the force be with you. xx

Good morning amazing lady….

Yesterday! What a time it was! You had to be there really. It doesn’t all sound so amazing when you tell the tale out of context. But those who were present… well… they know. And you were there, weren’t you? Just think how big and important all that stuff was. It changed everything didn’t it? Now. Here’s a question. What’s the big difference between that time of transformation and the time you’re living through now? This is a similar phase. Forget the last big breakthrough. Just get ready for the next!

This song made me think of you
Il était un soir
Il était une fois
Quelque chose et moi
Quelque chose et moi

Il était un soir
Il était une fois
Quelque chose et moi
Quelque chose et moi

Un signe un espoir
Une image une voix
Quelque chose et moi
Quelque chose et moi

Et je n´étais plus seul au monde
Et je n´avais plus peur ni froid
Et je vivais chaque seconde
Et j´étais partout à la fois
Et une araignée de légende
Tisse le ciel de ma nuit
Comme je suis heureux dans ma chambre
Je ne sais pourquoi ni pour qui

Je vais et je viens
Mal et bien sous mon toit
Quelque chose et moi
Quelque chose et moi

Et je n´attends rien
Ni des dieux ni des rois
Quelque chose et moi
Quelque chose et moi

Comme un prisonnier s´émerveille
A regarder vivre une fourmi
J´ai reçu de bonnes nouvelles
Il paraît que ça va bien la vie

J´ai envie d´ouvrir la fenêtre
Pour me voir passer dans la rue
Savoir si j´ai changé de tête
Revoir ce que je ne suis plus

la la la la….

Et je n´étais plus seul au monde
Et je n´ai plus peur ni froid
La nuit ne sera plus très longue
Oui, je sais que tu existeras

Il était un soir
Il était une fois


I don’t want to lose these because – they matter.

Sooooo… Mum has been taken off the ventilator. She is breathing on her own and talking. She is giving everyone an earful. Apparently she even had ice cream and a drink of orange juice for dinner. Jim says that when she drank the juice it looked like it was the best thing she had ever tasted in her life. Nothing to drink for 14 days must have made her thirsty.

Good afternoon Lynne from a cold Parisian early morning.

Pat Smith So so pleased to hear this Kati, bet you and JIm are glad as well. Sending best wishes to you all, and to Lynne for a speedy recovery xxxooo

Kath Park God love her! She’ll have the whole ICU eating out of her hand in no time. I’m surprised we haven’t seen her on FB yet

Ellen Derek Wonderful!!! She is one tough old broad. Go, Lynne!

Kati Braithwaite Ha she did ask for her phone Kathryn Park but she is not allowed to have it. She is still a bit out if it. Giving everyone an earful us a nice way of putting it. She is being perfectly horrible. It’s hilarious though.
Emma Franklin Great news!!

Dale Caldwell Sending lots of love to her xxxxx

Joanne Pascoe Hello beautiful Lynne Sanders-Braithwaite, soon we can have a a bit of a chat…. so looking forward to hearing your voice. xxxxx

Anne-Marie Ladegaard Oh that’s wonderful to hear, Kati – especially that your mum is being perfectly horrible!!! Lol! I can just imagine her giving everyone a hard time! She must be getting better!!

Kati Braithwaite If this behavior continues I will have to hand over the visiting to someone else. Ha. She even gave the nurse the finger. Hmmm.

Cathy Gainge Lovely to hear Lynne is getting better. Lol at her antics

Elektra Macdonald Lol

Kath Park Hahaha! Well I suppose you would be pretty cranky after 2 weeks in a coma. She probably needs a meeting!

Kirsty Louise Bamback Oh that is so fantastic Kati!!! Not that I need to tell you, these behaviours are just like your mum Haha!! If it sucks she says so, if it’s shit, she voices her opinion. That’s one of the many reasons we love her so very much!!! She has 14 days of ‘this was shit’ to catch up on hehe!! Love to you all xo

Patricia Le Gardien It’s so wonderful ! Go Go Lynne !!!

Kati Braithwaite I think we’ll have to organise one when she’s up to it. Kathryn Park

Stacey Hearps Best news!

Kati Braithwaite They are just like Mum Kirsty Louise Bamback But this is extreme. She would even be ashamed at some of the things she’s been saying. So funny.

Kirsty Louise Bamback Hehe, at least she is saying them, that’s a massive leap forward xo

Kati Braithwaite I know. She can say whatever she wants!

Kirsty Louise Bamback Oh yes she can, I’m sure it’s all the best sounding music to your ears!! Rest well tonight hun xo

Lissa Howard Oh Kati that is such wonderful news. I love it, giving everyone an earful. Sounds like she’s got her spirit back and has some catching up to do in the talking department. Sleep well x

Donna Edwards That’s fantastic news. Luv & thoughts to u all

Mel Sheehy I’m so relieved that she has come back to you all. I’m looking forward to having her back on FB. I’ve missed her quirkiness. She always makes me smile. Much love

Alison Curry Welcome back Lynne Sanders-Braithwaite

Denise Head Double like!!!!!

Vanessa Gould-Nugent Such fantastic news. Welcome back Lynne.


SUSAN JOSIE AND LYNNEDonna Durbidge-Verrall Holy shit….it takes at least 2yrs to recover fully from any surgery but when your on life support it takes even longer…the meds they used to keep my dad alive & the huge blood transfusions they told my mum he would suffer huge psychosis & depression…which he did & in the end it was fishing out on the breakwall that finally turned him around so be kind & gentle on yourself. Your body has been through immense trauma & shock!!… look after yourself

Damn Lynne life is cruel sometimes but your a survivor but emotionally I can’t grasp how you coped & are still coping…take time & go slow but with the amount of meds used to keep your poor body going must’ve been immense & for such a long stint!!…ICU are scary scary places like being in another world!!…


And sometimes, I just want to be here alone in the Quietness. Sad and All. Thinking things over. The surf is softly in the background and I have Baez on and I am simply quiet.

Then I come across the Facebook memories from 2014.

 Quite a few of you have been asking for an update on Mum Lynne Sanders-Braithwaite Yesterday they stopped Mum’s sedation. We are still waiting for her to wake up. The pneumonia doesn’t appear to be getting worse but her lungs have been badly damaged. It is just a waiting game at this stage. Thanks again everyone

three days off facebook and look what happens? Sweety… I miss you: you’re lightness in the dark, your truth in the face of adversity and your joy of little big things; like flowers and sunsets and children and farm settings and good music. Please get better… please, please, please get better

Good Morning Princess Lynne of Raleigh. It’s taken me half the night to polish this bloody thing, but it’s done now and eagerly awaits sleeping beauty’s awakening.
I expect it to adorn your head at the next Raleigh Rumblings.
Thinking of you. Love you lots xo
Good Grief, I just found all of these. For a year I have been angry and suspicious and fearful of the people and then i find all these and am gobsmacked. Completely gobsmacked.
