I am very emotional about this post so please bear with me. I have decided to write this because I think that people should know how a little bit of help to someone can make so much difference to their lives. I am not writing this for personal glory or self gratification and I will NOT reply to any comments made on this post because I will just well up and say something of nothing. Here is the story.
A few weeks ago I was commenting in a blog and this lady butted in. I had a few things to say which were not bad but just enough for me to email her to apologise. Over time and a few emails I found out that her old computer would not let her work on her photographs which was a hobby of hers. I didn’t think much about it at the time. It also emerged over time that she had serious medical problems and her daughter was not too well either.
She told me that on the 10th September 2012 that she was going in for a biopsy. Her life was in a total mess. She was in constant pain all the time but had to carry on with normal day to day affairs. I had to help her in some way. But what. Luckily I had a spare $500 and asked her to go around the stores in the USA and pick out a computer and I would pay for it with my Spanish credit card. Simple, yes? No!!
It seems that the US government has cracked down on foreign payments in US stores and I could not pay with my Spanish credit card. Well, that is what I was told at the time!! So the lady went home, searched the internet and found a computer which could be collected at a local store. I went on line the night before her biopsy and with great difficulty I bought her the computer she wanted. The forms I had to fill in online would not allow me to use my Spanish address but a special Houston Texas address which I assume computers there checked me out. In a matter of hours, after her biopsy, she collected the computer and this is the full email which I received from her last night. (I will NOT reply to any comment.)

He said taking out uterus best option BUT, with other medical issues, stuff would fall out and has to be fixed before I could get rid of the baby holder.
