Twelve months ago today, I had my nine day old baby boy asleep on my chest. We were on  a hospital trolley bed,  My mum on my left, my husband on my right. As the orderlies were wheeling us towards the theatre, I was crying and clutching to my baby, wondering if I was ever going to see him again. I remember the corridors and the stares of pity we got in the lift. I was about to endure  a seven and a half hour long brain surgery to remove a tumour from my optic nerve. My baby was taken away by my husband and we had a teary see you later. I was connected to copious amounts of lines and machines and wheeled into surgery.  A mask was put over my face and I counted back from 10 staring at the halo of surgery lights,  My lights went out and that was my last coloured memory.
