The character that died in Echo in the Bone was Ian Murray - from Tuberculosis - it was absolutely heartbreaking.
Having a much better day today - thanks for all of the encouragement. I was really feeling let down I must admit ( by the scale - not the people here!!) I have a few problems that can make moving very difficult and always painful, so to push my self to exercise and see little progress was ...poopy... I WANT MY GOLD STAR FOR EFFORT!!! sniffle...whine...sniffle.
Thanks again -have a great evening
