Update; day twelve

Hello Friends,

I thought I should write a little update so that everyone can know how I'm doing.  Surgery was long, almost five hours, but everything went well and after one night in the hospital I was discharged.  I am very lucky that my mum and sister live close by and have been an amazing help to me during my recuperation, as well as Robert of course who is my rock.  I've said to a few people it will be quite a while before I am myself again but each day is better than the last and I can see light at the end of the tunnel :-)

Kip and Archie snuggle me back to health

I would like to thank most sincerely all those who left encouraging comments on my blog, send cards, emails, facebook messages, posted about my circumstances or just thought about me in a positive way.  I cannot begin to express how this lifted me during low moments and how deeply touched I was by these expressions of friendship, each and every gesture of kindness has been very precious to me!

love to all,
cat xx
