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

I was so happy when I saw a comment from you on FB, and reading this has made my day! Cat, you have been in my thoughts every single day, several times a day. Remember, you only get a chance to heal right once so take it easy, treat yourself right, and know that your only job is to recover. Fully!

xx Trish

I am amazed how quickly you were able to leave hospital - a lot of this I'm sure is due to your state of mind and determination. You have Robert and the boys to take care of you and we are sure they will be excellent nurses.
Take care Cat.
Luv Hannah, Lucy and Mum Sue xx xx xx

Cat, it's wonderful to see an update from you.

WE LOVE YOU CAT!!! Glad you are starting to feel better and the boys are taking such good care of you!

Simba said...

You have been in my thoughts and prayers. It staggers me the way people are released from hospital so quickly after such major surgery, but perhaps for the better, though hard on you and family who are helping you either way. Glad to see the boys are helping to give you some love and cuddles and keep you warm.

The Mom, with purrs from Simba and Audrey as well.

Annuk said...

I am glad to read that your recovery is progressing. I've been checking your blog but of course didn't expect to find anything right away. I read the note Fuzzy Tales wrote about your progress a week or so ago.

I am surprised that you were discharged from the hospital after only one night following such a long operation, but I guess that's the way it's done these days.

I wish you good luck in your recovery and am glad that you have a wonderful spouse, family and, of course, pets, to speed you on your way to full health.
