Thank you all for your kind comments under the previous posts. They really do help with the morale.
I've just got out of UCH. I'm a bit sore, which is to be expected, but otherwise I feel amazingly well. It's making me realise how under the weather I was pre-op.
Anyway, I'm now tentatively looking forward to a bit of decent health. No doubt blogging will resume shortly here or over at the astonishing webby phenomenon that is The Dabbler.
