Family stuff

Just a very quick update. Some lovely people have shown concern about my daughter's health issues and impending spinal surgery. Well, her operation was this morning. Naturally it was a bit of a twitchy morning for my husband and myself but we kept ourselves busy with Christmas cooking. It wasn't helped by the fact that my husband had not been able to find out what time the surgery was scheduled for when he dropped her off at 7am. Then at 1pm she called on her mobile phone to say the op had been done at 9am. She sounded a bit groggy, naturally, but so pleased to have the procedure behind her. We pick her up tomorrow and are all looking forward to a quiet but lovely Christmas. Thanks to those who sent good wishes, prayers, and positive vibes. *Very* much appreciated.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. Very much appreciated. Our daughter is now home - they don't keep people in hospital any longer than is necessary these days it seems - rather sore with limited mobility, but very very glad to have her surgery behind her now.

I am so pleased that everything has gone well - it is terrible when all you can do is wait!
I hope that your daughter makes a swift and full recovery and that you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

Just stopping by again to wish you and yours a happy and a healthy New Year, Cath. Hope your daughter continues to recover.

Cath said...

Thanks, Nicola. Happy New Year to you too!

Lifeonthecutoff: Thank you so Much for popping by again. My daughter is doing really well. Over the last couple of days she seems to have turned the corner and is suddenly in less discomfort and is more mobile. Definitely regaining her independence. I really haven't had time to blog or visit my regular blogs but am hoping that I may be able to get back to it by the end of the week. I miss you all a lot. Happy New Year to you and to everyone else here.
