Thank you so much for your support and best wishes following my operation. I have been very touched by all the cards and messages. I am on the mend. It is only just over 2 weeks since the operation, and everyday I can do more. Lessons will resume as soon as I am able. It was a big operation, but seems to have been a success. So hopefully recovery will be the end of the problem! Thank you once again for all the support, it has been amazing.
