    The thing is Di, that you made the right decision at the time with all the facts at your disposal. It was the right thing to do and you obviously gave it a great deal of thought.

    You always say that things happen for a reason. I dont know what the reason is but I trust your sentiments.

    Perhaps your neighbour should walk in your shoes for a day or two

I also know that I'm usually very thick skinned and I don't get upset easily and then to add insult to injury they go and have a bloody wine glitch without me I wish you could have seen dh face when he walked in my hospital room and saw all the wine, gosh I've put him through it these last coiple of weeks, he is a saint

    Thanks bubbs I've also got far too much time on my hands to dwell on these things.
    TM I don't know what the reason is yet either but one thing it has taught me is how hard the staff in the NHS work they honestly go well above and beyond their call of duty. I'm back there on Tuesday so I'm going armed with lots of thank you gifts.
    It has also made me want to give something back, I don't know what it will be yet and I can no longer donate blood or bone marrow but dh is going to do that on my behalf, as I said he is a saint. I definitely want to do something though, it was just two years since I did the charity breakfast, I will wait for a sign for my calling. In case anyone wonders no I haven't been drinking I think I'm just slightly emotional, probably time to go to sleep
