Very quick update.....

I have been in hospital since 1st Feb and was finally allowed home yesterday, 17th Feb....Update to follow but will have to be once I have found some energy from somewhere.

For now it's enough to say that the NHS have taken very great care of me over the past two and a half weeks, and right now I'm back at home being taken care of by my lovely Rab.

Thanks for all the messages, I'll get around to responding at some point.

Much luv xxXxx

  8. Hi Carole good to see your presence back online i had been wondering how you were. I find it interesting too to realise that your husband is Algerian, mine is Moroccan.

  9. Thinking of you and family Carole... Sending you all of my energy in hopes you catch some.

  10. Very dear Carole,

    I am so very sorry to read your post. I have not been on here for a while due to my mother's hospitalization. You are one of those great people out there who gave me great support and morale. I always kept you on my mind and think of you often. You are so strong and wonderful, I believe you will beat the time which doctors gave you. You will have more years with your family. My heart is with you and wish you happy days now and forever.!! Lots of love. Soley
