Thank you all so much for the good wishes and the hugs - you are a lovely lot.  We will walk in there tomorrow just a little bit taller and positive as a result.

Hosta - fingers crossed for a good result with the ortho tomorrow, and for niece Verdun on Friday.  What a horrible thing to have built yourself up for a procedure, only to have it changed at the last minute......too stressful for words

night night all

Wow Kathy - what lovely plants - looks more like June than nearly November. I am coveting that verbascum

I love my soft top too  Don't leave the club Dove

Not been around for a while.  Turns out that lovely, fit and healthy Mr Chicky has some nasty heart problems.  Several hospital stays later (some involving sirens to arrive), and we now know he needs 3 stents.  First 2 are being done tomorrow, last one a few weeks later.  His heart is still good and helathy, just need to get the arteries sorted.  Have been oscilating between lots of positive thinking and sheer terror.

DD's story, and those others have told as a result, have given me much strength.  So roll on tomorrow for part 1
