    I don't frequent the 'health forum' so I had no idea. I am truly shocked and I feel so selfish for only thinking about my own problems, which are nothing compared to what others are going through.

    I am so so so very sorry to hear that GL, poppies and Lara's husband are suffering.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all for a very speedy recovery.

    GL you have been so supportive to me and others, everyone is thinking of you.xxxxxxx

    Almighty and Everlasting God, hear us on behalf of GL, Poppies and Lara's husband who are sick, for whom we humbly beg the help of your mercy, so that they are restored to health. Through Christ our Lord. Amen

    I know not everyone believes in God, however, I believe in the power of prayer and I hope no one minds.

    Bless you for that @digoryvenn.:D Certainly in my husband's case, he has always firmly believed in the 'power of prayer' and that has contributed hugely to his positive mindset.

    Well, my family have seen both sides of cancer news in the last few days. My sibling now has a diagnosis of prostate cancer. His daughter visited her oncologist to be told she is three years in remission and cancer is unlikely to reappear. She is obviously thrilled. As she says, you couldn’t make it up.

    Thoughts with everyone affected. GL, hope to hear you are feeling a bit better soon.

    Thank you all for your kindness and good wishes.

    I am home at last, but very very weak at the moment so wont be posting much till I feel stronger. Recovery from the transplant is a long haul, though it all went well.

    Good to see Poppies here. She's had a torrid time of it, but has now had her lymph node surgery and the news afterwards was very good.
