    Default Is there a problem at AOS?

Everything crossed, and prayers and thoughts for Sue and you Adrian.
    Completely agree Alex, AOS is for me a great forum where the majority of threads are friendly and constructive with sincerity, and builds friendships.

    Thank you for you kind words for me and Sue.

    So yesterday afternoon Sue came home with a bag pills to last 2 weeks. Sue has to return for blood tests in 2 weeks to check no signs of infection and liver and kidneys working properly, they will get results which we will have to wait for.

    We saw the lady consultant surgeon who will be seeing her in 4 weeks and has pencilled in a big operation on Sue in 12 weeks. If the histology results are not good then the op will be brought forward. But she is hopeful it will be good news.

    Sue is as you can imagine feeling pretty rough still, but is happy to be home. It is lovely to have her here with me again.

    Thank you all for your kind words and wishes. I donít think there is much wrong with AoS
