Thanks guys. All that suffering seems so long ago now and I can't picture myself having gone through it but I did.....somehow.
Pauline. Youv'e been on this site for some time now and i'm guessing all is ok with you. I should sign on more often really, and thanks for your comment Pete though I really think it was simply my human instinct to win over my Cancer that saw me through it in the end.
I wish you both well till next time
