Although I don't post often, I read here almost daily, and so was thinking about you the other day--and wondering how you were doing. I'm certain that I speak for most, in that it's very nice to hear from you again, although I'm very sorry for all of the hardship you've been enduring. I certainly hope that your surgeries and infections are in the past. I know what it's like to be scared going into surgery, so I can really sympathize with you. However, it's great that you had, and have, such an attentive surgeon, as often times specialists aren't exactly known for their bedside manner. I bet it's nice to be home. Have you managed to put on a little weight?
I'm so sorry to hear that, in the midst of all this, you lost your father. It sounds like he was a great man.
All the best,
