It's arrived. :grin:
It's landed. :grin:
It's here. :grin:
I've had the phone call from the hossy. :grin:
I've had an MOT at docs and I'm all clear. :grin:

New operation date Wednesday 6th July 2011 …….and guess what, six (6th) is my fave number! :grin:

I'm now in quarantine with an 'X' painted on the front door to keep folks away so if you add to this thread please use anti-bacteria gel/rubber gloves and wear a surgical mask. :lol::lol::lol:

YIPEEEEEEE ! e035.gif

    Hey there! Brilliant!

    I'm definitely germ-free. Alcohol does sterilise, doesn't it? (No, not yet, but in the fridge for later.)

    Couldn't be happier, Legs. Yes I could. With the current state of mine, can I have your old one, please?

    Hi Linda :grin:

    YAY :grin::grin::grin: So happy for you. That is not too long for you to wait and if you become a hermit, scrub and boil your food and drink and wear surgical gloves, you will be fine. I wish you all the very best and shall look in every day for news from you.

    Hi Linda
    Great news.............................. :lol::lol::lol:
    I know you will avoid all those nasty infection,we certaintly don't want a repeat of last time (I remember when I thought I had a cold coming 2 days before my op!!).
    Will make a note of that date and post nearer the time.

    Thank you Del, Tracey, Elna and Ron. :grin:

    I received the confirmation letter today, just a formality as it was already arranged over the phone.

    I don't even have to have my MRSA swabs done again - thank goodness :oops:

    Off to dust the cobwebs from my already packed bags :grin:
