Houston - we have contact! :lol:

Received a letter this morning. Mixed news naturally - since her fall she says she's had a lot of aggro and feels a bit like a salmon struggling upriver and her telephone/online comms are U/S basically. She sounds fairly positive on the whole although she's going in for another op on 1st October (still with the fistulas but this is hopefully to sort them permanently). Her cousin Georgie is coming up to look after her for a week after the op.

She says she misses everyone and to send you all hugs and kisses. She hopes to get back on the forum when she can after her op - she still has to use the library one for now and she's not had a lot of spare time for that as she's been promoted in her charity job (Save the Children) and they keep sending her to seminars. Says she's getting to be an expert on Travelodges and now knows why they're so inexpensive :shock: Also that she's grown gills and webbed feet they've had so much rain up there... :o

That's it more or less - she says the forum keeps her sane (there's a first :P ) so we've not got rid of her and will see her again once she's got things a bit more settled. :mrgreen:

Pass on my good wishes too please jan. It's nice to hear meer has still got her sense of humour and hopefully will be a lot better after the op.

Hugs, Meers! I'm glad your cousin is coming to visit, at least you won't be alone! :D

Thank you for posting this, Jan! It's good to hear from her!

Oh my dog!!!! I AM piesick!!!!!

Haydee and I were only talking about Meer ... because of the very special connection Meer and H have on 2nd Nov...

Thank you for letting us know Jan. Bit of a mixed bag of news. Good and bad.

Gee I hope this op works.

MEER! WE MISS YOU SOOOOOOOOO. MUCH.

Please hurry.

Jan has started letting her dogs lie on the sofa... but only so she can ask them...
"And how do you feel about that?"

Dotsie is on her way to becoming the resident cat... sorry, bunny lady.

Bouncy has opened her own "business" and is offering cut price rides.. but only if they remove their shoes first

Batty..... well.... crazy as a loon.. no change there.

And Hayden sends her love. Xxx

Got a postcard from Meers today! :D A really pretty one, with a cat on it and sheet music, it's gorgeous! Thanks, Meer! :D

It's basically what Jan said: she's doing charity, which is keeping her busy and she still has computer problems, but she misses us all lots and she hopes she'll be back as soon as possible!

Finishing line: "MEERKATS RULE OK!!!!" :lol: :lol:

HUGS, Meers! Hope you'll be back on here soon! Image

Meerkat Calling. Meerkat Calling! Have eluded Mongooses and Cousin Georgie (aka Black Swan...I do wish she'd register) has taken me out for my first excursion since the op.

I have so missed you all (true) and when I got my lovely present I cried as Georgie will attest. Sorry I haven't been in touch but the Op (another fistula) arrived out of the blue. (I am currently sitting very gingerly on the library chair!!!) Feeling a bit down but should be ok in a week or two.

Thank you for the lovely card a few pages back! Excellent. I have missed Bouncy and Jan and Pip and Tony and Brocc and... EVERYBODY and I'd also like to thank ...hmm? What? Oh, sorry got a bit confused there! I hope to be about a lot more soon.

The fall has not done me any lasting damage but the two 'heavies' who picked me up and set me right I would have crossed the road to avoid, but that's life innit, (never judge a book by the cover unless it says Terry Pratchett) ? However, the person who kicked my stick out from under me will feel the sharp side of my tongue if I ever find out who it was!

Now I just have to get over the fistula op. Apparantly if they had removed it all I would have been left incontinent (I like travelling abroad) so they only removed what they could. Then I came round in recovery ( a good thing) and they said I may have to go back in for another op on the fistula but I had to wait for midnight as there was a laperotomy on the go. Finally the surgeon did a bit of painful prodding and I had to stay over until thursday when I was allowed out so long as I had painkillers at home. So it's back to daily visits by the nurse and wincing whenever I have to get up or sit down.

Many, many thanks for the pressie. It's been a long time since I received flowers and chocolates so I will always think of all you lovely people as I eat the flowers and arrange the chocolates in the vase.

TTFN, SIMPLES! Mwah! Mwah! :violin:

Back soon!
