Hi Allison and Chanteylass, it's cosy in here!
Allison, I've never heard of the Da Vinci type of surgery, but it sounds so much better. I hope your recovery is a good one - here's some dark chocolate coated apricots - I get them from the shop around the corner, I hope they help.
I'm glad that 'Spaw is so much better, except he keeps smashing me in Words With Friends (a Facebook scrabble-type game). So the only medical condition I have in here is PTSD - Post Traumatic Scrabble Disorder - it makes me a little wordy and linguistically tangled.
wishing you a happy mudrecovery
