Thanks guys, truly touched here.....
I now have a Frankenbelly, although not as dramatic as Micca's was last year..... They couldn't do the keyhole bit, so they had to make a bigger hole. Regrettably they did not take me up on the suggestion that they do some lipsuction whilst they were down there.
Stitches out on Sat, no lifting, stretching or rolling on the floor for 2-3 weeks, but I can now EAT!!!
First meal was strawberry icecream..... yum..... just a shame there was no chocolate flavour left.
Please keep ringing, I was very happy to get two calls last night, even though I was not very compos mentis, more sort of compost..... Food parcels of chocolate would be gratefully received!! (only kidding!)
Thanks again, all you wonderful people. I've already had an offer to rub it better, but that's another thread altogether!!
And thanks Manitas for posting this.. XXX
