Parents are great things. Often over looked occasionally undervalued  
but  _always_  there when you need them!

Not a problem for anyone I am sure. We can manage.

It is truly great to hear from you. When Tim broke the news several  
weeks ago I think it is true to say that hundreds if not thousands of  
people were shocked and distressed to hear of your plight. I am sure  
these same people will be delighted that their well wishes, in what  
ever accent, language and faith have been responded to.

Keep getting stronger and as hard as it might be, don't try to do too  
much too soon. It really is not worth it for any one. Number one  
priority must be you and no one else. I am sure your mother will  
agree you are not too old to get your bottom smacked if you misbehave  
and mothers always know (Or so mine keeps telling me!) :-).

Kindest regards
