Wishing you speedy full recovery.

Yep, In the four years we have been here, my husband has required two operations, I too was diagnosed with a minor heart problem, resolved now thankfully but on medication.

I personally think that many people run fast and loose with their health cover, with phrases like, I've never been to the Drs or I'm usually very fit and that old favorite, I'll go back to UK

We were all fit until we weren't head-on car accident, falling over, how the &$#$&* you going to go back to the UK
