Hello everyone, Even though it has taken me so long to post, I would like you to know your comments and best wishes have been getting through to me on a daily basis (Stewy has been printing them up for me ) The support that the Netrider community has given me has been overwhelming and amazing!!!! I have been really lucky to be surrounded by my family and friends and their support has been fantastic. I could not be in (and maintain) this positive frame of mind with out the support being shown. Its very meaningful for me to read everyones genuinely heartfelt comments and i cant communicate strongly enough how much I appreciate all the kind words and well-wishes, its heartwarming. If anyone would like to visit me I would love to see them. I am at the Austin Hospital (Heidelberg) Spinal Unit on Level 3 in Room 14 Regular visiting hours are 11am to 8pm UPDATE (from the horses mouth!) Last night I had a shitty night, uncomfortable and not enough pain killers, i was restless and in pain all night and for the first time this morning I finally had time to look at the iPod properly and discovered how much had already been loaded onto it, and there are over 2000 songs, almost 50 movies, and all stuff I really REALLY like!! it has been invaluable. In fact i got a little emotional and was sobbing to myself (call them tears of joy) this morning listening to the music when the doctor came in. Thinking I was in pain he asked me what was wrong, to which i replied, "I'm just so happy because i have the best friends any soul on earth could possibly hope for... I have the most amazing support network and I'm just now realising exactly how lucky I am to have these, the best friends in the world"....so thank you all. I can't thank you all enough, you've got no idea how good you have all been for my mental health!!! I want say a special thank you to Adam (Stewy) who has been at my bedside every single day since the accident, and has been updating me daily as to any comments from Netrider. He has been simply amazing through all of this. i also want to say a huge thanks to Foxy for arranging the whole i-pod thing, it was such a thoughtful gift, simply ideal. i love it, and i still cry every time I use it!!! And thanks also go out to all of you who contributed to this. I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING FROM ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah, a few of you posted that they weren't sure if you'd met me or not before (eg Vic - Duh!!! Ya GOOSE) here are some pics of me so you can put a face to the name: http://s61.photobucket.com/albums/h60/Riot__Grrrl/?action=view¤t=1162261960.pbw Lenna's Hospital Birthday Bonanza Monday 13th November If anyone would like to come and wish me happy birthday and indulge in some lamington cake this Monday between 6.00 pm and 7.00 pm that would be lovely.
