    Eileen, I should have sent you some of my chicken soup--it's been known to comfort and cure!

    From all the happy responses, do you get the idea you were sincerely missed, and sincerely loved here?

    Yes I most certainly do Jane and I'm so grateful to have friends like you all. I really missed you and felt, at one stage, that I'd never get back here again. I lost a lot of weight as I couldn't eat for the first fortnight but, when I could, chicken soup was on the menu. :smt045 Poor Ian was beside himself thinking I wasn't going to pull through. I'm so lucky to have him.

    Eileen, I am so glad you are back and so so sorry you have been this sick. It sounds very scary, being so sick without a clear diagnosis. It sounds like some bizarre type of virus. Your poor husband too, he must have been so scared.

    The thing that I missed most was your cheery upbeat voice...positive, encouraging to all of us.

    Everyday since your husband posted on your illness, I would check to see if our Eileen had returned. The one week I stayed away, and here you are! I cannot tell you how happy I am that you pulled through your horrible ordeal.........Forgive me my eyes are raining. Welcome home!

    Sorry to have worried you so much Licenter. I'm feeling emotional too knowing how much you all think of me here. :crying:

    Warm thoughts from me to you Eileen. Having been gone myself, I had no idea that you have been ill. So sorry to hear, and it sounds like it was rather frightening. I sure hope you have a full recovery, Garden Stew would not be the same without you!

    Well now, you've had a time of it for certain. Glad to see you have been able to return. While I don't post often, I do check in a couple of times a week. Been waiting for news of you. This is the best kind of news. Do what you're told by your doctors. Sometimes they even know what they're talking about. Rest and recover now. Time enough for chatting later.
