With a little help from our friends, continued

Dear Whaleoilers

I am back home after major surgery, which is mostly successful, with some elements of ?wait and see?.? I want to thank all of you who have contributed so generously towards my well being over the last couple of months.? I must report that my finances are back under control, my fridge and freezer full of food and warm rugs, books to read and other treats have provided me with comfort.??

But most comforting of all has been your friendship and support.? Being sick, old and alone can be very scary, but I did not feel like that.? Your outpouring of caring was like a warm cloak around me and I never felt alone.? I felt comforted by the WO community, by your generosity and kindness, by your thoughtfulness and consideration.

Thank you all.
