Thank you for the prayers, the wishes, the good vibrations, the healing energies, the concern and warmth that so many people sent my way.
Thank you also for all the phone calls, SMSes, PMs, and emails that friends received on my behalf, and which I hope to reply to personally soon.
There's a lot else I have to be thankful for. And believe you me, I know that I am a very, very lucky chap in very, very many ways.
I'll come back to tell you about that soon, I hope. First, I must concentrate on making sure all those good wishes don't come to naught. By getting better, stronger, fitter, maybe, if the stars are right, just a leetle bit more sensible.
Don't hold your breath about the last bit.
