Oh, bad news indeed! I'm sure I will be among the first of many many UUers to wish her the best and a speedy recovery. After all, her 'ukuleles are going to be quite lonely without her!

Excuse me? Perhaps I got the context wrong but don't see that is in good taste, either to Joey (ie the point of this thread) or in respect of those affected by the trouble in the UK at the moment...

See, you have to get better and out of there soon, see, because there's a whole world of lurkers who will go into Daily Ukulele withdrawal just as soon as they miss one, and it's only going to get worse, see, so you have to be strong and work with the drugs and the care givers, see, in order to avert a global Daily Ukulele withdrawal catastrophe. See?

Her posting of the daily uke got me to learn Grand Old Flag, folks love it. This one's for you Joeybug http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHOS6yi3C6w

Thank you and God's speed to recovery!!!

Joey, this is your fault. I'm breaking my rule about coming here or worse, logging in, or even worse, _posting_ - all because of you! I hope you're satisfied with yourself young lady! When you get better, you are SO grounded!

She was at the beginning stages of having ... something, when we were last chatting on the twitters. It was that stage where you're sick but don't want to admit you're sick. I'm glad she's getting treated, worried that she got sick. :(

I haven't had time for the twitters, but then I checked and didn't see her there, did some math, and headed here to check. There should always be a DU. :(

Anyway Joey, get well soon. I won't DM on Twitter so that your inbox gets loaded up, I'll just post here so that maybe someone prints this thread and you can see that everyone really is rooting for you. Go get better!

Wow..I didn't realise I made as big as an impression as this, nor that people liked the DU as much as they did...

So, I'm home, touched by the amount of comments on this thread, there were a few close calls, one closer than any other and it did look for a moment that I wasn't going to make it, but I rallied deep and I managed to get to where I am now, which is home.

I didn't get the PICC line in the end, it became a close call, but then I got really really sick and I couldn't have withstood all that was needed, so I have holes and bruises from my feet to my shoulders where they stuck me so many times.

I took Hoa with me, and strummmed a few times, as I was in a private room I didn't really draw much attention, but one nurse asked me to play something and she seemed to like it :D

Well, I'm gonna get back into resting since I'm not 100% yet I've only been home about an hour but wanted to keep you all up to date, Thanks Rae for posting this and for everyone who has commented, you've made me realise that fighting to win this battle is worth it :D

Joey
