  • So glad to hear your daughter is on the road to recovery! My very best wishes for the future treatment xxxx

  • My daughter is 25 and has a 9 month old baby. I can't begin to imagine how it is not being able to cuddle them.

    Main thing is that she is now on the road to recovery - just think by Xmas 2013 there will be a toddler loving Christmas and a fit and well Mummy doing all the Australian Christmas things ... it takes time, love and patience in the coming months but you'll all get there.

    Best wishes and good luck to you all

  • So glad that the op went well for your daughter. She will know how much you love her even though she is so far away. Yes technology is great when it comes to keeping in touch with family who go abroad. My son is in NZ and Skype has been a godsend! Will keep my fingers crossed that all continues to go well for her.

  • thankyou you are all so kind xx

  • That's good news that your daughter's operation went well and that she is on the road to recovery. I can't imagine how hard it must be for you and your husband being over here and your daughter being in Australia. You sound loving and supportive and your daughter knows this, sometimes distance is only a heartbeat away, you are with her in her heart and I am sure she feels your presence.

    Try to take it as it comes, one step at a time. Your daughter is in the best hands and I am sure they will monitor her every step of the way.

    Thank goodness for technology, at least you can have some form of contact and "see" her if you have Skype,

    Wishing you and your hubby and daughter all the very best, and sending you a hug. We are here for you and please keep us informed as to how she is progressing. Bless you! (((x)))
