Whoopie, i have got my date,17th may. I rang up the hospital this afternoon. The lady was very nice and helpful. I have told her i would take a cancellation if one comes up.

I am soooo relieved to know things are happening. I can start to get things organised. I already have most of my case ready. Thats a load of my shoulders.

Sylvi. xx
