FBG/Viv Not really the place BUT..

.... as FBG/Viv works mainly on this board, and rarely visits Chat, I thought I would let her fellow helpers on here know that she suffered a mini-stroke on Tuesday.

Fortunately, the scan has showed that she has not suffered a brain bleed but is a warning to her to take things easy for a while. Knowing her, that is going to be easier said than done!

She is now home from hospital with instructions that she must return if she has a similar occurrence.

Viv is a great researcher with a talent for piecing things together and has helped numerous members to scale their 'brick walls' with encouragement, sensitivity, patience and humour!

I have been grateful, on many occasions, for the way she has guided me through the minefields of a census form.

Hopefully, she will be able to return to her precious hobby soon.'s wishing her a speedy return to full health............... <3

I'm sure she'll be whizzing back here on her broomstick before very long!

If you're reading this Viv - stop it and get some rest. xx

Don't worry MC - she can't be reading this or you would hear the HUGE slap flying across in Cynthia's direction :-D - You know how she just hates people saying lovely things about her ;-)

She well deserves them though and I also send my very best wishes for her speedy recovery <3

No 'hugs' though - I am not that brave ;-) :-D

you are missed on here FBG so get well soon, you have helped me often over the years

at least when you are sat in front of a computer you are not whizzing round doing other things

don't go shouting at people for saying nice things TOO soon, we don't want you having a relapse

(((((((( <3<3)))))))

Just a quick update.

FBG seems to be improving daily but is still under orders to rest and take things easy.



Dea Report 22 Feb 2013 15:20

Thanks for the update Cynths - SO glad she is doing O.K. !!!
