Hello Chrissie - I don't think I've spoken to you before but I wish you and your husband well. What a dreadful time you have had but hopefully things will continue to improve and you are able to join in more often.

Chrissies. Sorry you had to post in the middle of an argument between me and OP on the same sex marriage thread.

We are both quite decent and nice people, but we strongly disagree at times. No malice, and I hope your post does not get lost in the melee. :-) :-)

Hopefully both of you will get a nice long period of better health now.
