I hope you will indulge me with a very personal post.
May I thank all the kind friends, family and parishioners who have given me all their best wishes, kept me in the prayers and much more. I take great comfort in all these prayers and Masses being said for my intention.
I am going into hospital tomorrow and hope to be out 7-10 days from then providing there are no complications.
It is quite major surgery but the doctors tell me it is a relatively "easy" one too.
I am sure Our Lord and Our Lady will give me the strength I need. The operation is on the birthday of our beloved departed former Parish Priest, Fr Charles Higham SJ, so I am sure that has a meaning known in heaven.
Please remember me in your prayers in these coming days, and I hope to be posting on this blog again very soon.
