    Aha great news, all seems good….
    Be sure to get as much rest as you can while you can, your be uncomfortable for a little while, tender.
    Sleeping with a pillow by your side will stop you rolling over:)

    Otherwise lets get you home, and begining your journey…
    Wishing you great sucess, glad to hear your ok…

    All the very very best

    Thankyou for posting the good news so early John, came on here especially to check your progress before work, so glad to hear all went well for you and you are up and showered already.

    As Buzz says you will be sore for a while and the wind pain is the worst but you are right the peppermint tea is a god send. We’ll gladly move up on the losers bench for you and can’t wait to follow your progress. Don’t run before you can walk, take time to recover and don’t rush the food stages.

    Take care on the journey home and keep us updated.

    Lots of love

    Thanks for ther update John. You are doing brilliantly.

    As for the wind – don’t be polite: let it go!!

    Everything will be new and exciting…and exhausting, so make sure you get plenty of rest whilst you can (like Buzz said.) I’m so excited for you.

    Hi John,
    Glad everything went well, as Buzz says take it easy for a while and rest when you can, don’t try to run before you can walk.
    Take care.
