Just came across this thread. Can't be certain if I've dealt with Sparrow or not, but the name is familiar, maybe just from browsing on RFF. Nevertheless, was sad to hear that he was unwell, and delighted to hear that he is improving. Makes me realize the sense of connection one can feel, even with people with whom we merely share an interest, but never meet.
Wishing him a quick and complete recovery !

Thank you for the news Joe - your second message - the one from the daughter - lifted my spirit when I read it.

Stewart, you know that you are one of my favorite people here, hang on! I'm awaiting your return soon!

I'm new here and don't know the person, but it's always great to hear that although someone's had a health scare, they are now on the road to recovery.

Awrabest, Stewart, from another stranger who feels he knows you a little, and esteems that "grouchy northern humour" and your sharp critical intellect (as well as your pics!)

Hope to see you back here soon

Well what can I say ... many thanks for all the kind wishes, for a reserved yorkshireman it's all been a bit embarrassing to be on the receiving end of such goodwill. However it was a great comfort to learn of everyones response through some very dark times a couple of weeks ago

I'm home now, recovering somewhat, and hope to improve further over the next few weeks. Sadly I'm stuck with the condition and I will have a reduced life expectancy because of it. I'll be reliant on prompt action when it flares up and palliative care the rest of the time to minimise the symptoms, I intend carrying on as close to normal as I can ... although I may well be more mellow online now you never know
