"Truly, it is the indescribable sweetness of contemplation which you give to those who love you. In this you have shown the tenderness of your charity, that when I had no being you made me; and when I strayed away from you, you brought me back again to serve you and commanded me to love you." The Imitation of Christ

Thanks for the prayers and good wishes. My biggest fear - the general anaesthetic - didn't happen. The anaesthetist, on hearing how I react, was keen for me to have a spinal block. This is a major blessing. I shall blog more when I get home, tomorrow morning. All went well.
