    Thank you for all your messages of support recently - they really are much appreciated and mean a lot to my family and me.
    Ouch, I know that isn't the best thing to have right before christmas, but never the less glad you are OK and hope you have a great Christmas. On a further note, at least now you get to set the metal detectors off at air ports and look at the TSA and say " I am Wolverine!"..

    Glad to here you are closer to home. As for the TSA - I have two titanium hips and I always set off the scanners. Last time I kept telling them I wanted the really cute TSA guy to pat me down and do the wand thing. Let me just say they have no sense of humor!

    At least your guys know the titanium would set off the scanners. I was flying regularly just before 9/11 and for a few years after. Before the TSA guys took over security I think it was contracted by some security firm. I would have to tell them each time I went through the airport that the titanium in my wheelchair would probably set of the scanner. They didn't know whether it would or not and did mot seem to understand that the scanner was probably a bit narrow for my chair to pass through.

    After the TSA took over things were almost as spotty. I was flying every few months through the same airport. If the security person was someone who had seen me before they grabbed the wand right away. New people had to be told all over again.

    Nick, everything I would have wanted to say has been said by someone else here already, and much better. Wasn't sure I wanted to open this thread, but the positive vibes here make it a delight to read first thing on Christmas morning. Like peeking at a pile of Christmas presents under a stanger's tree. I don't know you, but I'm going to quietly dedicate my Chistmas Day to you and send more positive vibes your way. Best wishes for the New Year.

    (My iPad inserted "beat wishes" when I first tried to type "best wishes". Come to think of it, the iPad was right this time!)
    Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone, rejuvenated a discarded MacBook and, finally, Apple Watch. Happy camper.

    thanks again everyone for all your kind messages

    sit rep: still in hospital getting rehab and physio but hoping to get home the end of this week (after 5 weeks I've become institutionalised!!). the back surgery appears to be a complete success with all nerve pain in my legs now gone so I am (slowly) mobile with the aid of a frame and have a wheelchair waiting at home so I can at least get out and about.

    my little white macbook has been a Godsend in here - keeping me in touch with this wonderful, friendly forum and the outside world in general.

    my cancer is reducing in line with expectations so it looks like I'm on track for the stem cell work in April and the hopefully remission.

    again, thanks for all the kind messages of support - they really have helped.

    Really good to hear that, I'll bet you can't wait. Keep getting better, the prayers must be working.
    I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.

    That's great! I can't help but see the irony in the avatar you've been using since before this diagnosis.

    Absolutely brilliant news. Let's hope you have no more trouble.

    I have a friend over in England who seems to be hovering around the edges of Myeloma and the uncertainty of not knowing for sure is driving her nuts.

    All the best of luck for the future.
    Pete.
