    As some of you will know, my son was involved in a serious car accident in Australia in January this year, which unfortunately resulted in him losing his lower right leg.

    I would just like to say that he is doing wonderfully, and he will finally be arriving home in England on June 4th, he will be going into hospital for a while, but then he will be coming home.

    I haven't seen him since November 2007, so I am so looking forward to seeing him.

    I'd like to thank everyone for their good wishes, kind thought's, prayers, PM's and e mails, while all this has been happening, I appreciate it so much, thanking you all from the bottom of my heart.

    MODERATOR'S - My apologises, this should have gone into the Off Topic Section, could you transfer it please, thanking you.

    That's good news Donnie!! You must be relieved that he's finally coming home - with you to look after him I'm sure he'll be well on the road to recovery.

    And you're over 4st lighter to boot - he's going to be very surprised!!

    Unfortuately due to illness I couldn't travel to Australia to see him, but my DH spent a month over in Perth with him, and I have been speaking to him every day, but it's not the same as a hug.....

    Thank you.

    I do hope your son made a full recovery, your arms must have been itching to hold him, I have 5 months worth of hugs to let go when I see him....and quite a few tears as well I'm sure.
