Nefret, happy birthday!

Thanks! I got my library to order some Chadwick novels. (They will live on my bookshelf when I have the funds, but I've been wanting read them for a long time.)

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Well, my best thing is that my surgery went fine, they took out everything that should go, and though there was more ick than expected, it wasn't malignant.
And the next best thing is the wonderful pain meds modern society has devised.
Back to bed to sleep them off.

That's good news, MLE - glad to hear it!

My good things are still very much entwined with the possibly bad things, none of which I can even discuss online just yet, so life's a long trail of confusion, uncertainty, stress, and hope. But most of all, gratitude.
