It seems my wife was updating the family while I was in the hospital. Both sides of the family were helping us fix up the house to sell, cleaning up, and helping to pack up before we sold it. Two months of emails, I thought we'd lost them, but my sister in law had saved them all, and sent them back to Kath after our computer crashed.
Upon finding them, and reading what went on while I was on my back brought a tear to my eye, so that's why I have decided to share them with you. I'll just post the main emails, and leave the rest out.
