Thanks for the update, Rowan, I _was_ wondering! Glad you're continuing to lose the weight - and hopefully it will soon be easier to exercise, once you're back to 100% after the surgery!
Wowwwweeee! Didn't realise you'd managed to have such a rough time - while on vacation, yet! Hoping you're much, much better now!
And you know what? I just decided Rome is going to be MY next destination - hopefully in Feb 2009 ... just a few months away ... mmmmmmm! :) Yes, I happen to absolutely love Italian food - hmm, no, there isn't ANY kind of food I don't absolutely love. :)
