    Hello there I love to catch up with you. I have been on dialysis for 4 yrs and am in the RAH as I have received a new kidney. Love all the things you and Rod bring us. Those flowers and choccys are a work of art. Iam sure that I would have loved the opera. Perhaps one day soon we will start to travel NY is onthe list! Bye for now Adele…….not the singer

    • Thank you for listening Adele and congratulations on your new kidney! I hope you get to celebrate Easter in the RAH with a generous share of chocolates. Look after yourself – New York will be here whenever you’re ready…
