RE: [IPk] Need to go no mail - hospital



 Hi Helen



Sorry to hear that you are going through such a worrying time.  I hope you
get your gynae problems sorted out and things aren't as bad as you fear.
Then hopefully you will get round to sorting out that pump.  Good luck.
Come back and tell us how things are going.
