Early September I go into hospital for removal of my appendix.Wait over 12 hours for the operation by which time it has burst.Nearly kills me. Come back home,a few days later my car is vandalised with grey primer,white paint and other assorted detrius.A message is left on my bonnet and rear windsreen saying "cee you next Thursday".You can all work that four letter word out. Only benefit I am a lot slimmer But I cant photograph just yet.Its still painful

So was this a random attack or a personal one, and if the latter, what provoked it?

Things can only get better. Have you upset somebody? Sounds to me like somebody with a grievance rather than simple vandalism. Did you upset a model?!?!

To quote Richard Bach "Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't."

You're still here & fighting, the ones who had a worse month aren't & can't comment.

Poor Ironblokeman and Edt , my heart goes out to you. Some people are under the illusion that success and money are the the most important things in life, they are wrong. The only really important thing is good health and the moment illness or tragedy takes place then we realize that we have not appreciated fully how lucky we have been up to then. I wish you both speedy recovery and do take time to get over the trauma before rushing headlong back into the maelstrom of modern living. Take time out to relax and recover. Good luck to both of you.

Thanks for the comments folks both personal and humerous.I really do enjoy being alive now.
There is a niggle in my mind that it was personal.Cars parked next to mine were not touched.A friend's chip shop was covered in racist graffiti the same night.
