We are so happy you have come through this medical problem well.
YOu are right, animals do know how to help us just by their presence!
There are many carer centres in Ausrtalia where volunteers bring their pets to spend time with the residents/patience..
It does everyone a world of good!
The patients, the residents, the staff adn families all benifit from the pets visits!
Perhaps this is somerthing you might like to do in the future - I know I would love to do this sort of thing myseolf one day!
please continue to get better and know that I will hold you in my thoughts and prayers,
