Thanks to everyone who's sent good wishes for Ms P and for her recovery. If you'd like a to know about a bit about what she's been through she's written a brief and moving post here describing the development of her illness and what it was like to adapt to it at school.
The piece is only about her Crohn's Disease, not her severe allergies or any of the many other health problems she so amazingly deals with. I wish you could all meet her, I am permananetly inspired by her abilty to remain positive. I think many people in her position would just feel really bitter and angry but she is so determined to make the most of everything and to really live life to the full. Even the weekend before her surgery she was on stage acting in a Pantomime despite being in a lot of pain and having very little energy. Yet when you see her acting, you'd never know because she fills the role with such enthusiasm.
