Oh poor you Steve. You don't have to fish for sympathy - you can have it in spades. Not a very nice way to spend your birthday but you'll have to be like the Queen and have a second one when you're fit and well.
Get well soon Steve.
At least you won't get the same pressie next year
Get well soon Steve! ((hugs))
Looking forward to seeing you back - fully recovered and ready for spring!
Just think how much worse it would have been if you'd been taken ill in April!
Oh gosh Steve!! What a way to spend your birthday........!
Belated birthday wishes as well as 'get well ' soon ones are speeding their way over to you. Definitely have a 2nd one when you come home, take care x
Poor you. Get well soon. Happy birthday.
At least the NHS hasn't collapsed to the point where you have to do it yourself
