Liz - I'm loving your trip report! I really enjoyed Hard Rock Hotel when I stayed there, a very cool hotel and the staff were great! And, I'd love your two cents worth if you'd like to throw it in there! A lot of people aren't really 'talking' to me - like they don't know what to say. A friend I've had for 17 years, who knows my mum as well as her own, has all but disappeared since I told her. The whole thing at the minute is surreal. We'll know more tomorrow, she has her pre-op appointment at 9am tomorrow before her surgery on the 10th of January. Still hasn't sunk in, at the minute it feels like we are all just trying to get through the days. Thank you all, so much, for letting me rant and babble on!
