    Darling, you know what I love. I am perfectly fine. Honestly, the 2nd op being on the exact same day as the first was like “hello you down there. Girl, wake up!!!”
    A few days before I saw a lady trying to push (maybe her man?) across the road in the rain. She was pushing him in a wheelchair, trying to balance an umbrella, with a small toddler on his lap. He had a brain injury I am sure. The helmet he was wearing was a give away. They were young too.
    And I thought ” you know what Lorelle, you’re fine. You have your brain, he won’t get his back. Whatever happens, we will deal with, we will look fabulous and smile. It will be fine”.
    I often wonder about that lady and how she is going.

    But thank you again, it’s alllllll gooood!

    I just read your article in the Australian Harper’s Bazaar. My name is Lorelle, and I wanted to say thank you for being so brave and encouraging in telling your story. It was a little like reading some of my own experiences of late.
    Nov 27 2012 I had a total thyroidectomy- gotta love those multi nodular goitres :). So i know about the op, the recovery, the scarring ( which i am thrilled to say is barely visible and I like you got the all clear), but can you believe Nov 27 2013, same hospital I find myself back on the operating table, with the same kind of scare in a completely different part of me!!! Again thank God, just got the all clear.
    So, for Nov 27 2014- I am booking myself in to lie on a different table, to be pampered from head to toe and have a massage 😄😄😄
    I feel very, very lucky, to have had what i think have been two very big taps on the shoulder, but i am not alone. there are too many of us burning out, trying to ‘do it all’ , give, provide, succeed, be present, in the pursuit of joy? Reading your advice ‘to just go back to bed’- thank you. THAT is my dream some days. To be able sleep, read, do nothing, listen, go for a walk and just chill out is something that I will be making a priority now.
    I cannot wait for your text. If you happen to know who will stock it in Australia- Melbourne- please let me know.
    Have a beautiful Christmas and New Year, and I wish you al the luck in the world.

      Lorelle – hello!

      Oh. Honey. Twice on the operating table……my heart goes out to you.

      And thank you so much for writing here…….

      Here’s wishing you all the loveliness in the world as you rest and recuperate and unwind and get well – take all the time you need.

      My book is available on pre-order on amazon and I am hoping that some delicious australian booksellers will also stock it as I’d love to know How To Stay Sane In A Crazy World is helpful everywhere.

      Thank you again for taking the time to write.

      The scar on my neck salutes the scar on yours.

    Sophia, maybe I should be “Teamgloria” and you should be “A gripping life?” I think you can truly claim that your life is gripping, whereas I can only make jokes about my limping life.
    I’m so glad you found me — All thanks to the beautiful and talented Vickie Lester. The more I get to know her, the more I think she fell from heaven. She’s divine in every way.
    I look forward to reading more of your blog and following your success! Well done!!

    • teamgloria says:

      Dearest Lisa – we looked in the comments section and found that we had been horribly remiss and not answered this one! do forgive – and we shall visit you instantly to see what’s new in your part of the world….

    Dear Gloria
    Gloriana Jubilate!
    Now that’s quite a curriculum vitae.
    The Dandy is quite delirious with the prospect of idling away his time after levee on these pages.
    Yours ever

    This was so interesting! A long time Instagram friend who was really intrigued about you (not in a creepy way honest!) A rich & diverse career history which makes for the most interesting people! I am so glad to hear that you’re feeling much better!

    Looking forward to reading your blog and seeing your images on instagram!
