She will be returning to hospital early next week for her second course of chemotherapy.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers.
We appreciate them all!

I wish I knew how you do it--your photos have a sense of three-dimensionality to them that makes them outstanding. V
Graeme24-Oct-2012 22:49
What an amazing and beautifully captured scene, Chris. The details are superb and very detailed and id love to walk up that road. I am very pleased that Carole is home with you at the moment for respite my friend and hope that she makes a full recovery from this very difficult time.....BV

Wonderful angle and details. Very well done.
Gary A. Rich (GRainelev)24-Oct-2012 22:29
Fantastic image. The chalets what makes this image. Since it is natural wood it really stands out. If they were painted, it would be different. You took an image from a rainy day and turned into a piece of art. Excellent framing.
Glad that you guys have some really great news. We are thinking of your both. V.
Mildred Alpern24-Oct-2012 22:18
Wonderful pathway through these chalets. Their color is so rich and warm, drawing us up to the green and fog beyond. How lovely. So please about your wife. My thoughts are with you both.
Karen Stuebing24-Oct-2012 22:16
Lovely street. Love the color and light and the mountain in the background. Prayers for your wife.
Martin Lamoon24-Oct-2012 22:01
A powerful image. Hope you both are coping and she gets better soon. Our thought are with you both.

Positive vibes coming your way for you both.
