WE live in a world where we are generally bombarded by the media of everything that is negative in our lives.

I would, therefore, like to share with your readers our story of mixed emotions, despair and joy.

My husband was taken into hospital for a stomach operation; this went as well as could be expected, but complications set in which resulted in a further three major operations.

He spent a considerable time at the James Paget University Hospital, at Gorleston, in total 19 weeks.

During that time he was so ill it looked as though he might pass away, but where there's life there is hope!

Thanks to the care of his consultant surgeon Mr Studley, his theatre team, ICU doctors and nurses, the staff on Ward 5 and rehab unit, he pulled through. At the moment he is now recuperating at home.

These people deserve and receive our utmost gratitude as do all our well wishers and helpers during these difficult times.

We appreciate that not everyone's experience of hospitals result in as positive an outcome as ours.

We also understand that the NHS is not without its problems, but let's be thankful that it is there to pick up the pieces of our shattered lives and give people a second chance of life.
