Hi Pete42,

Congratulations on your big fat "0". Hope it is only the first one of many more to come. I know how you feel about the result because I just had my 2nd 3 monthly result on 15 June and it was also a "0". It sure feels great!! I just hate the few days  before the result because I find them very stressful.

Wishing you continued, smooth recovery.
