I'm very happy for you Cleo!
Reading through your blog it sound like there have been a number of things that you were nervous about that, when you girded your loins and addressed them, ended up working out better than you thought it might. Congratulations!
Although there is no promise that future issues will go as smoothly you now know that not every case will necessarily turn into a "worst case scenario" - go you!
Hugs and Happiness to you.
