Wow, where do I begin?

I guess, as always, with a big THANK YOU.

The last three days have been quite surreal, really.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, I will fill you in. Since Monday, this site has received more traffic than it has ever before. When I say more, I mean like 70 times more!

It all started with an email from a journalist asking for an interview about Weskoppies Hospital. After being prompted and encouraged by my near and dear, I took the decision to write the post about OP that has now literally made this blog world famous. I have since been retweeted by some of the biggest journo legends on twitter and asked to appear on BBC radio along with other news publications.

The response has been overwhelming.

So, yes, I am grateful for all of you for responding to positively to my writing. It feels hugely gratifying and mortifying in equal amounts.

Unfortunately, I cannot bask in the glory of these positive emotions as I am currently dealing with a family emergency at home. This means that I also cannot reply to your comments and tweets etc.

Please bear with me. I hope that things settle down soon.

Feel free to share your stories of gratitude #onthecouchwithcarly
