Excellent news! Bit of home recovery time for her I'd say. Glad it's gone smoothly.

Shortage of work + lack of money = mega stress.

Mum didn't start to show symptoms until her late 60s buy I'm 47.

So I've decided to get tested. Some friends have said I'm brave or stupid. Opinions vary. But I'm no longer in a relationship, I have no children. I'd rather know if I'm going to need full time care. That way I can a) plan for the inevitable b) not worry too much about how my pension is performing and c) start doing my bucket list before the illness makes me swear at people in the street, overeat junk food, stop feeling any empathy for everyone else and start running around naked with no concept of preserving my dignity. All symptoms of this disease.


Yikes. I was just about to have a whine about 40mph drivers on my route to work this morning. But having seen this makes my gripe seem trivial.

I hope the genetic tests don't find anything to worry about.

Missus was supposed to just be resting at home today, however whilst just sat on the sofa this morning her wound decided to start to full on bleed. Back to the hospital we rushed, yet more waiting around. Thankfully they were able to see her fairly quickly. The surgeon even came down in full scrubs as he was about to go into theatre. Still there most of the day again. Our hospitals are brilliant, even if I hate them. And the people who work in them are even better. Hopefully tomorrow doesn't involve going back again.

Holy crap Martin! Scary stuff. And yes, we'd be well and truly stuffed without our brill NHS and the amazing folk who work for it.
Glad they got it sorted speedily.

Back in sodding hospital again. What they did on Tuesday needs correcting. So now they are trying to squeeze us in in-between other ops. Really feel for my missus. Not what she wanted to hear. Plus they plan to do it under a local anaesthetic only. Burger.

That's crap Shiften, unless you work in one, no one likes being in hospital, as if you are, you're ill, or visiting someone who is.
Had enough of them last year, visiting my mum after she fractured her hip. Under resourced and over worked staff doing phenomenal work

Stone the crows, your poor wife! Really hope they get it sorted completely asap. Not a pleasant experience for either of you.

Keep us posted if you will.

We're home now, have been since about 5pm. I can't get over how strong my missus is. To be honest, I've known that for a long time. But sometimes she humbles me. Probably not the correct wording but hopefully you get the idea. Hopefully tomorrow is a better day. It better be as I was due in at work today and have to be there tomorrow.
