Thanks again you wonderful beautiful bunch.  Yes many happy memories of Val, my wife.  We were married for 48 yrs just coming upto 49.  Oh how I miss her. Perhaps in our, mu case.  Val and I both realised that her heart op, would be 'Goodbye' Thanfully due to our belief, we held/hold a grand hope for the future.  Hey friends. Mike has got an appointment for his CT Scan.  Saturday morning 11.30  Nothing to eat four hours before.  You can drink as much water as you like.  Mike can't stand tap water.  Can I have a few tipples of the scottish necter?  Anyway folks.  Now ny innards will be photograghed yet again.  Wowee!!.  Believe me guys and dolls.  I am trying to keep calm.  Please hold my hand.  Love and kisses to all.

As a general point, you probably do need to drink lots of water (or soft drinks) at the moment, because a bladder cancer pre-disposes you to urinary tract infections, and they make the pictures blurred and cloudy, and then they have to call you back and do them again.  And alcohol dehydrates.  That's what your doctor would tell you anyway!!!  Have the whiskey to celebrate when it's over.  But UTIs delayed my dad's treatment, so best to do what you can to avoid them.  Although I can understand you wanting a bit of dutch courage.

Just seen this thread Mike.  So sorry to hear, but I'm sure you and the medics will sort it out between you.  Good luck on Saturday. Keeping calm is good

Mike, your hand is firmly but gently held. Take care my garden buddy, very best wishes. Hope the sunshine and the forum photos and banter help lift your spirits.x

Mike - since you don't have a fondness for tap water (and necter is out of the question) have you tried of of these flavoured waters? Or even just adding a wedge of lemon to a glass of sparkling water to get those fluid levels up so they get nice clear pictures of you?

We'll all be thinking of you on Saturday like rampant weeds spreading across the country squeezing ever little bit of love we can in your direction.

Have only just seen this post. Sorry to hear the news. Thoughts are with you and look forward to reading that you have had some good news along with more of your garden updates soon

Hi Friends and FAMILY.

Yes all of a sudden Mike has gained, not only a vast number of new gardening friends, but as I consider it.  A new family.  Thanks guys and gals.  Yes when one hits the lows in life. That extra bit of TLC really does mean so much.  Especially when we look around the world,  not much peace and security, folks packin up and venturing forth to try and find a safe haven

Now Mike has some positive news.  However, I must admit.  All of a sudden the penny has dropped.  Mike is now feeling a bit scared, and frightened.  My OP date is 12 May. it will be done under a general, so thankfully I will be out of it. I trust in my grand creator so why should I worry?  In the meantime.  I have a CT Scan on Saturday.  Then on 2 My, an assessment to see if I am up to surgery.  Then it's count backwards Mike.  Mr Allen.   Wakey wakey, it's all over.  come on now.  What would you like for breakfast.

Thanks friends for all you good wishes.  Mike is proud to be part of this family.  Thanks again.  Plus. Thanks for the confidence in my posts.
