Hi Dove, saw the specialist last week ,he showed us an amazing picture of my neck, the detail was unbelievable far superior to an xray ,unfortunately more serious than thought i need two ops to remove two vertebrae that are trapping the swelled cord and plates inserting if poss, hopefully soon as im now on a walking frame, left side temporally paralysed till the op i hope,with a bit of luck i might get the hospital in Cambridge he said its the best there is, so im watching that postman daily and the garden sits there waiting, Kate's going to plant all the new trees iv ordered, there will be fruit trees all over the place and lots to do if it goes well and fingers crossed ,thanks for the help matey and dont forget out drink come summer. good luck.. this is a smilie ?;;?
