Thank you each and all for the good wishes, you do realise how much the board friendships mean when you cannot see the posts.
Alan NHS did me proud, all the blood tests and samples during June July did not show up the problem, my own Doctor fast tracked me as he suspected it was bad. In spite of my age all the fitness tests were OK and they did find the alien so down I went at eight on the morning woke up at four in the afternoon, a six hour op. Seven days wonderful care and out to my Daughters who would wrap me in bubble wrap if they could, nice to be cared for though I wanted to be home. The very good news a week later it was "C" but they got it all no chemo, still have some plumbing in place but a small price to pay. The Hospital staff are like us have outside lives and worries, often short staffed and in my opinion underpaid, not that you would notice, Professional and caring each of us treat as if the only patient, wonderful and nothing like the bad press they get.
Saw the first programme David, I know three of them so will hold my council until I see some dance moves.
