Ah well, I'll spoil everything by adding that I have had another appointment letter, They're doing the Cystoscopy on Friday as well at 9AM so it will be a busy day. Mick and Susan are taking me to Stockport for a wander round my childhood on Thursday so they'll be fed up with me!
Any further news about Ian?

News of Ian? I'm not on Facebook any more.....
I think my GP must have me as a personal project! He's noted a slight alteration in my sodium levels in the last blood test and wants another one in a month. I'm not complaining, very efficient but the the thought does strike me, is this how it's going to be in the future?
Maz was right, I do worry about these things....... Funny thing is that I have never felt better!
I confirmed my appointment at Airedale on Friday and pointed out a possible problem of a clash between the two appointments. They withdrew and consulted and have brought the endoscopy appointment forward to 08:15 to give me time to refill my bladder! evidently this is important as Ultrasound informs me that if I turn up with it not full the appointment is cancelled and I will be taken out and shot like a dog..... Good job I asked......
Susan is a treasure, all my transport and Jack care sorted out.... Daughters are a Very Good Thing!

All preparations complete..... I even bought two bottles of water so I can refill my bladder between tests. I hated doing it but it is the best way out.....

The latest FB update on is that he's had all the staples removed from his wound and he's moved to a 'rehabilitation ward. He has a support on his 'dropped' foot to help him walk and physio is on going.

There's a new video clip, over on FB, of Ian up and about under his own steam.

Not sure how much you'll hear from me this morning. It's an upset day and I shall be busy. Susan and Mick pick me up at 7:45. I shall be in the Endoscopy unit at 08:15 and the most intrusive test should be over fairly quickly. I shall report later.
By the way David, that large bag that you left full of goodies has proved to be just the thing for taking all the stuff I need at the hospital. Amazing how much room a dressing gown and slippers plus bottled water and all the other essential bits takes up. The bag is just the ticket!
I got my flu jab letter yesterday......
