Thank you all for your kind comments after my earlier blog. I'm off to see the consultant tomorrow, deep joy. But on the plus side she is a lovely kind and sincere lady. Madam, my wife, says she wants a private word with her, I suspect she wants to know what to expect as the end game slowly approaches. Who can blame her forewarned is for armed as they say. I'm sure she will tell me afterwards anyway. It's hard to keep a secret from someone you've been married to for 42 years.
