Ok,Tam get the rum bottle and a glass the rest of you get your preferred beverage and make yourself comfy,this might be a long one. First off bye to poor old Charlie,kidneys started to fail,I could,nt get her to eat anything.It turned out she had a tumour growing too.So she,s off to pussy cat dream world,Dizzle seems to miss her,he was very nice to her in the last few days.Sweet dreams Charlie pops. Last week went to the North Mid for my cataract assessment,my right eye is a lot worse so booked in for surgery on the 2 nd of November,looking (sorry) forward to being able to see again. On Saturday got a copy of the letter sent to GP from Brompton consultant.No valves!It seems they reckon I,ve improved so much we,re. Going for LVRS again.Not so much a U turn as a reverse UTurn back up round the corner,across the bridge and down a bit then another U Turn lol. So now I have to look forward to them slicing up my eyes then a few days later slicing bits of my lungs off.Oh what joy! That was nice and quick! Notice I got the picture up the right way? Spun it round in the editing suite and "hey presto " thanks who ever suggested that. Be well chums,happy breathing,a few nicer days ahead I hear woohoo!D.
