Hi Jackie:
Nice to read your message, and sorry to hear of the complications.

I had a wonderful techie present, a pair of radio controlled dodgem cars!
Very great fun and better than sitting at PC keyboards!

I hope that 2k8 will be a better year for you.

Hi Everyone


Apologies for cross-posting as I appreciate several of you are on both the
Access UK and VI-Gen lists.


However, I want to wish you all a very happy and healthy 2008, and to thank
those who have been so supportive in offering their good wishes.  They have
meant so much to us in getting me through what I can only describe as two
weeks of complete and utter hell.


I got home today after an incredibly complex operation on my back.  In
short, I lost a lot of blood and, worse still, Cerebral Spinal Fluid.  The
latter caused my blood pressure to nose-dive that led to severe headache and
loss of hearing in my left ear, both of which I still have.


But you can’t keep an old dog down, and though I’m under strict orders to be
good and rest, I’m back! I have to say though that the care I received was
fantastic and of the highest order, and access to amenities and assistance
from staff was phenomenal at all times.  I even used my mobile all the time
without anyone complaining - just as well when there were no Patientline
facilities on our ward.  I even had my own room with en-suite bathroom.  I
couldn’t have had better treatment even if I’d won the Lottery and paid for
it that way (smile).  And Ian was looked after by everyone as well as I was.
They gave him his dinner, and assisted him to and from the ward when he
arrived and left, it was brilliant.


Finally, did anyone receive anything techie from Santa?  Apologies if you’ve
done this one to death already.  Just curious (smile).
