Cal : RIP

I confess to having been a tiny bit apprehensive this morning first thing. However the brilliant staff in the Bruce Day Care Unit at Ayr Hospital and visits from the anaesthetist and the consultant surgeon soon had my mind at rest and I drifted off to sleep without even having time to wonder what was happening.

When I came to I was back in the Day Care unit and in a much more bleary state than usual. Of course my first question was whether the procedure had been a success to which the answer was in the affirmative, so I just drifted in and out of a blissful haze for a while until they brought me black coffee and toast (why does that first piece off toast when one comes round taste sooooo good?) and I regained full consciousness.

After more tests and so on the consultant surgeon came and had a look, explained all that he had done and decided I was well enough to go back to my friend's for the night and come in again tomorrow morning for a check-up and some tuition by the nurses on how to cope with some of the procedures I might have to perform for a while. It would appear that Cal had not been the only problem and there were complications caused by the radio-therapy that I had 10 years ago.

All being well I shall be on the plane home on Saturday morning and life will return to normal.

  8. Yay!!! You and Cal have finally separated :-) I hope you can go home tomorrow, but if you're still a little unsteady (who wouldn't be, after what your body went through), maybe you should stay just one or two more days with your friends.

  12. I am delighted that Cal has departed but sorry to hear about the "complications" you mentioned. The wind forecast for Lewis tomorrow (Saturday) doesn't look too bad for flights. I guess there are many days when safe flying in and out of Lewis is impossible.

  19. Thank you everyone for your good wishes and comments. The plane from Glasgow was rather late yesterday which was a shame but it was nothing to do with the weather which was just the usual Lewis dreich. It was good to be home. I now have another few days with my almost-lifelong friend from Canada before she returns to the Land of the Maple Leaf. I then have a visit to The Beatson in Glasgow for Phase 2 of my Cancer Drug Trial before a few days R and R in Glasgow and then a return to Lewis and, hopefully, normality, Blogland and Christmas.
