    Oh that is a right pain! As you say, not the nurses fault. They were really great with me when I was there.

    I hope all goes well with the op!

    Hi Keith :wave: oh you have had a wait haven't you. As I'm writing this you should be by your bed? hopefully.

    I wish you well and I will be thinking of you tomorrow and sending you lots of good wishes for a successful operation and a speedy recovery.

    (((((((( HUGS))))))))))
