Update 4

Enjoy your day.


  1. Thanks for letting us know Keith. It seems the NHS is being run for the staff and not the customers. A good kicking wouldn't do them any harm.
    Good luck my thoughts and hopes are with you.

  2. Keith, I don't know what to say...they didn't really expect you to accept going in for the op at a few hours notice, did they?
    At least there's a little bit of good news in that you don't have to go down the stent route first, I guess all you can do now is stay positive and hope they can get their act together and sort you out early in the new year?

    My best wishes Keith, I'll be thinking of you. You know where I am.

  3. Stay right there, keep fighting Keith.

  4. Thanks for the update. I had been wondering how things were progressing for you.
    You look and sound as though you are coping well Keith especially considering all the messing about you are getting.
    I know how you feel being without Whisky. Home feels so empty without our devoted constant companions.
    I was without Tramp (the dog I had when I had my cancer op) for over a month during my recovery period.
    Keep battling on. There will be light at the end of that tunnel.

  5. Thanks Adrian. I think I tend to agree at the moment. If I'm honest I've had more support from a few friends than I have from the NHS at the moment. I feel like I'm left to just get on with it and cope as best I can.

    Cheers Trev. The procedure I had at Bedford was the same as having a stent put in; the only difference was they decided not to put one in. In one experts opinion, it would be OK. A bit like running a marathon, getting to the line and saying 'fuck it, don't think I'll bother now.'

    Thank you Bob. I'm in angry Fighting mode at the moment.

    Thanks John. Aside from all the messing about, I really do miss Whisky. At the moment I'm not good at travelling long distances, but I'm very tempted to make that journey to see him, if it's the last thing I do.
