Bob’s poorly! haaaaaaaah
Come on you can do better than that HAAAAAAAAA. Yes folks I’m afraid it’s true over the next few weeks I need to have some treatment which is going to make me less active than usual but as I am having this treatment as a day patient my blogging should not be affected to much. Our local hospital at Sandwell has impressed me immensely with both its kit and the skills of the people who use. It’s very clean and I have the greatest confidence in the doctors and staff. The staff have been exceptionally helpful and accommodating to Pat and myself. Having spent most of last Thursday as their guest I can’t say I’m looking forward to the weeks ahead but I’m a lot less concerned about it. I spent some time in the Nuclear Medicine Dept. There is a plaque on the wall reminding us that the original imaging suite was funded by subscriptions from the people of Sandwell. I remember that time very well; almost everyone in the borough was doing some sort of fund raising activity. Amongst other things I organised a sponsored swim which raised about 500 quid which was a lota lolly in those days. I never thought I would need the services myself though. The kits come a long way since then but you can see where the massive investment in the NHS as been going. I don’t propose to give regular updates on this situation though and they won’t be posting bulletins on the railings in Little Lane. My Press Officer (the wife) has been advised to say nowt until yours truly is fit and well again.
