Health update

This is to let my readers know that I am in hospital after severe abdominal pains. Turns out that I have cholecystitis (inflamed gallbladder) with gallstones, some of which are probably obstructing my biliary duct. I am on antibiotics and more medications (including Tor nausea) than I've ever taken in my life.  They are talking of a procedure to remove the gallbladder - a bit like an endoscope, except a lot more dangerous. There is even a one-in-thousand chance that could be fatal so I am weighing up my options. There is a Lo more using on in my body than just this.

It means that I may be out of action for a while, although I am hoping not.

Best wishes to all,


  1. All the best for a full recovery and return to the keyboard.
