10:30am – I have to say I was a little reluctant to take snapshots of my man before his operation (that old notion of tempting fate and other dark thoughts besides ran through my head) but then he was given these surgical stockings to put on… Yep, I hold my hands up, I barely contained my giggles.
6:00pm – Just 7½ hours after leaving my side, I’m back by his. I was greeted by a, “Hello gorgeous!” well, “‘Ello gawjuss!” to be more precise. It’s truly astonishing, isn’t it, that less than an hour after major brain surgery you can charm your wife and eat a roast dinner?

I arrive on Sunday just in time to see Nige moved from the ward, into a private room. Although he is happier, I think happy would be stretching it a bit. He had his bandage removed by a very lovely nurse called Tracey, who was more than a match for his surliness!

So, home from hospital on Monday, staples out the following Friday, out enjoying Victoria Park on Sunday. The power of positive thinking and a brisk, October day. We’re winning!
All our love (for now), Nigel and Lisa xxx
