    Crikey Nathan, when you said you needed a weekend off the comp scoring because you had something on… I thought you were off shopping or suchlike!

    Very, very best wishes.

    Just to let everyone know, I had a kidney transplant last Sunday December 2nd and everything went well and I was discharged today.

    Glad to hear you’re okay. :D

    Don’t worry about scoring for this week’s comp. Done it :mrgreen:

    Haven’t donated a kidney, but I do donate blood.

    Good health and happiness for the future Nathan, and to Mike too and for highlighting how the gift of a kidney can so dramatically change the lives of children and older people suffering from kidney disease.

    If more people were like Richard Pitman and Mikes friend the world would be a happier and healthier place for a lot of folk.

    My daughter had Leukemia at 2 and again it came back at 5 years of age in the central nervous system, each time a long hard course of radiotheraphy and chemo got her through and luckily she didn’t need a bone marrow transplant, but if she had we would also have been reliant on the generosity of family and friends. Thankfully she won her fight, but we are great supporters of carrying the card..Jac

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. I’m feeling better and stronger everyday.

    It’s great to be home, all the wonderful nurses were queuing up to pull out the catheter after a week of playing them all up. :D

    Drone it rings many bells, many a zider drunk in the ring of bells over the years, although I’ve never stayed in the Castle hotel, a lovely place though, used to clean the windows there, before the use of poles you had to hang out the window to clean the high ones, health and safety would have a field day.

    Cormack I was hoping to return home with the awards up and running, any news?

    My first visit to Taunton cricket ground was in the mid-70s for the third day of an inconsequential County Championship match versus Northants – just the sort of ‘three-men-and-a-dog-crowd-and-two-asleep’ soporific leather-on-willow county town summer’s day I adore. Bishen Bedi spun a little magic for Northants and Brian Close knocked 20-odd for Mummerset; whatever else occurred is long forgotten and didn’t matter anyway

    Never been to Taunton races I’m ashamed to say, and never zupped zider in the Ring O’Bells I’m glad to say :) Ushers Best Bitter if memory serves

    ‘Dross’ cricket in the summer. ‘dross’ NH racing in the winter:

    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm,

    This Sporting Life :D

    Cheers guys.

    Gord, I’ve got to go back in a few months to get the stent removed. Apparently they stick something up my wotsit whilst I’m awake and it takes 45 minutes….. :shock:

    Joni, I read on the other thread you suffered from gout, I hope it is a limited experience as I can testify it’s bloody painful.

    Yes – out of the blue. Thought I’d broken my foot at first. Had my bloods done after and they said change your diet so I did. Touch wood it hasnt returned. No wonder Henry VIII had all those wives beheaded – it does make you moody. :)

    Aah yes,

    .

    It’s not a joyful experience but it won’t take anything like 45 mins (normally 10 mins). It’s not

    actually

    that painful, it’s more the psychological side of where they’re ramming their contraption that makes you feel a bit woozy.

    Having said that, you do get to see the whole procedure on ‘willy-cam’. :mrgreen:
