Operate

I would like to thank all my neighbours, friends, and relatives for your support. I went into Jubilee hospital on Wednesday the 24th of June for a vascular surgery named Femoral Cross over. (Look it up, it’ll scare you as it did me) I posted a few photos on instagram and Facebook and the response was overwhelming. I’m out now with instructions to not drive or lift heavy things for 30 days. Your kindness and concern bouyed me up. (Along with the dedicated nurses and attendants at the hospital)
The surgeon and her office were extremely helpful and sympathetic.
All in all these factors made the experience bearable.
So, thanks again and you won’t see me much for a while as I’m on self isolation for a while. (with some great anti-pain drugs.)

  1. Glad you’re on the mend Bob…..remember no dishes or housework of any kind for 3 years!

  2. Just taking it easy is your reward for so many years of suffering. Just sitting isn’t easy but it will be over and you’ll be perambulating like mad.

  3. Sorry to hear you’ve been through all that. Wishing you a speedy recovery (well not too speedy). Hugs.

  4. Dear Bob, I do admire your dedication to photo journalism! At times from a hotel room, or even a hospital room, you continue to surprise, amuse, and inform us with your observations on life.
    Ever onward, upward, and outward my friend!
