Just stopped in to let everyone know Craigs feeling a bit better today. Up and walking around a wee bit, even got a shower. Docs happy with progress so far.

So if anyones wondering, he woke up early sunday morning with a nasty pain in side & some cramps. Pretty bad so went to A&E  where the dr saw him, said “dont worry, not appendix “ & diagnosed him with kidney infection and sent home with pain meds and antibiotics “should feel better in a day or 2”

2 days later.(thursday) . getting even worse... told him to call up to the local clinic where they got him right in and saw dr... “hmmm not appendix but I dont know what it is” ....referred to hospital on a ASAP basis.
So proper bloods run,,, came back saying some kind of infection going on but not clear, followed by  CT scan...., oh look ... it is your appendix.... so sceduled for opp first thing wed morning, thinking keyhole, easy peasy... not,
 got started and realised his appendix had actually ruptured on Sunday morning (hence the pain) and hed been walking around for 3 days like that... 6 hours surgery later and lots of antibiotics, pain killers and morphine etc.

So hes looking better now and just the normal kinda pain you get when being oppeded up, rummiged around in and then sew back together... no more apendix to worry about.

Not going to be out on the bike for a while though... estimate is 4-6 weeks before even thinking of doing anything fun.... and no lifting etc for even longer.

 :( Sounds pretty sore reading that but not a patch on actually being Craig !
Hopefully the antibiotics will do their thing and his recovery will be straightforward.
Best Wishes

  :o  :o HOLY POOP Batman!!!!!  :o  :-[

Eldest informed me yesterday evening that you'd been floored by a small organ  :o rupture.

Sooooo glad that your getting better and sensibly using prospective bike time as a target for when your FULLY recovered  ;D

Take it easy, let yer body fix itself after all that rummaging around inside that the medico's did and I'll see you on the road when the time is right . . . . . or if your really un-lucky, I'll pop over with a bunch of grapes  ;D
