Brain operation
« on: March 05, 2023, 08:57:31 PM »
I go into hospital tomorrow afternoon then prepare for operation on a sack of fluid next to my brain
No big deal according to the doctor
The fluid puts pressure on the brain and cause vertigo or something like that
Operation will be some time on Tuesday
I will have an MRI Wednesday morning and if a success they will send me home
I won’t be able to drive or ride for 6 weeks
You never know if successful I could be back on 2 wheels
But I have enjoyed my time on the Spyder
But I will just wait and see how I recover

Here's hoping and praying for a good outcome.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

They rang Robyn at 10.00 to say it is all over
I'm feeling good. Pleased it all over, just got to recover
I can't drive for 6 weeks so I got time to play with the Roses
