Update from Cassie: a couple of blood transfusions later the anaemia is being sorted, but he is very fed up being in hospital.

The good news is the Severn Bridge has been made toll free to get into Wales for a visit once he's well enough, but the bad news is that the motorway means missing the tunnel through Monmouth for maximum exhaust reverberation!

I've just spoken to Ron and he's home from hospital. He's facing a slow recovery to full health but it was heart-warming to hear his voice again - we've been friends due to these cars for many years now and enjoyed some great weekends and times together so I passed on everyones best wishes for his steady return to good health. He in turn has read the thread and passed on his thanks to all on bigcoupe.

Many, many thanks for all your good wishes etc. Had 21 days in hospital and was discharged home. That lasted 4 days before the District Nurse became extremely concerned about leakage from the wound (it smelt terrible) !!!!

So back to the local hospital which kept me in for the night and the following day transferred me 50 miles down the road to where I had the original op.

Had some exploratory surgery yesterday and back in again tomorrow. Not really sure what the options are.

I am completely knackered and so is Cass who has a round trip of 100 miles.

Thanks again. Will update as and when I can.

Glad to have you back in the fold! Life is ridiculously fragile and precious. The scare you must have given your family, and all of us internet family members too! Take care of yourself as well as you do your cars and you should be just fine!
