It was my father and unfortunately he starts radiotherapy in a few days because the surgery didn't catch it all. I am going to get a blood test Mr Hotcoupe. I said I would last time you mentioned it but it was a bit of a 'whenever' response I have to admit. You've spurred me on.
Your near death experience and six day stop in hospital reminded me of a conversation I had with my mum a few days ago. She stopped smoking quite a few years ago but has craved cigarettes ever since. She says a G&T just isn't the same without one. Anyway, I told her about me stopping and this prompted another bit of cigarette nostalgia. Then she just said 'To hell with it. I'm 74. I might start again. It's not going to kill me now is it?'
Anyhoo, I'm still off them.
