surgery on the melanoma on my arm is scheduled for today, but so far the tests have looked good.
All the best with that, Joe. :thumbsup:
I got the results the tests from last weeks surgery, no sigh its spread from the initial site of the melanoma, so no chemo for me, just continued monitoring and another 3 weeks off work for it to heal. :excited:
Joe Cusick,

Been a bit out of touch for this last week;

Mike and Joe - nice to read your good news.

Larry - best wishes as always, and I hope there is some improvement soon. You seem to be suffering quite a lot from poor health, so all the best to you.

Talking about the NHS - my grandson was born about 6 weeks premature in May. That's well into the gestation safety zone, but all stops were pulled out anyway. In the delivery room were two midwives, one senior midwife ( all three of them degree trained ), a consultant anaesthetist, a consultant obstetrician and a consultant paediatrician. Outside, a team waited with a mobile incubator to transfer the child to the special care unit.

After delivery, the boy was connected up to just about every sensor and monitor you can imagine - it looked like the TV showroom at John Lewis - and received expert 24-hour care for the next five weeks. The parents were given a room next door so that they could stay at the hospital or go and have an evening out if they wished, without any worries for the baby.

The thing is, the father is from the USA and works for Facebook in London. He said he would have needed a second mortgage to have paid for all this in the USA, but he, my daughter and all the rest of us just pay our taxes and we all get this sort of treatment without any further payments. Not wishing to turn this into a political rant, but our dear Colonial friends might ponder upon this next time you are told that universal health care is 'commie' or substandard. You are being lied to in shovel loads by vested interests, commercial and political, and deserve better. My sister, who lives in the US, says that if Americans had an NHS, they would have it all.
Pip Pip ! :)

Paul, that is very strong case for universal healthcare and I am glad your grandson received such excellent care. With your permission, I would like to forward the NHS portion of your email to my Congressman and both Virginia Senators. High time the Colonists wake up and do what every other developed country in the world does for their citizens!

Nigel,
Have you undergone a surgical procedure?
You used to be Nigel squared, but now you're Nigel ash. :dunno:
