from Gavin: “The operation went OK. Didn’t get operated on until Friday due to more important emergencies coming up, so i had two relaxing days in hospital beforehand. The operation took 4 and a half hours and the surgeon said my prolapsed disc was that bad he was surprised i could walk at all. I got out on Sunday and am on very strong painkillers. I can only walk a few steps at a time and am spending most of my time lying on my back as sitting and standing are too painful.
If anybody needs to contact me about work stuff feel free. I might not respond straight away as the painkillers are making me sleep lots.
Hope all is still running smoothly without me.”
