Well, it got ballsed up - what else can I say? I arrived at the hospital, was made to cool my heels for over an hour, and then shown to a bed. In the fullness of time my tum was shaved and an IV drip was inserted into my wrist. I was then wheeled to the operating theatre and left alone on the operating table for about five minutes.
Then the surgeon arrived and told me that the bloke who had been send to the surgical supplier's to buy the mesh that will hold my tum in place had returned with the wrong type. . .
So we shall try again on Tuesday. What can I say? Third world: third rate.
