4th Time Lucky?

Well, my hip replacement is due tomorrow and, unlike the previous three occasions, it has yet to be cancelled. There is, of course, still plenty of time for something to go wrong but at this late stage it does look mildly promising. Let's hope you do not hear from me for a few days - in this case no news is good news.

Bye for now (I hope)

I wish you a very successful hip replacement and a subsequent gain in mobility, John.

Cheers, mate.
