I'm home in one piece


Quite a few GOY members sent me their love and best wishes when they heard that I was due tp go into hospital this week.
The good news is that I am home and feeling OK, just a bit wobbly still.
The Endoscopy was not a very pleasant experience, but the good news is that No serious condition was found, in fact all the bits of me that they looked at were normal.
The doctors will continue to monitor my liver, and I need to keep taking medication, but many of the possible reasons for the problems have now been crossed off the list.
Hope this isn’t too medical, but folk were asking so I thought I had better let you all know.
The nice thing about GOY is that it is full of people who care, and we all happen to share gardening as one of the big interests in our lives.

Very pleased to hear the news is good, Chris.

Hi Chris. I'm glad to hear you're allright. So what if you've got to take medication, at least you know there's nothing serious wrong. Your garden and loging on to GOY are good medication aswell.

Hi Chris quite a procedure so glad to hear that no serious condition was found.Friend had one and used a drug called hypnovane - allows you to remain concious but fully co-operative and cannot recall experience of investigation.What marvellous stuff could you imagine the fun if this fell into wrong hands! Think the Somerset 'Mafia' would be panicking! Best wishes to you.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a comment from you on one of my pics... and thought to myself that you must be taking some time off (vacation) ~ didn't hear that you were going into hospital... Glad that your news was good. As mentioned ... goY is good therapy... you can enjoy the garden and not get too tempted to do a little weeding or get too physical when you should be resting!!! Glad you're back!
