From time-zone to time-zone on the Triple 7 Speedbirds
Hello all. Captain Ian (The Flying Scotsman) had his appendix removed last night. Here's what his wife (June) posted:
Hello: this is being posted with the help of our kids. During the night, Ian started to get pain in his stomach, which steadily got worse as morning came. We called the Emergency Doctor service which came in less than 20 minutes, and quickly diagnosed appendicitis. I started off life as a nurse, so I suspected as much, but he wouldn't listen to me, until the pain became intolerable. Typical man.Long and the short of it, Ian about 2 hours ago had his appendix removed in an urgent operation and it all went smoothly and he is now fast asleep.As we were getting him to the hospital, he scribbled down his password and information and insisted a note is dropped in here to let you all know what has happened! I needed to get the kids to help me.I am heading over there again to see husband-without-appendix (and dad-without-appendix) but expect him still to be fast asleep.
Thanks again, June and the kids.
Perhaps fellow readers can send Ian an email/post.
