"God help you in the hands of the medical profession"

A quote from Rob’s Dad, who used to be a doctor. Rob says, people who see it from the inside realise medics are not ‘infallible priests of science’.

Personally, I trust both (God and the medical profession) to get me through this, just as 20 years ago, they cured me of meningitis.

This week I become the property of the NHS. It goes like this:
Monday: Pre-op – to make sure I’m fit.
Tuesday: Consent to surgery (if you don’t consent it’s assault and battery). The surgeon may want to draw on me, apparently. She is, after all, an artist.
Wednesday: The operation. I’m looking forward to the morphine.

    We'll all be thinking of you Clare. If the power of our positive thoughts is anything to go by, you're home and dry.
