patrick in hospital 014The news is in – Patrick’s operation has gone well.

There was some ligament damage and it sounds as if more pins were needed than initially thought. But the important thing is that the operation went well and with any luck our fellow traveller will be out tomorrow – crutches and plaster complete.

The only problem now of course – is how on earth do you keep a very active fellow ‘active’ when he’s got one leg strung up?
