My symptoms of shivering and a high temperature seemed to clear up as soon as Alan, Rach, Chan and Alfie, and the Foddys turned up on Sunday so I definitely think the visitors were the cure!...... was also good to get some beard support from Matt, a long term beard wearer.
Despite the democratic vote Betty conducted that is clearly pro beard, Jenna still wants rid :( I have managed to buy some time again by compromising and allowing Jenna to get stuck in and give it a wee groom!
.... Other than the beard, I've managed to get up in the chair several times and sit much more upright since I last wrote, today I was in it for five hours so it's great to get a change of scenery and be able to go outside and generally just not be lying down permanently.
Also got to see the X-rays yesterday, the before wasn't as gruesome as I'd expected but still brought a tear to the eye, the after on the other hand looks to have guaranteed me a thorough search at any airport in the future, looked like a set of Meccano has been put in there..... right I'm rambling so going to go, got a bit of quiet time with Jenna tonight in a flat they have upstairs, so got to make myself look presentable!
Thanks to all, Mark x
