Anyone heard from FRED?

Post by Original Quill on Mon 14 May 2018 - 18:43

His "next week" was last week, so now is the time we should be looking around. I woke up thinking of him this am...guess that's a kind of prayer. It certainly is a 'miss ya' and 'thinkin' of ya'!

Fred, if you hear me, let us know. If not...god bless.

I've updated eddie and she knows the full story. I should have had open heart surgery last Wednesday but the op was cancelled at the very last minute and when I was actually gowned up, prepped and in the waiting area. I'm absolutely bloody gutted and now have to wait another 10 days before going through the whole terrifying rigmarole again.

I don't blame anyone - the previous op threw up problems, and I can only pray that the patient - to whom I had been chatting earlier - came through it OK.

Emotionally and psychologically I'm a bloody wreck and my poor family and partner are trying to cope. And I was always regarded as a hard bastard!

I have an email link to eddie and I'm quite happy for her to keep you updated.

Stay strong, Fred. This is tough, but you'll look back at it as a bump in the road years from now. You'll be just fine in no time.

Its horrible when that happens Fred, sadly it does, all too often.
It happened to me a few years ago....all dressed up and nowhere to go, they sent me home because an emergency came up, and like you I was gutted.

Good news is in a few days you will have had the op and be on the road to recovery....and I just want to add all my good wishes to everyone elses. x

Hello folks.

Thanks for all the wonderfully kind messages; you really are lovely people.

A week today it should all be over, and with any luck the old pump will be back to working properly.

well, that's because you are, Fred.

so glad you have loving family and partner to help you get through this

Pain having the cancellation and having to wait again but at least it's not weeks or even months. stay positive and you'll be back with us very soon.

love and best wishes xx

I emailed him and had no reply yet.
I’ll wait a couple of days and try again.

Got an email from Fred. The operation went well and he’s just resting.
Will tell you more when I hear again.

Big relief though!

Just to echo what everyone else has said.

Forums are a funny plateau of existence. We may never meet the people we mix with on a daily/weekly or monthly basis, but that doesn't stop us caring about them.

Just got this:

Hello *****
Still progressing well...and being kept firmly under control by my daughter who is living in at my house as my carer for the coming couple of weeks.
I’ll have a look in the forum over the next few days hopefully.

Hello you lot.

Well, I've been back home for a week now and the fully repaired ticker and its bit of prime Aberdeen Angus valve are behaving themselves. I'm already walking up to a mile at a fair lick without getting puffed.

My grand daughter is convinced that as well as being part zombie, having been clinically "dead" for a couple of hours (I think), I am now at distinct risk of becoming a cannibal and eating my Uncle Wally. Hmmmmmmmmmm.......the fertile imagination of teenagers!

I think those nice people at the Royal Papworth must have slipped some sort of "nice-guy" concoction into my meds because I can't even bring myself to argue with Andy about that great newspaper editor Paul Dacre elsewhere!!!!!

Don't worry...it won't last long.

Thanks again for all the kind thoughts recently.

(And no, Nicko old chap...the Landy remains firmly under lock and key!)

Chuffed you are back with us Fred. And get yourself properly well before we go tooth and nail against Dacre.
He can wait.
