One friend is in hospital recovering from kidney stone removal.
Another friend has had to postpone his trip to the Netherlands for a gall stone operation.
Another friend has just been diagnosed with colon cancer. Ten week's ago his sister who he lives with had her breast removed after cancer surgery. Just call them lucky.
In the meantime I feel as fit as a Mallee bull. (Positive old Aussie saying that I hope won't die out)
Later Edit: And ABI Brother has a carcinoma on his forehead. Day surgery.
