Thanks to Lindsay for keeping the blog going while I was away, and thanks to all who sent me 'Get Well' cards. I had a rocky start, with nausea and constipation immediately after I woke up, probably the effects of the anaesthetic, and a high white bloodcell count, low magnesium and potassium, and fairly high blood pressure. This has come down a bit since I started taking beta-blockers yesterday morning; the magnesium has been topped up bu a 12-hour drip, and the potassium by pills. So I felt strong enough to get up at lunch time and potter into the office, but all the mail going to the House is being fielded by Jill. I rang her, and she's coming to Flodden road to hand it all over either next Tuesday or Wednesday.
