Report from Lindsay:
Eric has been returned to his ward from Theatre. He just had the angioplasty and did not need the bypass operation, which is good news. He tells me that Jason Wilkins, who unblocked his renal arteries last summer, carried out the procedure, which took about 1 and a half hours. Several bubbles/balloons were inserted into the femoral artery - a few exploded because there is a calcified lining to the artery - but stents then followed in. He now has to lie very still for a few hours and we
hope he may be allowed home tomorrow or at the weekend. More news to follow.
