Well he's made it to the hospital (well I dropped him at the door). I've not had a phone call yet to say come fetch me back there's no bed !
He is scheduled for the heart by-pass operation and sorting out the leaky valve first thing tomorrow morning. I think the op should take a few hours so probably won't know anymore until tomorrow afternoon. He'll be in intensive care for a few days and then back on the normal ward.
Will keep the blog updated and many thanks for all the good wishes.
