Hi all, it’s a full year since my perm ileo op & thankfully it has been a very good year , I promised myself that I’d celebrate the occasion at 3pm each may 13th, that was the time I was wheeled into the operating theatre, so here I am 3pm GMT May 13 enjoying a coffee in a bar in middle Ireland, I am on one of my regular 3 hour motorway drives from the east coast to the south west, I usually never stop on these trips (before it was because I always needed to get to the loo at home, now its because I don’t need to stop)
You might be interested to hear that the little town I’m in is named Monegall in county Offaly & as it happens President Barack Obama will visit here next week - his family tree has been traced back to the Kearney family here in the 1690s – the town has been painted up & is festooned with USA flags
So heres wishing the President a great visit & wishing many future years of good health to all of us & especially those who are in the midst of recovery from recent surgery (fitgal , serenitee, enigmawrap & newone) & those who are struggling with complications
UC since 1990, not a lot of fun
