On Thursday 24th we said our goodbyes to Len and Viv on n.b. Mollie and then made our way down to Kent as Del had to have an operation to remove a lump which had appeared under his arm.
On Friday 25th we called the hospital at 7.00am to find out where Del was on the list to go in. It turned out that there were two bigger operations in front of him and we would get a call from them at around mid morning advising us when to come in. We got a call at 11.30am and we made our way to the hospital. After seeing the anesthetist and nurse for consent Del ended up going down to theatre at 3.00pm. The operation lasted fifty minutes and he came out of recovery at 4.30pm.... Al was waiting for him. After feeling sick to start with things improved after an anti sickness jab and Del was starting to drink well. He had a sandwich at 7.00pm and really felt a lot better by 8.00pm. He was finally released at 9.00pm by the doctor, and will now have to wait a week for the results of the lump.
On Saturday 26th, Del had had a good night and found out that he had a patch on his leg of shaved hair! Al had not such a good night, worried about Del, but in the morning things seemed fine.
