This afternoon we head out to Barnsley General for an appointment to ready us all for the operation. Basically we will head into the hospital on the 8th August for 8am where he will be readied and then taken in for the operation according to the schedule. It will take just 10 minutes to perform the task although he will not be back around for an hour or so, whereupon we will need to wait for approximately 8 hours before they will consider letting him go home. Even then he needs to have eaten and show that he has no problems doing so.
So, he is now fully aware that the operation is taking place and is as ready as he will ever be – we clearly will not be ready for the operation regardless of when it takes place….
