    Now New Year’s Eve looms like a throng of consultants in the morning rush to get us breakfasted, washed and ready for what excitement hospital days hold. Amazingly, I asked to see a doctor and hours later one turned up…part to answer my question about arm pain – it’s normal,...

    Doctor One Morning Mr Parker, how are we doing today. Are you in any pain? I think we’re in the same stage. Medically we’ve done everything for you. Your body just needs time. Maybe in a few days we might move you to a community hospital. Ok, great. Doctor Two...

    Well, it had to be said – with my recent car battling in the A40 just outside Cheltenham, this is the result, so watch out kiddies! This is me post-op looking surprisingly chipper! The glasses you might be able to spy are the winners trophy from Prescott Photographic “best on...

    Well, it’s been a while since I was admitted to hospital after a car accident, which mystery still surrounds for me at least. I know it was head on and I was on the right side of the road. Other that that, it’s a gooey splodge of a memory. I’m...
