Just picked up this news on Fetch last night The word "tragedy" is much overused these days, but for this to happen to such a young, genuine, well thought of, family man is truly tragic.
Everyone has wonderful things to say about him. Perhaps in due course, someone on here close to him and his family could collate these messages and pass them to his family, it may be some comfort to realise just what a positive influence he had on so many people.
Like others, I only really met him a few times, but he always seemed to have a genuine smile on his face. And perhaps that's the best thing I can say about him (the best thing you can say about anyone!) ... he was, it seemed to me, a really genuine person. What you saw was what you got.
I well remember our trip to Amsterdam and being told I was rooming with this guy I'd never met before....and yet it was easy because he was great company and easy to get on with. And after that, there was always a cheery hello when I saw him.
My condolences to his family.....I can't imagine how they're feeling
Back from hospital now - went in at 7.30 and out by 11.30. ( left knee )Had meniscus cartilage trimmed and snipped, some other debris cleaned out and a biopsy of tumor/fatty tissue at the back of knee taken.
(right knee) had deep steroid injection put in
Good luck with the recovery AA, would be lovely to see you sometime, you're welcome up in Yorkshire any time you fancy a few days away
When I first came aroung after anaesthetic I apparently told the elderly female anaethetist that I was taking her out for dinner tonight and that I was a footballer who played for Birmingham??? Have no recollection of that at all.
Could be worse...when I came round from my cartilage op, I apparently proposed to my then g/f!
Fanastic running ER. Your story sounds just like mine - stomach probs being the issue, not the legs.
So sorry you didn't achieve your goal this time, but just treat it as a warm up. You'll be celebrating in 5 weeks time
Aye, sounds very much the same UM. And it's so annoying isn't it? I expected the legs to give up and give me lots of pain...but they never did. I've read a few accounts from people who've done the BG though, and stomach problems is a pretty common complaint. The decisive factor is that they've just ploughed on through it, with greater mental strength than I showed on the day. Roll on the 18th, my head will be much more focused.
