Shazbot Saturday.

Do I need to say more? Poor Paula and Ruth know exactly what I'm talking about. Actually for them it was shazbot Friday, it's only shazbot Saturday because that is when I read their news.

I feel quite guilty reporting that everything is currently fine here touch wood, lots of wood, where's the nearest forest? Oh we're in the Black Country we don't have forests! We had a meeting with Dr SB yesterday, nothing much to report, he merely repeated the results we'd heard previously and commented on Mike's kidneys, which of course we already knew about. We learnt that the doctors at our hospital (may be it's national) cannot write sick notes for out-patients, so Mike's got to get a GP appointment for next week. All seems overly complicated to me! For those who might be curious, Mike's paraprotein has dropped from 31 to 19, but don't ask me what units they are, for all I know it could be barleycorns! Good news any way.
