Things I have learnt over the last few days:
1) I am a complete and utter wimp.
2) Laughing is difficult but possible.
3) No matter how much you hold your stitches, a cough hurts.
4) Sneezing is 10 times worse than coughing.
5) Holding your stitches while being sick doesn't help one bit it just spoils your aim. It's agony pure and simple.
6) I now know how ill Mike will be feeling during SCT.
