John survived his carotid artery clean out without any complications other than a very sore throat. He will be discharged from LRI on Sunday 2nd August into the arms of his long-suffering wife Judith.
He came home but was so appalled by the noise in the village he decided to go back in for another couple of days rest. He is now back in the arms of his family with strict instructions NOT to exert himself. He is Googling the word exertion and taking things easy as his head is apparently only held on by super glue. This business of sitting about like a coiled spring waiting to respond to any call has been put on hold for a while.
