I just wanted to say thanks…

Day two and I’ve woken up feeling like crap. My whole body feels battered and misshapen, my knee is throbbing, stinging and tender, a reminder of yesterdays operation and “no” nurse on ward 18, I haven’t taken my painkillers yet.
I turn now to the staff of the Leicester General Hospital, to the nurses who booked me in, to the anaesthetist team who kept me asleep though the surgery, to consultant Mr Brown and his invisible craftsmanship on my knee, to the nurses in the recovery room, and to the nurses in ward 18 and not forgetting the physio who showed me how to walk with crutches, I just wish to say “thank you” to you all. You all made a harrowing event bearable.
