Yesterday we had a sudden shock when my wife was rushed into Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge suffering from severe back pains and sickness. The day before she had been fit and well. She has been diagnosed with acute cholecystitis and is now on intravenous antibiotics and drips.
As Julian G4ILO has recently found, life has a nasty habit of suddenly throwing a spanner in the works, usually just when things are going very well. Hopefully she will make a full recovery although she has to have her gall bladder removed in the next 6-8 weeks.
....and I haven't a clue how to drive the washing machine :-)
