We're are just back from visiting and the operation went well, although dad is still very poorly, which is only to be expected.
I feel much better knowing it is all done and we will have him back to his cantankerous self again soon.
I spoke to his nurse who is lovely and sh said it took a little longer than expected as he went to theatre at 9am but didn't come back till 12.55pm but since she has been pleased with him.
He was very sleepy still and we didn't disturb him as we thought at least while he's sleeping he is not feeling the pain.
I have managed a to get a card finished but light has beaten me so tomorrow I'll get that on here (fingers Crossed)
