Its time to feel sorry for me.
I was admitted to Fairfield hospital in Bury last Sunday evening and then transferred overnight to North Manchester general hospital where they operated on me on arrival for about 4 hours. Apparently I had blocked and twisted bowels and they had to cut out about 8 inches of bowel. I've spent about 4 days being pumped with morphine for pain relief but they tell me I'll be discharged in the next couple of days but won't be able to drive for at least three weeks. So I'm going to miss a couple more home games.
Every cloud has a silver lining
