Good Morning From North Wales.

Ive been a bit quite of late, this was to do with my dearly departed kidney stones were giving me gyp.
The fantastic Consultant Darth Vader spent 21'2 hours playing space invaders in my kidney on Tuesday morning and reported back to mission control he got all the klingons.
I have not been in a hospital for a long time and at times I have been critical of the NHS. The care and service was fantastic, every step of the way they explained the steps in detail.
Andy M the catheter was removed from me yesterday morning.I cannot contemplate what you went through.
The funniest moment was watching a nurse watching Harry eating a smoked salmon sandwich whilst observing the catheter tube and bag.His comment about needing a glass of Rose from the wine box was

I hope you are feeling better. At least they didn't remove your sense of humor.

Yeah, but there's always a planetoid or asteroid in hiding, waiting to become the next kidney equivelent of a hemroid! I recently experienced the joy of living with a stint for a week, more or less. 5mm, pass go. 7mm that would be a big NO! The pain killers reinforced the "better living through chemistry" slogan of the '70s.

I am a horrible patient, I bring my own supplies to remove items dangling from my orifices and other body parts.

Glad things are better Bolas, tell Harry he should be thinking Chardonnay when looking at a catheter bag, not a Rosé.

Glad to see you back and feeling better. I hate being in hospital, avoid them like the plague.

I'm glad you still have your sense of humor Bolas and I'm glad you're feeling better. Kidney stones are about as far from fun as a cardboard lean-to is from a galactic space ship.
