As Wednesday approaches ...

As Wednesday approaches we get another postponement of the op! This time it's postponed until next Wednesday (26th November). The same procedure - ring up on Wednesday afternoon to check bed availability ready for the op on the Thursday.

I've lost count of how many postponements we've had now ! I did think it might go ahead this week as me and Dad have tickets to go watch Revolution at the Velodrome in Manchester on Saturday night but at least Dad gets to watch the cycling !

Will keep you posted on any more updates

It's postponed again !

Dad's op has been postponed again - is this 4th or 5th postponement I've lost count! He was scheduled to go in on Sunday 16th with op on Monday 17th. However it's been put back again and he is now scheduled to go in on Wednesday 19th with op Wednesday 20th!

Crossing fingers hasn't worked so far ... his original date was 15th October, he could have been well on the way to recovery now if he'd had it done then!

Lastest Update

Dad has heard from the hospital again today. He is NOT going in this Sunday but hopefully it will be next Sunday (16th) with the op scheduled for Monday 17th. He needs another pre-op as it's been that long since his last and that will be on Monday 10th November. Again everything is provisional and subject to change at the last minute !

Dad was out doing his "big" shop when the hospital rang and left a message ... at least his fridge and cupboards are well stocked for the week.

Postponed AGAIN !

Dad has just had a telephone call to say they've postponed the op again!
He "might"be going in on Sunday now, with op on Monday but we need to wait and see.
Will keep you updated when we know more.

Keeping fingers crossed

We are keeping our fingers crossed that they have a bed for Dad tomorrow. He needs to ring up after 2.00 to check. He's been having his anti-bacterial washes again which I think have done something to his head as he's even cleaned up today !

Will keep you posted and many thanks for everyone that has sent Dad good wishes so far !

New Date

A quick update.  Dad had a message left on his phone this afternoon with a new date. Goes in on Wednesday 5th November and operation on Thursday 6th. Again it will be subject to beds being available but he's back on this list !

Will keep you posted of any updates.

Still no news on a date

Just to keep you posted. Dad hasn't got a new date yet. He rang up on Wednesday and they are going to "come up" with a plan. So hopefully it won't be too long before we get some news.
