And now for some good news….

I heard today that Rog should be coming out of hospital sometime over the weekend.  No surgery is required, but he will be on antibiotics for 6 months to ensure that the infection clears up.  We will have to stay put at Willowtree for a while as he will have to go back for a checkup in 2 or 3 weeks time, but, as long as all is well we should be able to start moving again sometime in August.

Once again, thanks to everyone for your good wishes and offers of help, loads from people we’ve never even met.  It’s certainly a privilege to belong to such a kind and caring community.

The blog will probably take a rest for the next few weeks, as there won’ t be anything to blog about, but if anything changes I’ll be sure to let all our readers know.

Ta ta for now.


  1. Pip,
    I sincerely hope that the medical staff have finally got to the bottom of Roger's health problem and that AB's do the trick! Best wishes, we'll be thinking of you both.

  4. So glad to hear no op is necessary. Hope Rog feels much better and that staying put doesn't get too frustrating.

  5. Still seems strange not sharing locks with you after all this time, but at least they are getting Rog sorted out now and no doubt we will meet up again soon.
    Love to both

  6. That's great news - hope his recovery progresses smoothly.

    We're hoping to do the London ring in August, if you're still at Willowtree we'll give you a wave!

  7. A slight change of plan - Rog will probably not be out until Monday now as they have changed his antibiotic from a broad spectrum one to one that specifically targets his particular bug, and they want to do blood tests before he leaves to make sure that it is working. Glad that they are being thorough, and what's one more day??

  8. fantastic news! regards to both of you.
