Straight to the Pub.

Last-minute post before my flight tomorrow morning. I’m still feeling very up and down, and hoping that this vacation will do me some good, health-wise. The heartening news is that more tests and inquiries were done this week, all with positively clean results. If I’m actually sick or injured, just about the entire world is fooled.

Local friends, I’ll have my phone with me, but I can’t promise it will work cleanly in the U.K. I’ll certainly be in e-mail contact for the extent of the trip, and I invite you to contact me as normal, with any requests for goods obtained or services rendered in Scotland. Edinburgh friends, I’m in town at 10:00 AM on Sunday, and you can bet your sweet patooties that I’ll be at the Monkey for a spell that evening. Hope to see you there.

    Have a good flight.
    I know exactly where your coming from with the health concerns.
    While you have not had the pleasure of lying on a hospital bed for weeks on end (and hope you never have to) your mind and imagination trawl up such scenarios that I had myself going 50 different ways even before they had done the first blood test.
    I think the only nuggets of advice I can give are just to keep going and rely on friends and family for support. It's hard, but if you stop and let yourself ponder too many negative thoughts then, as a consultant advised me, you will think yourself to death. Focus on something even it is a small goal.
    Every clean test result is a blessing!
    All the best and enjoy the trip. The weather so far had been good!

    This is sincere. I can't imagine what you had to go through for so long, and I'm only delighted that it turned out without incident. It doesn't mollify the discomfort you went through, but I'm glad you're on the mend and feeling tons better.
    In Aberdeen just now; the trip is great and it feels like coming home.

    Thank you for this good wish. It is a healing place, and my friends here are splendid and help the process immensely. I'm a lucky man.

    I hope you have a wonderful trip and that all this medical stuff just fades away into the background and lets you be.
    Let us know when you're back so we can have our quarterly visit.

    I can't wait to see you again. Been keeping up with your own fever and flu issues, and I'm glad that it's on the wane. Lots of pictures to follow!
