on the mend
Early on Saturday evening he had an operation on his abdomen, which went on for over three hours.
The surgeons removed a nasty abscess, and mentioned they’ll need to operate again in two months!
Despite it all the nurses say Joe’s a good patient, and he certainly seemed pretty cheerful (given the circumstances).
It was certainly good to see him after splashing through the puddles on A23 to East Surrey Hospital.
Hopefully we’ll see him home again soon.
