State of Play

Those darned operations, three of them, have been a distraction.  The blog was intended to be about bits and pieces of my life including some things I’d not talked about before; and occasionally to track the MND and how it’s affecting me; and thereby helping others to understand it. Then in September an operation didn’t work.  In October a second, different one, didn’t work.  And finally in November the surgeons made it.  Unexpected drama but it’s now over.  A few friends have asked for an update on how the whole body is doing, so here it is in the attachment.  It can be unpleasant so please don’t read it if you’re squeamish about such things.  Anyway, it’s the state of play as of today.

  2. Thank you, dear Dave, for sharing this so bravely and openly with us. I’m sure it was tiring and hard to write. Very hard for friends to read of so many difficulties but so very much harder for you to live with. You are the most courageous and least self pitying of men and we love you.

What’s this strange title?  Well, it’s because for an hour a day I’m experiencing the rest of humanity at its hip height. It’s the Peacemobile of course.  Rolling through the streets of London and...
