I see that Grahame's site is closed due to illness. Let us hope that it is nothing too serious. As we know he has suffered quite badly in recent times and I wish him a speedy recovery, as I'm sure do all other members.

I hope everything will be ok. It must have been sad for him to miss the Harpenden meeting.

Just been speaking to the editor of 9.5 magazine and he tells me that Grahame has back trouble possibly caused by lifting items of heavy equipment in his garage.
As we get older (me included) the lifting of heavy projectors does become a problem and can easily cause an injury.

Thanks for the update Maurice and we wish him well for a speedy recovery.

Take care guys and if necessary, just get a close young fit relative to do all of your lifting tasks for you.
i am sure everyone has someone who would be willing to assist you all, even a friendly Neighbour perhaps? [Wink]

Just heard that Grahame's source of pain is a kidney stone.
It is hoped that it may pass naturally, however, it might be necessary for Grahame to have an operation.

That's sad news about Grahame.
He is such a nice man and always finds time for a conversation
with me over the phone with any enquiry regarding 9.5mm.
I wish him a speedy recovery.

As someone also suffering with a kidney stone Grahame has my deepest sympathy.I'm currently writing this in hospital - I've never known so much pain and ongoing discomfort. Finally having mine blasted on the 10th, I hope Grahame's procedure isn't far behind.

Latest update on 30 October from Grahame's web-page.

"Infected colon/kidney & kidney stone. Now out of hospital but recuperating - waiting for another op to remove the stone and stent! Not good getting old!"

Never heard of "stent" but Google revealed:- "A small mesh tube."

Lucky you Maurice!

Stent is a word we sadly became very aware of in our household.
Not good i'm afraid! [Frown]

Appreciate the update though thanks Maurice. [Wink]

STENT is a word I know all to well from experience.
I have 2 in each of my "good" heart arteries to keep the blood flowing.
The 3rd artery is totally blocked and shrivelled.

As at 2nd December 2016 Grahame reports:-
"I am feeling OK now! Waiting for another op. I'm mostly home now - getting back to normal (sorry if things are a bit slow!). Have put my sales lists up again today."
This is good news.

I have spoken to Grahame, he is in great spirits and pleased that he has now been able to bring his sale items back on-line.
He has what he describes as a "by-pass" at the moment, this is until the large stone has been removed, probably in January, by a minor operation.

Guess the bypass is the same that I had, a tube between kidney and bladder so you can pass urine as the stone blocks the usual tube. Bloody uncomfortable, but not as bad as the stone itself.
