It was sunny and cool today, but the letter put a bigger dampener on the day than the weather ever could.

As we were preparing to load the boat with enough supplies to sustain us till Xmas our roller coaster ride continued with the arrival of a letter from Stanmore hospital requesting I get my damaged leg checked as some laboratory tests on tissue removed during the operation had belatedly indicated possible traces of cancer. The cells could be dead and may relate to the lymphoma I had over twenty years ago which was cured by the Royal Marsden hospital at the time. Having got over the shock we are attempting to re-visit the hospital at the earliest opportunity and hope they can confirm there is no cause for concern. With luck we can continue with our boating plans and avoid unloading all those supplies again.
