Cheated the Grim ripper again!
I for one am glad As you gave me a lot of help and encouragement last winter when I fitted EFI to Spitty(still not right but have done 5000 miles so can not be that bad?)
I will have to wait until the new engine is built now!
Just overhauled a differential(I hope it does not whine or I will be on the Wine!)
Don't panic - I'm alive.......! Couldn't post yesterday as poxy iphone had forgotten my forum password (so had I) and I didn't escape until this the morning.
Short version - It's done. I kept most of the thyroid (just the isthmus removed), which is best-case scenario. Looks like someone has tried to cut my throat and feels like it too. Now stuck back together with superglue. No stitches. No dressing. Provided the biopsy doesn't throw up any nasties (not expected to), that should be the end of the story.
Bit weary now thanks to the current NHS tactic of stashing of any excess dementia patients (forced by the national shortage of nursing home places) on medical wards, which makes them very noisy places at night.......
I may write a more detailed account when I've recovered a bit and the horror has worn off.......
John will be pleased to hear that the anaesthesia was entirely trouble-free apart from a persistent dry-mouth. I could have done with another about ten o clock last night!
Your best wishes are much appreciated
