Get On Yer Bike

Dear friends,

I hope this finds you well.

The last 2 weeks have been fruitful for me in several ways.  My condition remains stable, with strength improving each day.

I am out of bed and going walk about in the chair around this huge state of the art hospital several times a week. Very liberating.

The other major advancement is every day I am now on my bike machine (only possible due to Reidy & Baz humphing it here from my house, thanks again guys). Within a few days, I am doing 20 minutes and 1.5 miles per day, and looking to increase. Every rotation feels great.

Appreciate the continued visits. We always seem to have a lot of laughs. Keep coming, you might spot me on my bike.

Live Life.

Huge thanks to Glasgow’s NHS Southern General Hospital


2 weeks ago I attended the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow for a scheduled procedure to safeguard food and nutrition intake long into the future.

The procedure itself was a success and I would like to take a moment to thank all NHS staff, in particular my surgeon, consultant, and the many nurses and carers on Ward 23. All went way and above the call of duty to make my time there as comfortable as possible.

2 weeks on, I am fully recovered from the procedure and now looking forward to the many exciting Gavinliveslife events planned over the coming months.
