It is with
regret that I have to inform visitors to this site
that I only returned from Hospital recently having spent five weeks in the Intensive Care
Unit and General Ward for a Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. (30th March 2008)
I am told that I am extremely lucky to have survived this operation but it has left me
about two stone lighter and with little in the way of leg or arm muscles left. As such I
now have to build up my strength and learn to walk and control my hands again.
Because of the above I unfortunately have to temporarily, maybe
permanently, withdraw all of the Services that I used to supply, with the exception of
supplying Service Data, and advertisements to my 'For Sale & Wanted' section.
I will be unable to supply any valves, or currently do any repairs. I will be contacting
anybody whose repairs I currently have directly so that they can decide on a course of
I am sorry that I can no longer supply the services that I used to, but the doctors think
that it will be between one and one an a half years before a full recovery will be
effective, and apparently even then not all of my functions may return to the their full
prior operation effectiveness.
If in time to come I find that I can start taking on repairs or have the strength to
search out valves etc. then I will update this statement.
