The journey begins...

Had my operation yesterday and would like to say a big Thank You to all the staff at the Day Case Surgery Unit at Westmoreland General, Kendal who made the whole experience as stress-free as possible.
Today finds me very sore, with a bruised groin sporting two whopping dressings. The ibuprofen+paracetamol is dulling the pain and, as long as I don't move below the waist, I'm all right.
In fact, today is a very good day. I'm thinking of it as the start of getting back out on the fells. I've just got to heal, strengthen, walk, and then, finally, finally, run. I'll get there.


  1. sounds painful mind! steady away as i know you will. look forward to having a trot out with you again. trust you're being waited on hand and foot like royalty?

  2. Hi UC
    If Mrs HF works even harder on my behalf she'll be promoted to Slave, First Class. I couldn't be in better hands.

  3. Glad to hear the surgery went well and hope the soreness and bruising goes away soon. Look forward to doing battle with you again at some future event - though it wont be the Lowther Run, I think it's been cancelled for good.
    Here's wishing you well.
