In October 2020 I was admitted for surgery to repair a hole in my Pulmonary vein, which seemed easy enough, however, when the bonnet was up they discovered a lot of other parts of the heart needed attention.

So I ended up having 7 procedures and a prolonged stay on ECMO and the ITU. I lost November 2020 and have no recollection whatsoever of where or what was going on?  Needless to say the team at UHS were actively seeking solutions to the numerous complications we encountered and brought me through a perilous period of recovery.  My poor wife Suzy had several conversations with the team regarding the likelihood of me not completing that journey.  These were terrible times for Suzy, to which I was totally oblivious.

Well I am now enjoying a continuing recovery and I am hoping to complete the Camino de Santiago before the year of Post Op is up.

My very good friend John Ewins has arranged the trip and Iwill accompany him, on the 800 Kilometre trek.  Other friends will involve themselves in the fundraising process.  So let’s see where we can get to?
