Oh gentle reader, please be still. Worry ye not a minute longer, for i will live.
Had a minor operation on my thumb this afternoon (well a nice lady GP sliced it open) to remove some aggressive infection... once test results are in i will of course be confirming the exact strain of bacteria - a subject i know you will all be hotly debating in the coming days.
Any donations, please send cash to me, flowers and charity donations not necessary.
As you will understand, my bravery in this matter has been incredible, so if i do not answer emails immediately, be grateful that your beloved author breathes yet.
