Yes, it really is very sore - it may be a thrombosis. He's rather disappointed that he won't be going all the way to Dornoch to visit an old friend tomorrow - but he's going back to the hospital for a vein test to see what's going on. He got an injection this evening and was told to go home and act normally.
What did he do? Spent the night on the phone. That's normal.

Oh, yes - on a different subject - I've discovered my StatCounter tells me all sorts of interesting things about how folk find Pseudo-Supermum's website. The fascinating thing is that there's someone out there in Belfast who visits me quite often. Could I find out more than that, though? Nah! Your anonymity is still guaranteed. Thank you for visiting, all the same - I appreciate that.
