    Today, I will try and says zis onlee wunce! Met Jimmy Robbo at the butcher’s on Saturday morning. He had part of his bowel removed and then had a temporary stoma followed by a reconnection.

I rang Lee's GP and of course had to wait for him to ring me back because you can only talk to the nurse initially, however, I asked if there was any chance that the oxycontin 20mg could be increased, as Lee is taking six oxynorm a day. Last time she was very ill, and toxic on 50mg x 2 a day as well has having a chest infection, but the toxidity was due to the combination of high dose, lack of fluids...
