    I have always known that my bloke was one in a million, but it seems that was a little underestimation! Turns out, given today's results that he is one in a billion. Let me explain ...... After sitting in the waiting room in the hospital with interview stomach of what seemed like an eternity we were called through. We thought we were seeing the specialist uro-oncology nurse from the department so we were somewhat surprised to see both her and the consultant in the room. (Gulp!) They tell us...

The op was a success - he didn't lose his kidney, spleen, or any part of his bowel (which it shared blood vessels with).
