Saturday 25th August. St Richard’s Hospital Chichester.

Now I don’t know what everybody knows or doesn’t! So please forgive me if I repeat! I don’t know too much myself!

I was admitted to St Richard’s hospital on the 22nd July in a lot of pain and no idea what was causing it!

After spending a few days in hospital being passed from ward to ward! The ugly truth of what was actually wrong with me reared its head! I had sepsis and organs on my body were rapidly starting to shut down!

Apparently I was then put on a respirator for a week!

Not that I remember any of that it’s just what I’ve been told! But apparently I’m lucky to still be here!

But that’s all in the past and obviously I survived!

I’ve now got months of recovery to look forward to both in hospital and at home!

So it could be a while before I’m back on the bike, but never fear I will return at some point! And please don’t think I’m ignoring you if you’ve sent me a message, I will reply, it’s just I’m finding everything hard work at the moment!

Odd Photos Taken In July 2018

Odd photos taken in July 2018 as Garry has travelled around on his bike.

Cycling trips to the New Forest and Isle of Wight. And an unfortunate trip to the hospital, which resulted in Garry being admitted to the intensive care unit and put in an induced coma!
