There are bloggers who delight in shouting every tiny detail of their lives at the internet. I'm not one of those bloggers.
Tomorrow I'm going into hospital for a bladder operation - if you're so-minded and not at all squeamish you can google on "Bladder Neck Incision" to get way too much information about the procedure. YouTube even have a video of the operation, which I warn you does look like a cross between the end of "2001 - A Space Odyssey" and a slasher movie.
I didn't tell you about all the delightful preliminaries and probes and investigation over the last few months, but I didn't particularly want to say and I'm pretty certain you didn't really want to know.
I'm likely to be in hospital for a couple of nights and then at home straying no far from the toilet for a couple of weeks.
The upshot of this for you is that I'll either be strangely quiet or blogging every hour on the hour for the next few weeks.
Further bulletins as events warrant.
