    Shipmates !


    About 8.30pm., this evening (12/6/19, Oz Time) I received a phone call from Vernon's dear wife, Irene. She asked if I would post the following for your information. Vernon was transferred to Westmead Hospital today pending his operation scheduled for 11.00am. tomorrow morning (13.6.19). His surgeon advises that the procedure may take a little longer than usual, but is confidant. Vernon is resting comfortably, albeit a little apprehensive...who wouldn't be? Irene said that today she received the card sent by, Happy Daze John, on behalf of all members and expressed her sincere gratitude to you all. She also told me that tomorrow evening, following the operation, she will give me an update which, of course, I will pass on to you.

    Shipmates,

    Have spoken to Irene this evening and you will, I'm sure, be pleased to learn that Vernon is fine. He underwent his operation yesterday. The procedure lasted 4 and a half hours and he came through it all with flying colours. Contrary to what he was expecting, the surgeon(s) decided it was only necessary to carry out a triple bypass rather than the five or six he had anticipated. Irene said that when the doctors told him this, Vernon said, "" Well don't think you're coming back to have another go ! " Today, he's been quite chirpy, sitting up in bed and annoying the nurses, no doubt pleased the worst is behind him. Tomorrow, they are going to get him up and take him for 'walkies'. If he progresses as expected, the doctors will be sending him home next Wednesday or Thursday. They don't hang about do they ? I hope to see him sometime next week and will give you a further update when I do.

    b.r. ......... Roger

    I telephoned Irene this morning (evening in Aust) and I am delighted to say she was very upbeat, happy and obviously mightily relieved, as we all are.
