Hi Geoff. Just wandering the latest on Alex. Is he out of hospital?
He's doing fine. Not ready to oblige the Forum's coffin-chaser just yet

I don't want to bore people but since you asked...

I'm out of hospital but still have to attend regularly. Physically, I still struggle a bit (good excuse for getting out of housework!).
Kidneys continue to improve. My eyesight seems back to normal (full test early in the New Year). Awaiting an MRI.
My voice is unimpaired!!

I still don't remember anything of my first two weeks in hospital, but that may not be a bad thing. Memory still not as good as it should be (but again see above re housework!)

All in all, things could be a lot worse. The only bad news is that my sense of humour has not improved.

Thanks everyone for the kind wishes sent on various platforms. Genuinely much appreciated at what was a difficult time.

I should be fit for otb chess before otb chess is ready to continue!!!!!

Hi Simon,

Lara says Alex is doing find and expects to be fit before OTB chess starts up again,

She also added that he is using this to get out of housework...er...oops!...hello Alex, are you OK mate?

Keeping him off the computer is perhaps too much of a challenge even for Lara :roll:

Good to read Alex saying his "voice is unimpaired".
Perhaps there might be a remake soon of Flash Gordon.
I think Alex will be an excellent Prince Vultan.
Give Brian Blessed a run for his money.
