This message from Martyn's wife Danni

Martyn has not been well, but is on the mend.

We took him into Guildford Hospital on the 27th of December as he was in extreme pain due to his sciatica. He was kept in hospital as he needed an epidural. Sadly, he then ended up with ‘in hospital’ pneumonia to add to the challenge, so he was on drips for antibiotics and fluids, this was not enough.
Completely out of the blue his gall bladder perforated which then meant that it had to be removed straightaway. The surgery has gone well and they are very pleased with the results. We hope to have him home soon.

This was part of an e-mail from our dear friend Eric Bogle, this made Martyn and I laugh.

‘Mind you, as he has had the unmitigated gall to present himself as a singer and entertainer over the past 50 years or so, I’m not surprised that his gall bladder has finally called it quits….and I always thought Martyn didn’t need drugs to have hallucinations’

Love to you all,
Danni xx
