Subject: Les Barker ill
From: Surreysinger
Date: 07 Jan 08 - 05:41 PM

I started a separate thread to notify people of a cancellation of Les's gig in Guildford due to his illness - he had a mild heart attack (whatever "mild" in those circumstances means). For full details, and other people's messages go here Someone suggested that another thread should be started to alert people to his situation - which I've now done. I'm loath to alter the heading of the other thread, though, as it's intended to alert anyone who may have booked for that particular gig to the circumstances for Friday.

We're expecting him at JennyO's club this year. And we'll expect some good hospital poems, too.

And I'll be there to collect the money, see you then, Les.

Get well soon, you'll feel better.

My experience in Emergency wired to a heart monitor was that the next bed was kept for drunks-who-had-fallen-over-and-might-have-done-themselves-an-injury. There were a lot of them that Saturday night. And they all had the same difficulty in answering the Registrar's questions.

(Heart proc. in August 2006 helped!)Now I have loads of pills and drink less but otherwise ok back working climbing scaffolding, ladders etc. so chin up Les weren't we the lucky ones, at least four of my friends had their one and only cardiac infarction this year which saddens me, but hey, so far so good.

All best wishes and hugs -
