Email from Barrie :-
Just to bring you up to date, I went to see the consultant on Tuesday (10th), he has decided my liver is inflamed with infection and I need to see someone who is a specialist so is sending me to see a professor Gleason at Sheffield under an urgent appointment so we are now waiting for this which could be two to four weeks, will keep you informed.
Barrie & Pauline.
