Just to advise that Jimmie Blackburn has been turned into North Shore Hospital with a gall stone which was not behaving. He has had an operation to remove the said culprit and is slowly on the mend and feeling quite ‘chipper’.
Update – Jim has now been released from the North Shore sickbay and is now convelescing at the home of his son Allan in Orewa. It is going to be a slow and upward struggle, but one Jim, I am sure is going to climb. He can be contacted on 09 427 6286.
