Thankyou for writing your story Alan I know I was shocked at the way you wrote some of it.I think it was more of a case of me possibly facing a similar operation that played more on my mind. You did the correct thing in continuing and Im gratefull for you finishing it I have learnt a lot.
And I feel proud to say I think of you as a special freind and look forward to meeting you in person sometime soon I hope.You are a big inspiration to me even if I do take the [**BLEEP**].

Fabulous story, Alan. Thank you for reliving and sharing. I do think it has the potential to be publishable and wonder what the next steps might be to find out. Let us know if you end up going in that direction.

On another note - you have said that the AS monster is starting to cause you to bend again. Is that in the same area or higher up? I had thought that the metalwork you have would help to prevent that part of your spine from moving (bending). Is there anything you can do (excercise, drugs etc.) at this stage to prevent it continuing?

yes, the doctors and nurses. Well said Mig. They are the heroes of this story, I was just there for the tea and the lemonade.

My trust was totally in them, they rewarded the trust millionfold


they earned lots of points. Ahaaaaaa

Thank you Wendy. Have actually begun to edit the story. to clean it up, to make more chronological and remove error and contradiction, to make a slightly better read if I am able.

When it is done, I will send it to you, see what you think of it as a continuous read, i hope i can make it worthwhile.

As for the bending, yes over the top of the rods, same place as Kevin but nowhere near as extreme as his. If I live a reasonably long life though I fear that it will head towards what Kevin endures.

It doesnt matter though, I have been lucky enough to win the world cup once already, mustn't be greedy and demand to win it again.


Thank you so much for keeping me going with this.

Just edited the photos in your last chapter so that it shows both before & after surgery, as well as your pretty daughters as the ladies they are now, all grown up! I bet they are as proud of you as you are of them, Alan. (sorry about the bike! lol) I'd love to know what Ruth and Esther's predominant memories are from back then, when their Dad suddenly became much taller. I bet it wasn't the lemonade!

Alan, I hope you might include some detail about the mark across your chest too, in the post op photo... it's missing from your story!

I see, so that's where all the points went, no wonder you are so stingy with them now. lol

Hi Kevin, yes they are lovely, both 6 feet tall brainy and gorgeous, Mother, well let me explain.


My wife complains bitterly when she enters a shop with her 2 daughters, the conversation is usually preceded with a few looks at her then at the girls then back at her....


"Your husband is tall is he?"


Cos my wife is 5 feet 3. She usually sneers at the shop worker. So nope take after me they do.......lol


Odd though that after all that has happened, I am still thought of as tall.

Do people still see you as a tall man, or do you think your stooping has changed their perceptions?


But I do appreciate your final insult....lol
