  • I am being strictly limited to a few minutes on the internet today by Christine, but finally back home. I had been somewhat poorly for 4 days and in bed most of them, thought it was the flu, but got to the point where it was clearly something else. Thankfully; I have a brilliant partner and she called my GP Surgery, to her eternal credit my GP was here within 15 minutes and after 20 minutes decided I needed to be admitted to Hospital.

    I’ve watched Holby + Casualty for years but never thought I’d hear the word tachycardic about me, temperature was approaching 40, I think thats about 104 in old money. They though pneumonia but my GP had suggested discitis, inflamation of the discs/spine caused by infection/fever. So 2 days on various drips and tests and I am at least well enough to be home. I have a lot of tests and scans to come, but thats for the coming days and weeks.

    The support I have from Mike and the Tipsters means we can and have kept the SP2A show on the road, and will continue to do so. I may not be tipping myself for a while but we have more than enough expertise; so rest assured that the service will continue trying to find winners.

    The care and treatment I go from GP; Hospital; our bloody marvellous NHS was absolutely magnificent; the process and procedures may do your head in, the number of managers walking round doing little may annoy; but the front line GP; Paramedic; Nurses; Doctors I can’t say too much praiseworthy; they are world class.

    I have also been truly humbled to read and hear of messages from R2P Members who I have only known for a few months; some have made me very emotional; you are a fantastic, informed, friendly and outstanding group, and I appreciate every comment, more that I can say. I will at some point get round to responding to each one.

    The tips will continue, the admin may be a bit creaky whilst we catch up and i may not be fully active for a few weeks, but THANK YOU and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.

    • Must be great to be home and know you can look forward to good treatment and recovery in the new year. My experience, on emergency admission 6 months ago, replicates yours and I live in Hants.
      A Happy New Year to you both.

    • Josh mentioned the possibility of a free trial the other day. Is that still on?

      • Hey…not a free trial. Will be the same deal as the first ever 3 month offer we did… 67 for 3 months (50% off) and money back offered if they fail to make a profit in the 3 months. They made well over 200 points in first trial. If you want to add a tipping/race adviser service to your armoury there is no better.
        New trial will be offered in coming days,once Ian back to full strength etc. You won’t miss it.
