I'm sure I read most of that article somewhere before, but the 'now cancer-free' bit may be the new part ! - superb !.
I still find it difficult to believe how many bits of him have been removed, so I'm treating the details of the operation as having been slightly lost in translation .

Yep, must admit I had the same reaction as ed at first. I will change the thread title to make it less worrying.

Thank you, subtle but effective.
