    I've had a letter from the hospital informing me that my TLKR scheduled for 23 May has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. Going to ring them tomorrow to find out why. The wait goes on

    Phoned the hospital about the cancellation. They've got an emergency admission. I've asked them to let me know when they get a cancellation so I can get it done
