Get well soon, Dad

My dad had a heart bypass operation today, and the good news is that it went well, he is in recovery, sedated and breathing unaided.

Once active again, he will doubtless be singing the praises of our beloved NHS. After all, he contributed to its establishment when, as an 8-year-old boy in 1945, he leafleted the streets of Scarborough, singing "Vote vote vote for Mr Attlee, throw Mr Churchill down the stairs".
