Nell is in Digby Ward, Lincoln Hospital; prognosis is good and they have put her onto strong muscle relaxants and a change of painkillers and it seems that the op on Thursday has managed to get the stone to move, so the ongoing thought is that it may be possible for Nell to pass the stone, despite its large size but with the help of the drugs.

Spoke to her this morning and she thinks she might be allowed home tomorrow - Nell hates hospitals, if she can escape their clutches she will, despite the fact that I did not take any outdoor clothes for her, I have no doubt that she will arrive in a taxi.

Have not been able to find anyone with a car to take me over to Lincoln and it is around 80 return on a Sunday, the public transport is not wheelchair accessible and most of the taxis do not work on Sundays around here - still in the Middle Ages and one is better off taking a galley up the river and then along the Roman Canal to Lincoln - this is a 3 day round trip.

Anyway we are on mobile phones to each other and Nell is drugged up and does not make much sense on the phone because she keeps falling asleep.

Oddenstein has rigged up a child's blowup pool as a lifeboat cum swamp, the recent heavy rain and a couple of films set his brain racing (to get away from the body) and the need for comfort and safety.

He has a solar clock (sun dial) and a lunar clock (moon dial) and a battery television, which runs on salt water, a bit difficult on a fresh water river but he does have an emergency bag of salt.

Have been talking through with Nell as to how we move the crocs from Florida to Spaghetti Junction near Birmingham, England.

Came up with a quantum fluctuation in the water table, so that the crocs get transported from Florida and the elephants and rhino get osmotically and reciprocally transported from Kenya - every action has an equal and opposite reaction aka 'quid pro quo'.

Watched Spaghetti being built - now that takes me back! When I left Birmingham for the last time in 2002 , I'd spent to much time stuck on it in traffic jam's when I was covering shifts at the City Hospital!
Crocs can of course travel by stealth, in the canal that runs underneath!

I had a look at the old maps and it was originally a marsh through which flowed a river, then the canal was built and then a railway, then a road or two and then the elevated highway.

From a story point of view it is a nexus and an ideal starting line for the Crocs to travel away from in their search for a luxury swamp.

Yes, the problem is moving them over to Newark.

There are 3 Newarks in England and 1 in the Orkneys and then, as far as I know, there are 29 worldwide which trace themselves back to Newark, Nottinghamshire.

Obviously with the carpet of reality it opens up a pile of sub-themes if I base the crocs in Newark.

I had added 2 bipeds to the story in order to make it more accessible and to overcome difficulties with moving them around, but no cars, it is all being done on public transport, which means I can get my boot in about buses in the East Midlands and long distance buses generally.

Buses?

How does he expect us all to get onto a bus?

There is a perfectly good boat there and we could travel round in that, besides it is croc-shapped: long and thin.

Nell has been in a lot of pain and the kidney stone seems to be on the move; she is down with a migraine today and has stayed in bed.

I'm facing the prospect of the Wheelchair Service taking my wheelchair off me because I have failed to satisfy their drive-by look at the front of my property, this is apparently sufficient for them to demand the return of the indoor/outdoor chair because there is obviously no ramp to the front door.

The ramp is going to be installed at the back and you can't get a wheelchair through the front door anyway. Bloody beaureaucrats! Grin.

Oh sorry, dear civil servants, I'm not allowed to be angry with you, am I, got ticked off by someone who needs to go on an autism awareness course to understand that autistic speech does not equate to aggression.

I am putting a wooden ramp at the front of my property, simply so that I can show the assessor that we have a ramp and I have reconfigured my wheelchair and by taking off the foot pegs and the rollover stops, I can get it in thru the front door.

It will do until we can get a proper ramp built at the back.

There are three annoyed crocodiles who are the drivers of my wheelchair who are a touch disgruntled that the evil wheelchair service are going to steal their pride and joy.

Anyway, tomorrow I shall have to take everything off the powerchair, that belongs to me, and put it onto my manual chair.

Then wait for Clarks to come and take it away.

I have been advised then to make certain that my sojourn without a chair is the most costliest period of time that I can make it for the local NHS.

However, the chair was specially made for me, so I do not see it as being as simple as that.

Oddenstein is thinking - this is a dangerous sign and I have hidden the spades and the dynamite...
