"one year on"

About: Glenfield Hospital

I had a triple heart by pass operation at Glenfield 3rd august 2015 just over a month after i had a heart attack.I was put at ease when i visited the hospital for my pre op tests as every detail of my stay was discussed and i was told what to expect.The care i was given could not have been better and i was soon going for a walk around the corridors.It is now a year since my op and to celebrate i climbed Mt Snowdon .i arrived at the peak at 13,00 August 3rd 2016,a year to the minute since i was being operated on.I took all the advice i was given and did as i was told and have a full and active life.I would like to thank The consultant and the team for all they did for me and of course a massive thank you to the nursing staff.On top of the mountain in the fog and the rain i thought of you all.Thank you
