It's going to have to go on hold for a while, I'm afraid.
I am currently awaiting an appointment date for my assessment week in 
hospital in Cambridge, UK, when they will decide if I qualify for a 
liver transplant. There is a lot of competition, and if you aren't sick 
enough they don't put you on the list.

After that (I should hear a result within a few weeks of the assessment 
week) I will either be available, and not on the list, or I will be put 
on the waiting list for a new liver. At that point I can't go further 
than something like 3 or 4 hours from Cambridge as the call can come at 
any time of day or night, on any day of the year. So, as far as I 
understand it, holidays are off until your turn comes round, you have 
had the op, survived it, and recovered sufficiently to be able to travel.

This whole process could easily take at least 2 years.

Which is a bummer as it's one of many things I had planned for last year.

Ho hum.
