Subject: RE: Neville Nichol
I'm at the bottom of the mine for getting Nev's surname wrong. (Two friends both N. N. so expect Norman is wondering whose Christmas Card he has received by mistake!) Ep'th Folk produced a special card for him which Dermot and I delievered today. He laughed his socks off and was quite delighted - until the doctor came to insert a tube and we had to go away for 20 minutes. The main chemo starts tomorrow apparently but he is keeping very positive and has already discovered one nurse who is a folk singer and another is from Ireland so he keeps trying to serenade her with Fields of Athenrye. Two other patients in small ward with him and I get the feeling the three of them are up to as much mischief as their illnesses allow. Watch this space and we'll do our best to keep you in touch. He did ask me to post his thanks for all the best wishes he has received and to say he is quite touched by everyone's thoughts.
