And very nice it was too. And so simple to make. We enjoyed ours for dinner last night and I took a flaskful to hospital for my uncle. I hope he ate it as he's not been eating much since his op. He says he just doesn't feel like it but he's a tall, well-built man and will need his energy if he's to cope with his new knee.
Apparently they cut away the femur and tibia (is that the right one?) ones and put in a large stainless steel mechanism. But then they put his own kneecap back in because it was okay. I don't know how that works but it all sounds very gruesome. I was rather proud of myself in the hospital when Uncle was telling me - in great detail - about his op; I didn't even feel queasy, quite an achievement for me.
He's being assessed today. If he passes he'll be allowed home this weekend. One of 'widows' from Nottingham is coming down to look after him.
