Gavin: Locums motives II

I awoke this morning to see the Locum on call was the one that had put the fear of god into me a few weeks ago. He worried me so much that although Sonny has some funny marks on his legs, I certainly wasn't telling this doctor about them in case he decided on immediate amputation. However, he came in to examine Sonny and looked genuinely pleased with his progress, saying lots of great things like 'I can't believe he looks so well' and 'it just shows you that anything can happen'. He finished off by saying to Sonny 'Hodgkins is easier to treat and if you keep getting fitter that is the best medicine', which is a bit better than his last parting shot (click here to read). I wanted to be smug and wear a 'I-told-you-so-face', but instead was ridiculously pleased, relieved and grateful for his positive words.

I now have to go and prepare Sonny's lunch of mini scotch eggs, a bread stick, homous, cheese straws and some Jelly beans. A sort of Tesco Value tapas really.
