Ron Boardman
« on: October 18, 2010, 10:06:56 AM »
To all who knew and served with Ron Boardman, both in the Manchester Regiment and the after the amalgamation continued with The King's Regiment, I must advise that he was rushed into hospital Friday last with an Aortic Aneurysm, underwent emergency surgery and is now heavily sedated until Tuesday when they will examine him and reconsider his condition, he is currently in Wigan Infirmary and when his condition has improved will be transferred back to the Royal Preston which is just across the road from his home .

Latest news on Ron ,
When his wife June visited him yesterday he was awake, is off the ventilator and breathing on his own again, he has lost two days, he thought it was still Saturday - apparently his first words were 'I could murder a decent cup of tea'. The specialist is very pleased with his progress and all being well he will be transferred back to Preston very soon. So that is excellent news indeed.NFTR.
Cheers,
George.

Morning all.
Ron is up and out of bed, watching TV and moaning about the lack of tea !! He is well on the way to a full recovery from the sound of this and  June is over the moon. I think this could see him back in Preston sooner rather than later.

Hi All, Latest SITREP from Preston,
Ron is likely to be transferred back to The Royal Preston Hospital this weekend, making excellent recovery. So all being well this should be just about the last report on this topic so consider it closed down. So it is Over and Out
Cheers, George.
