Apparently our neighbour Ken had a rough night on Sunday in the Vega Baja.
The doctors did several blood tests during the night; the first was good but subsequent ones highlighted the problem.
It seems that Ken is suffering from a clogged artery. So today he has been taken to Alicante to have an operation where the surgeon will insert a stent.

The doctor, who has been attending Ken, has assured him that he will feel much better when they have finished with him - Ken has not been well for awhile now and has been a cause of concern for Kay.
Following the operation, it is likely that Ken will remain in hospital for two weeks.
Both brother and sister are pleased with the level of care and attention that Ken is receiving.
