I just thought i would share some pics Rob from alba taxidermy sent through last night.
The reason for the gloom - I came home from a days shooting last thursday feeling a bit average having had a cough for a week and collapsed on the kitchen floor. I went to bed thinking i had flu and the first doctor, annoyed at being called out said i had flu - almost told me to man up..... I went for a second opinion the next day as coughing up frothy bloody mucus is what i expect a deer to do once i have put a bullet through it's lungs.
After hospitalisation, x rays and tests it turns out i had pneumonia. Add to that my grandmother dying I was pretty miserable!
Anyway, Rob has nearly finished the royal from Sept and it cheered me up so here is a pic.
Not allowed out stalking for a bit now but a warning to anyone worried please get checked out, if i had left this another day or so the scarring on my lungs would be a lot more severe.
Happy Christmas all
