Good Morning. Bacon omelette and Bubble and Squeak. We gassed two Corvettes this morning in choppy seas. Not bad going, one we supplied with bread as they cannot cook in those things. In any case they only carry a third rate cook, who probably couldn't make bread. No lav yet today so I have no pains. Dreading time when I have to go. I had bubble and squeak only for breakfast and rice pudding for dinner. All soft foods for me as I am going to the Seamans Hospital in New York if I get a chance. I f they want to operate I shall say yes.

Well, here I am in bed again and glad to get here for the night. I had a horrible fear this morning , I wanted to go to the lav but new if I did, it would pain me, and believe me it did, and so it has been all day.

Nice day, calm  but heavy swell and cold. I feel fine in the morning till dinner time. when I went to the lav. Then the pain took me again, terribly so. In agony, could not ease it standing. laying or sitting. Glad it did not come on before dinner, for a lovely New Year meal was served from the galley. Twice I went to bed , got up again back to work, could not let my mate do it all . Eventually, after tea was served , I had to go. I just left the galley saying nothing and went to bed but not to ease. I was holding myself  when the steward came in and saw me. He said I am to see a Doc.
