Jimmy Culshaw
Started by: reddi8 (1107) Report abuse
today I visited Jimmy in the Manchester hospital after his quadruple by pass last monday. He is still under sedation but hopefully if won`t be too long before he springs back to his old self.

Is that Jimmy Culshaw that dresses up like Chubby Brown and used to drive a van. Would be in his early 60s. If so I wish him a speedy recovery not seen him around for a few months.

daft as a brush and didn't know he was in hospital,known him 40 odd years and he might be ready to turn 60 shortly

Been with Jimmys son today at ST. Pats, he was going seeing his dad but told me the operation had been a success but his dad was still poorly. Get well soon Jimmy from your mates at ST. Pats.

I have just spoken to my sister, who is Jimmys partner and she says that he is in a fair bit of discomfort and not out of the woods yet. They will not let him home until he is "something like" When he does come home he will need aftercare for a few weeks. But Jimmy is a strong character and I have no doubt at all that he will be back to his old self soon. May I thank you all on my sisters behalf for all your messages.

good news today he might be out at weekend if carries on improving like he is.

Posted by: bennielechat (5762) Report abuse
Won't have hindered Jimmy's recovery having lost a load of weight over the last few years.

Let's hope he's home weekend, hospital isn't a place to be.

Posted by: reddi8 (1107) Report abuse
He is like a skeleton weighing less than 10st hope this hasn`t made him lose more weight.

Posted by: curly (1064) Report abuse
