Elsewhere


Dad’s in hospital. Old age has really caught up with him in the last couple of years. He seemed brighter today when Mum and I visited but when (hopefully) he returns home realistically his horizons are going to be severely limited.

You’ll understand that, in between work, visits to the hospital, and giving Mum some moral support there’s not a whole lot of time, or inclination, to put anything substantial together here at the moment.

So, something of a random choice, albeit with an appropriate title.

Darce, just wanted to add my good wishes here - my Mum was in and out of hospital like no-one's business last year and the year before and it's horrible I know. Hope your Dad's home and better soon.

A big thankyou to all of you who sent your best wishes. My Dad is still in hospital but his health has improved and hopefully he will be allowed home in the next few days. He will need more care than before, probably more than Mum can manage alone, so we are waiting for a ‘care package’ to be put in place. Certain aspects of the UK Health Service continue to be chronically underfunded it seems – there doesn’t seem to be enough doctors and nurses on the hospital wards for example – however the assistance available to the elderly at home does seem to be good from my experience so far.
