Further update (moan)

Hello dear bloggy friends
I seem to do little but quick catch ups with you at present.
I really am spending my time toing and froing from the Royal Derby with David. He was in hospital last time I wrote, came out a few days later only to be blue-lighted back in the following week with a pretty dramatic bleed, in for 10 days home for 6 and then last sunday I found him lying on the ground on his way to the outside loo (goodness knows how long he had been there, I had been blithely mucking out hens and picking spinach) So another 999 call and now he looks to be in some time as they believe he has endocarditis. The poor bloke is pretty fed up with himself. The girls and I are trying to ensure that he doesn't just have to listen to just .us and have set up a sort of rota that our friends and relatives can put themselves in a slot to visit him, to ring the changes. He is to have some procedure around his heart next wednesday, when they will know if he is responding to the antibiotics that he is being fed IV.  From this he will know if he can come home for Christmas day with the family and if he is hospital for 6 weeks or allowed home with district nurse support.
I have been doing other things honest! But Christmas is coming together pretty slowly. My Christmas cards haven't  been written (only just bought!) so I guess I have missed the overseas ones!. I have made a note of all the interesting things I HAVE been doing in a draft post and will regale you with them at a later date.
Now that I am at my computer I will finish the Civic Society's Winter newsletter as it has to be printed and posted by Monday
So again in haste. Thank you for bearing with me
Love
Gillx

    1. As we are all family or friends so close they are like family on Christmas day > i don't have to impress, but I would rather like to have all the presents bought/made and the bedrooms cleared!

  5. So sorry to hear how things are going with David, hope he'll be out for Christmas, they do try to chuck out as many people as possible.
    I shouldn't worry about getting things done - surely people will understand,
    Take Care

    1. You are right, they do try to get rid of as many as possible and I am hopeful he will actually be out for good if his tests go well. They KNOW my house is a tip anyway I'm more worried about the presents/cards I haven't got yet!

  8. Thanks Weave, yes my gang are very supportive and are ensuring he gets lots of visitors. With regards to Christmas day itself it is a combined effort by all the family so that should be good. I must admit that its the thinking that is tiring!
