Home for Christmas

David has escaped from hospital tonight. We don't know how long he will be home but we are happy that he will sit in his usual place at the table on Christmas day.
I wish you, all my bloggy friends, a Very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year and thank you for sticking with me despite my infrequent post and for your good wishes for David.

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
