It's been a roller coaster of a month on the domestic front. One person is out of hospital, just, now able to take medication by mouth thus allowing things to calm down, and then there'll be medical follow up in the near future.

Last night we received what was either a hello keeping in contact, phone call, or a farewell chat. It reminded me of another relative who had done the same thing, many years ago.

Following a period of, could they, can't they, will they, won't they,  the outcome of medical deliberations and risk assessment, came through to us at lunch time today. The patient, away from home a month this week, and already living with one life-threatening condition, was recovering from the operation for a second major problem that had developed. Today, visitors, apart from one, will be kept away.

The medical team decided they would try to give this patient an extended and better lease of life. Their trust in their skills and the faith in the patient's personal strength appear to have been vindicated.
