Springing Dad free from Hospital

Wrapped up warmly, Dad heads home!

big sister Iona in check shirt.
YAY!! Dad is home where he belongs. He's still very ill and frail, but he's home where we can fuss over him as much as he needs. The doctors and staff of Morningside MediClinic and the staff of ER24 ambulance service were great!


Thank you one and all for the heartwarming support in so many big and small ways. 


An especially big thanks to my darling hubby who was, as always a steady, solid rock of calm in the centre of the storm. And to my big sister Iona and her husband Ian who flew back here from their UK home.


Today I must spend the day wading my way through 11 days of dirty washing and then my next task is to catch up on blog visits and tweeting!

Fabulous news! I hope he does well. A loved one having a stroke is so scary! My thoughts are with you.

Oh! He does look warm and toasty. I'm so happy for you. It reminds me of when we brought my mom home after she broke her leg. They wanted to keep her longer in rehab but that place was litterly killing her! She needed to get home in familiar surroundings with GOOD food, and sure enough, she regained her appetite by the second day. Your dad is lucky to have people to fuss over him. It's so sad when the elderly don't have anyone. Good to have you back too!
