Wednesday Update

A big thank you to all of you who have been in touch since Sunday.


For those of you who haven't seen my FB status...David had a heart attack on Sunday and has been in the JR Hospital in Oxford.


It was sudden and frightening but we were lucky that help arrived within 5 - 10 minutes of me making the emergency call. We didn't realise what it was (he had no pain) but knew it was serious. They call it a "silent" heart attack.


The blocked artery has been cleared and a stent inserted. He's looking so much better, albeit very weak and is due home today. He'll be off work for about a month and can't drive for a week at least.


Obviously some lifestyle changes are imminent too!


The boy came home yesterday to help out for a few days. It's lovely to see him just wish it was a nicer reason for his visit.


Max has been very subdued and bewildered at being left alone for longer periods than normal.


I'll keep you all updated as and when we have more news.

Oh my!! As if you hadn't got enough going on between you as it is. But life works in mysterious ways to get us where we need to be, maybe this forced time together will give you chance to reconcile your future plans.
Wishing you love and wisdom :D XXX
