It has been a very hectic week. On top of the usual festive preparation madness, my dad was admitted to hospital on Monday with recurring heart problems, not helped by some sort of stomach bug, so I have been fitting in visits to see him along with everything else.
I’m pleased to report that he is now looking better than he has done for some time – hospital food obviously agrees with him. The pharmacist also reviewed his meds and deleted one that may have been more hinderance than help.
I will be picking him up later once he has been seen by the physio and had his new meds prepared. It is all very reminiscent of last Christmas Eve, the last time he was discharged from hospital after his heart-attack.
All being well I should be back home by tea-time when we can enjoy that ‘phew’ moment when you know that all the shops are shut and that anything we’ve forgotten we will have to do without and I can forget the panic must-buy-something feeling that creeps up on me as Christmas draws nearer.
And so to one and all, can I wish you the very merriest of Christmases!
