Well, D2 is still in hospital, poor thing. One of the characteristics of pancreatitis is that fluid fills the abdomen and lungs, so she has been on oxygen all week and won’t be discharged until she can lie flat without it But apart from that she’s making progress, and is back to eating and drinking again, which is good news.
Hub has to go to London today for the thanksgiving service of a relative, so he will go on to visit D2 in hospital, then spend the night at her house and come home tomorrow by train. If she’s discharged tomorrow that will be good, as he can do some food shopping for her etc and make sure she has everything she needs. She doesn’t want me to go up and look after her – she’s been avalanched by local offers of help and has said yes to them all!
Meanwhile back here at the ranch … we decided to get our kitchen worktops changed, having struggled for 2 years with the ones that were here when we came. It’s always a ticklish moment, when the thing you have chosen in the shop arrives in your home – will it be as nice as you hope??? Fortunately yes – I’m delighted with them!
We’ve been blessed with an amazing kitchen fitter, the Hub of the woman who leads our church music group. He turns up on the dot of when he says he will, everything is organised, he has the electrician on tap who came in the morning to disconnect the hob, and again in the evening to reconnect it … it’s all done beautifully, extra little things added which are of practical help, and he’s cleaned up after him like a pro. How good is that!
Now I have to springclean the kitchen … no wonder Hub has taffied off to London … there’s always a downside …
