We are home again
Dad is going okay for the moment. He has gone home after having a stent put in the artery located in his heart. Lucky my Dad is fit and healthy. He is 74 this year and never even had hospital records or on any medication. That has changed now and he is on 5 different sorts of pills. I think he is having a few side effects that he is not liking too much.
Dad has been to the local doctor and is having regular check ups by him, I am still worried though because this man doesn't know how to take it easy. What did my parents get up to today? They went to check on some sheep on a farm that they care take. Mum had to drive as my Dad is not allowed to for two weeks. He has kittens when Mum drives because she is not a confident driver.
Hopefully all will be well and I thank everyone of you for your kind words, they are truly appreciated and helpful.
We arranged to stay at the AN institute flats at Glenelg. We get a discounted rate as we are members through the railways. The top picture is of the sunset the first night we were there and the one below is of the waves on the rough seas after the cool change had arrived. That night I thought the roof was going to blow off the place we were staying, it was really strong. Our car was covered in salt carried over from the sea overnight.

The building in which we stayed. A really vintage place. The mantel in our room was pure marble, the ceilings were really high and the windows were huge.
There wasn't much time for doing anything as most of the days were spent at the hospital. I have never climbed so many stairs, so many times in my life. I hope I burnt off some fat around my bum. Of course ds wanted to take the stairs everyday. The car parks were mostly full so this meant lots of walking to and from the hospital. I was glad to get home and sleep in my own bed again.
Thank you all again,
