Oh Dear! what a bloomin day. My poor Dad.

The day started well and I got to work without any problems. There was no milk so no morning cuppa.

Then my mobile rang & it was a call from my husband (Chris) to tell me my Dad had fallen and they had to call for an ambulance. I was so wound up I actually got to the hospital before the Ambulance and as Mam is disabled she was left at home worrying.

The upshot of all of this is my poor Dad has broken his hip and is expected to go to theatre this evening. I have to try to get to work tomorrow so Natalie (daughter) is going to stay overnight at my Mams to look after her but she also has to leave early in the morning to go to college, so, not sure about tomorrow.

I left the hospital around 3 ish and i have to say my Dad is looking very poorly. We have to ring before visiting tonight as he may not be up to visitors.
Below is a Picture of me and my Dad last year at Botton Village.

Jak, I am so sorry to hear that your dad has broken his hip, I hope that your mum is okay too,a very hard time for her to be left at home while your dad is in hospital, it must be such a worry for the family. As I have elderly parents I know how you are feeling just now. I worry all the time about my parents.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

Hugs
