I'm Still Here........

... just having another round of hospital visiting at the moment which is taking up most spare time, leaving nothing very much of import to impart! As soon as I can then I shall be back to my usual inane and inefficient blogging with gusto.

Dad was taken in last week with breathing difficulties having contracted a chest infection.  Unfortunately it looks as though the tumour on his lung is growing back and has made part of his lung collaspe.  These are indeed very worrying times.  He was discharged on Friday but was back in view emergency ambulance early yesterday morning as his breathing had deteriorated again.  He has fluid on his lungs and a "touch" of pneumonia - whatever a "touch" of pneumonia may be.  We have heard this morning that his Consultant wishes to transfer him to a different hospital and to blast the cancer with radiotherapy in the hope of stopping the little blighter in its tracks but as you can imagine we're in the lap of the Gods on this one. 

We shall overcome ..... hopefully.

See you soon xx
