Today was a bit of a mixed bag, I got a phone call from my niece to say that Mum was not good, nobody could rouse her and the hospital advised to expect the worst, so off to the hospital I went. The whole family was there, the first time all of my siblings had been in the one place at the same time in nearly 10 years, if Mum had woken up that shock would have killed her.
Anyway none of us could get any reaction, that is until her sister walked in, we had been there for hours and nothing, and then in walks Jacqui and Mum wakes up and slowly seems to rally and chat, albeit an obvious strain on her, so I am still not really hopeful, but she will go in her own time, no-one knows when that will be but we will go back to the hospital tomorrow.
Last night was a good night, Brian and I had dinner with a couple of mates I went to school with and their wives, it was great catching up after all these years. Apart from the obvious physical changes things were pretty much as they had been all those years ago.
Another catch up with old friends tonight, who knows however what the rest of the day will bring.
