I forgot to mention that yesterday we had the most amazing storm.We got used to spectacular tropical storms in Florida, every afternoon about four o’clock in fact.Yesterday was at midday and was like a total eclipse. You can imagine the view from the top floor with successive lightning bolts and deafening thunder.One of the nurses said it should only last an half hour and smiled cheerily so we “ignored” it
However at 6-30 this morning at the house we had another that rattled crockery and shook pictures on the walls. The electrics went down and we hunted round with torches on mobile phones for candles.
We are told we wont miss the tornado warning, it’s very loud like the fire warning in France or an air raid siren.We all then head for the cellar and wait for the Yellow Brick Road.I will dream tonight of Dr Park in the Emerald City.
Claire went off for Tals 9-00 am physio which had to be postponed as the physio had called in sick.An hour later Tal was raring to go and amazed everyone by crawling without hesitation.
The problem is slowing him down in case he falls or overdoes it.The staff think he is going for the record on the quickest recovery after surgery.
He has had two sessions today and two rides around in his chair.He got the chance to visit the roof garden.
Of course it had to be back to the shop as Grandad Lee had sent money to reward all his hard work so he could get ANOTHER car.At this rate we will need ANOTHER suitcase !
Gethin has been a really good boy today. We had lunch out together and he made a new friend at the park.He is coping well with the heat,eating everything and his language skills are improving daily.We let him have a good run round in the park.
Richard brought Jon back tonight so Claire has the last night shift in the hospital.We look forward to getting the family back together tomorrow.
