We've taken a dip

Sorry we haven't posted for a few days but things have taken a turn for the worse. Over the last few days we still managed to get out with Len (Del's dad) and we took him back to the Broadstairs folk festival. We managed to have something to eat with Morris dancers in the background and then had a walk round the festival marques with some great music playing all over the town. The following day Len woke up not feeling so good but he never had any pain. He was just so tired and could not stay awake during the day so we never got out for the first time for ages. So we cooked him a nice meal and we had it in the conservatory and he managed to sit up with us and even had a glass of wine. The following morning he dipped again and he couldn't even get out of bed and we ended up calling the doctor. The family got together and we all sat in the bedroom listening to Len's favourite country music and we even had a kebab with him. He just loved listening to us all, smiling with the odd sentence, but couldn't eat anything or drink very well. We were on tender hooks for the rest of the day but he stayed with us all till bed time. We don't think we're going to get much sleep.....

Thank you for all your lovely comments Len loved following this blog and Derwent6, which is why we have involved him so much in it.
