Well its been a busy few days and we made our way down to Kent on Wednesday afternoon.. We first checked out Alf (Al's dad) to make sure he was ok from his admission into hospital. He was discharged after being thoroughly checked out.. he seemed fine when we saw him and he was preparing himself for going into hospital again on Thursday night for his zap on a tumour in his liver.
We got up on Thursday after a bad night and did a few jobs round the house for Alf before getting ready for Del's Auntie Betty's funeral. We had to be at Eltham for 12.30pm and there met all the family and friends.. This is the thing with funerals, why are they a time when you meet up with long lost family and friends, surely we have all got it all wrong.. It was not a nice occasion, but it was just lovely to catch up with everyone.
After another bad night we were up early as Del was going back to Derwent6 and Al was visiting her Dad.. We got the train back into London while carers looked after Pam, and Del carried on to Rugby while Al went to see her Dad. Del had just got on the train out of Euston when he received a call from Al saying that Alf's operation had been cancelled due to his heart misfire, and he now has got to have a pacemaker fitted so he can have the operation to his tumour. This will be done in the next week or so.
Ho Hum we will be sitting tight, so Al can get down to support her Dad and it looks like Del will be moving Derwent6....
Al arrived back on Saturday afternoon and the sun has been out. This gave Del time to do the brasses and get Derwent6 shipshape.. We are now chilling and building up energy for the next phase..
