It never rains but it pours.

I told you a while ago about our son in law having a brain tumour.It is going to be removed on Dec 10th.Our daughter in law has Coeliacs and has not been told she has fibromyalgia.Last Thursday our grandson Angus(13) was rushed into hospital with appendicitis.They kept him waiting 20 hours before they operated.He is still in hospital and has had to start another course of antibiotics which may mean another 5 days in hospital.They live four hours away but we are going tomorrow for the weekend and maybe longer.Our son has to go away on Monday to Singapore for work.What a mess.It should be us oldies that are ill not them.Such a worry.
On a brighter note our granddaughter Ruby is 12 today and we are all going out for a meal tonight.


  1. Oh no, so many worries at once. Really tests your emotions, doesn't it? I hope everything gets better for your family.

  2. It sounds really complicated as well as extremely worrying all round. Hoping things improve quickly

  3. I thought when we got old we would sit in a rocking chair and dream but like you its not reality is it. Every day seems to bring another challenge for us, sometimes just a small thing can throw us off kilter.
    My motto for these time is 'Everything Passes' and it seems to get me through. I think of all the things that have happened in the past and know that one day I will look back and see it was surmountable.
    Enjoy your night out and remember the motto.

  4. Oh dear, your family is certainly being dealt a bad hand at the moment. My sister just recently had to have her appendix out - recovery was fairly swift, if that is reassuring. -Jenn

  5. Everything seems to come at once doesn't it? You must be so worried about all of them. I hope all will be well:)

  6. Sending good wishes for your family as they face these times. Safe journey.

  7. I am sending your entire family positive thoughts for health and healing. Take care of yourself as you are taking care of everyone else.

  8. I am wishing everyone like Meredith, my positive thoughts for health and healing too. Sending you a virtual hug across the miles and strength to keep you going. Big big hugs my friend xxx
