    Keeper of the hens

    On Thursday morning I had a phone call at work to tell me that my dad had just had a stroke and was on his way to hospital - not something you want to hear at the best of times...
    We've obviously been worried sick and have spent the following days visiting and giving family lifts where possible - it's been emotional and tiring!
    I'm happy to say he seems to be making a really good recovery - he didn't lose his speech or have a lopsided face but his right arm and leg were immobile. The following day after the stroke he could move his hand, after that he could lift his arm a bit, and recently he's started to be able to move his legs, so it's all really positive and optimistic. He hasn't been able to wiggle his toes but we're hoping that comes back soon too.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know what was going on and why I haven't been around (even less than normal).

    Get well soon Trev!

    Get well soon Neil's dad!!
    Speed of treatment is usually the key with a stroke-good to hear his recovery is going well. Let's hope he is back to full health soon.

    How's Trev doing, Neil?

    He's doing good, thanks!

    He's back home - it was good seeing small improvements every day whilst he was in hospital (could move his arm one day, then lift it above his head the next, then move his leg etc etc).

    He still can't twist his foot around or move his toes, but it might come back - he's walking around with a stick and other than getting tired quickly is pretty much back to his old self (minus the cigs - a huge hurrah for that and I really hope that continues).
