Firstly, apologies for the lack of recent updates. Dad was bought home by ambulance on Wednesday evening. He is in a bad way and requires oxygen and his nebuliser and a suitcase load of medication to help him through each day and night. He’s glad to be home, but things are hard going for him healthwise. I showed him some of your comments on my mobile phone and they cheered him up, so thank you all so very much for your kind words and prayerful support. It is, as always, so very much appreciated. Special thanks go to:

I join in all the masses, rosaries and prayers being offered for your Dad as well as you and your Mother. This must be a terribly frightening time for all of you! What you speak of is so serious. Your dear mother is lucky to have you by her side to help her through. We will all continue to hold all of you in prayer.

Wow, that is a long time to have clots in the lungs and not even know. He is lucky that nothing bad happened to him in all that time! Prayers will continue!

I have been following your dad’s progress on Facebook. Be assured of my prayers for you all. I will be at vespers tonight for the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, and will especially remember your dad. Blessings!

I am worried. Can you let us know that you are all hopefully ok? I pray that God stays by your side, holding you up, if needed. I know that none of this is easy
I had my rheumatologist appointment yesterday. Saw a nice consultant who sent me off to have more blood tests. Didn’t get a diagnosis per se, but fibro and CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) were mentioned. He says that he wants to rule out other possiblities though, hence the 7 vials of blood they took from me yesterday!
The Pope’s visit. I haven’t been participating as i would have liked. The closest i’ve got to doing so is watching the Holy Father meeting the Queen, on the tv screen in the rheumatologists waiting area yesterday…..2 couples kicked off about the ‘bloody disgraceful financial cost’ of the Pope’s visit but to be honest, though i was tempted to speak out, i was trying to compose my thoughts for my imminent appointment and was finding it difficult enough to concentrate my thoughts as it was..besides which, debating is too emotionally draining for me right now.
So there you go.
I suck at being healthy AND i suck at being Catholic.
p.s. still no contact with Blunderboy.
