Oh what a week

Hi Everyone, Well what a week, I have my Parents visiting and we are travelling around the UK visiting Family, unfortunately 4 days into this holiday my Father had a stroke, which gave my Mother and I a big fright, it was not immediately evident that he was having a stroke, all these TV adverts dont really give you  all the help as his face was not that effected. The stroke affected the speech part of his brain and the right side of his body. Being in a strange place I have to praise the holiday cottage that I am staying in ( It takes up to 2 dogs) had a file with all the important information that you would need including the full address of the place. I phone 999 and got such good response and the Ambulance folk were excellent. The Dorsett County Hospital were also exellent and with them having to use travel insurance as they do not live here, that went through without any problem. Thankfully he is a very determined person, he could not talk at all on Monday night when it happened and by the next day was able to talk some, his right hand and leg are not completely 100%, his writing is not too good and he cant sign his signature, which seems to irritate him and he is always trying to sign....Thankfully he is now out of hospital, but our holiday is really not going to be as we want, we are off again on our travels tomorrow, and as I am the only one driving will have to consider stopping to make sure he gets a bit of a rest from the car and my little dogs have a walk. We are constantly on edge now looking for anything that may go wrong, also he is not allowed to stress etc so my Mother is fussing all the time. It will be nice to get back to my own place and be on my own with my craft and my life. I was unable to bring craft with me due to space limits.

So I will not be submitting much for the next week or so.

I hope you all had a good day today watching Kate and Will marry, weren't they sweet
