As some of you will know, my Dad is currently in hospital awaiting a triple heart bypass. His operation had been scheduled for last Friday but had to be cancelled at the last minute because of staff sickness in the recovery ward. It has now been rescheduled for Tuesday afternoon at 2pm and we're praying that it will go ahead and go well.
In the meantime, we are making sure that Mum gets out and about while Dad is in hospital. On Friday we had a family lunch at a favourite restuarant in town. My brother Iain had the day off work and he and his family joined me and my children (Jon was at work) and Mum. This was when Dad was supposed to be in theatre but while we were at the restaurant I got the call from Dad telling me it had been cancelled. Lunch was great regardless and we now have the excuse of going out again on Tuesday (haha!!).
Today my sister Kay, neice Theresa, Theresa's son Tyler and I met up with Mum at Cafe Nero's for a coffee and a chat. Claire joined us a bit later. It was lovely to see Kay and Theresa again as they'd been in Scotland for Christmas and had been sick since they got back. Fortunately they are feeling much better and getting out and about again. I, naturally, took my camera with me and managed to get a few shots of Tyler. He's such a little cutie and is growing so quickly - I can't believe he'll be a year old on the 21st of this month, the time seems to have flown! Anyway, I'll end with this photo of Tyler and hope to update again soon.
