The Last Post

Good morning ladies. You will be pleased to hear that the next post put on this blog will be from Fiona herself.
The next week is going to be a bit hectic so I don't know how much blogging she will do but she is keen to get back in to the swing as soon as she can.
The timetable is:
Today - I should take delivery of an oxgen machine for the house so that she will not need to rely on bottles. Fiona will then come home by ambulance.
Thursday - I am to go to the local chemist for a small oxygen cylinder that she will be able to use in the car.
Friday - I am to take her to the Plastics Clinic in Perth when we expect her heel to be given the all clear since it has healed so well.
Next Tuesday - I'm to take her back to Perth to the Pain Clinic when they will reassess her and arrange for another epidural for her back pain which has worsened because she was on complete bed rest in hospital.
Apart from that it should be fairly quiet.
I would like to thank you all for your good wishes and company during Fiona's absense. Your comments, emails and cards have kept me busy and helped to pass what can be a lonely time. This is the first time Fiona has been in hospital since I retired and the days could have been quite long. I think you are all a marvellous bunch . Your prayers have sustained me. The Lord has a way of looking after us.
Thank you so much. It's now time for me to do a Gordon Brown and resign with dignity.
Love to you all,


  1. William, you have been such a huge support to Fiona and to us by keeping us posted and up-to-date with all her going-ons! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you have given on the blog - it has been hugely appreciated and whilst I hugely look forward to Fiona's return, please know you will be missed! All the best and let's hope the next few days all go according to plan and that Fiona will be home safely today!
    Hugs, Danielle
