Glad to hear you're feeling better, Val. :thumbs_up:

My SO, Siobain - who does come onto this forum from time to time under her name - has a very ill dad in ICU in Bloemfontein. He has had pneumonia and is in respiratory and renal failure. We doubt he will see the week out. Always so difficult when having to face the death of a parent - I think that must be one of the worst challenges for most of us. He has regained consciousness from time to time, but the outlook is bleak. He is 81 years old.

OWN,

Thank you for the support you have given me and I will keep you and Siobain in my thoughts at such a sad time.

Having lost my father, it is indeed one of the worst things you can go through.

Please everyone.

Can you all redouble your efforts and prayers for me and my mother. We are meeting with doctors tomorrow and she may require another operation to reconnect her intestines, as she has not settled after the operation.

Tremendous worry.

Lots of love to you all and OWN and Siobain, still thinking of you both and Siobhan's father.
