Enjoy your weekend

It has been a busy week for me and I meant to write a little note before I left.

My dear Father had to go into hospital on the 10th to have a prostate operation so I went down to keep Mum company and look after her.
It is so sad when your Parents are getting older and not as fit and able as they once were. You might remember, my Mother fell and broke her hip about 2 months ago.

It was lovely to see them both and we went and got Dad from hospital on Friday and he was so happy to be home and with Mum again.

Have a happy weekend.

  1. Hello, Wishing your Dad a speedy recovery. Yes, it is hard getting old. Prostate issues are quite common it seems, in older men. My Uncle on my Dad's side just found our he has Prostate Cancer and my Dad had an operation about 8 years ago. We are hoping my Uncle receives a speedy operation in the New Year.

  2. So sorry to hear your parents are in ill health! Thank heavens you are there to help them!

  3. Hi Carolyn...Thank-you so much for visiting. Oh dear, you have had a busy time of it with your parents. Hopefully now, they will be fine for awhile. I is hard to see them becoming less able to do things on their own...they are fortunate to have a daughter that will help them. I always want to be as independent as I can for as long as I can...but when the time comes that I need more help, I hope my children are as willing and able.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend!
    Hugs, Nancy

  4. Thank you very much Ladies for your very kind words ~ I really appreciate

    Karen I hope that your Uncle will be able to have the operation soon -
    the waiting is not nice.

    Enjoy your weekend.


  5. Warmest wish for Dad to recover soon. The surgery will help your Dad. I have taken care of a few patients with this type of surgery. It saved their life. I know it can be stressful taking care of ill parents. Remember to keep in balance and reduce stress with what you like the most. It sounds like you are a great nurturer: How are you doing?

    Happy Holidays

  6. Thank you for dropping by my blog and the kind words you left for my Dad.

    I am doing fine and it was lovely to be able to stay with my folk for a few days.


  7. Sorry to hear that your Dad is having problems. I wish him a speedy recovery and hope that 2009 will be a good year for you all.
    Very best wishes. Lynda
