NEWS BULLETIN AGAIN

I omitted to mention the most serious news of all. On Saturday, SuperSpouse's elderly aunt was admitted to hospital, and it was confirmed last night that tests show she had suffered a heart-attack. She's 90, has advanced Alzheimer's, and if she knows she's in hospital, then that's as much as she does know. She temporarily lost her speech, but has regained it - to the extent that she can manage a "yes" or "no", but nothing more. In other words, she's really not with it at all. It remains to be seen what will happen next - up until now, she has been in a care home. Now she'll need nursing care - if she survives.

So sorry to hear about Aunt M! It's so hard to see an elderly relative decline in heath. You know, though, she's a tough cookie!

And through all of this you had the time to think about where I was...wow, you're a dear!
