The tough times continue

My mother had another stint in hospital following a stroke which has paralysed her left side.
She can no longer speak, and is being fed hourly through a tube in her nose.
Her periods of wakefulness are mercifully brief.
My father is distressed and heart broken, and not well at all. My Chacha has come to be with him in this difficult hour.

I used the word 'intertwined' for their lives here: some more cheerful memories of my folks.

Tough times. Really nothing I have to say. Writing this comment as a digital substitute to a hand on your shoulder, and a gentle squeeze to remind you that you are in our thoughts, and our prayers.

I haven't been around for a while, and just wanted to come back here and say: Hang in there. Big hug! Do wish both your parents all the every best.
