Roger,

Bronchitis is a tough one, seems only time and / or a warm climate helps, am very glad to hear she is getting close medical attention, my sincere hopes that both of you are the most comfortable and as quickly as possible on the mend. Forget the vin rouge, go for he d'Yquem, it will soothe, ;-)

Regards, John

Thanks everyone. Your kind thoughts brought tears to my eyes and will to hers to when she reads them all in a few days' time.

Aditi and I have just come back from seeing her. She's looking very much better but she's still on oxygen and drips and cheerful stuff like that. The Easter dinner (cotes de veau) goes in the freezer until she's out of hospital!

It has been much easier with the help of our wonderful 'adopted daughter' Aditi -- who as I write this is on the telephone to her father (one of my oldest friends) being her incredibly sweet self with him too.

Tashi delek,

Roger

Roger, you both will be in my prayers this weekend.

(Just saw your recent post. I'm sure the holiday dinner will taste better as a welcome home dinner).

It sounds as if you have a lovely little family; best wishes for the holiday. Take care of yourself and Aditi, as well.


Cheers,

Hi Roger,
First, best wishes from our household to Frances & you. Our sympathies as current flu sufferers, we are in that final period where it seems like it is trying to return. It has been a very unpleasant 2+ weeks.
I was going to reply to your "Who cares?" thread to say that my wife, Sharon, went through something that sounded like Frances' pseudo...., Sharon's was named Polymyalgia rheumatica (a self limiting syndrome) from 1990 to 1994, when we lived in Marin and it changed into something else and seemed to go away when we retired to the heat of San Antonio in 1998.
So, take care, we care.
Bob

Hi Roger,

All the best to Francis as she recovers, and to you as well. Even when we give selflessly, caregiving is never entirely easy.

First of all apologies for coming so late to this thread Roger. I, of course, wish Frances a speedy recovery. My father sufferd bronchial problems in the past so I know how bad it can be. All the best to you both.
