A Tough Week


It's been something of a tough week for the Auld Reekie Ranter. Mrs Smith took unwell on Tuesday and had to be admitted to hospital. Initially it was believed she had a heart attack but after numerous scans and tests the docs say she has angina. She's now recuperating at home (there's a sinkful of dirty dishes, three days of dirty washing and the place could do with a hoover...)

It has been a scare for us all and it was sad that grand-daughter Ava didn't have much of a first birthday last Wednesday. We'll hopefully be making up for this on Sunday - health permitting. It's hard to believe a year has passed since she came into my life. Happy Birthday Ava.

Sometimes you realise what is really important in life.

Lovely kid! A bit thoughtfulness of the wife to give worry when a game was on mind.
Glad she is home OK. Thinking of you.

Thanks, Mr H. Aye, it was a bit like 1986 when she was due to give birth on the day of the Aberdeen-Hearts cup final. With some people it's just me, me, me...

Sounds like a really tough week Mike!
And I hope Mrs Smith will soon be 100% as those dirty dishes, washing and hoovering sure need attending to.
I'll be sending tons of love and light to make sure it is a lot brighter in your world.
Big heart hugs

So you'll be looking after Mrs Smith then Mike ;-)

Dishes to be done, hoovering to be done and washing... ;-)

Hi Mike, So sorry Mrs. Smith is going through a hard time but I'm glad you know what it is and can be proactive with it now that she's home. I hope it's an easy and complete recover.

I had to Google angina to see what it was. I read that the treatment is a full-time housekeeper ;-)

As for Little Miss Ava, I'm sure she'll understand and love her b-day attention whenever it happens.

Cheers, jj

Sorry to hear about Mrs Smith Mike. Must be tough for the family at the moment and I wish her well in her recovery.
