Sorry its taken me some time to get the next part of Charles Pickering’s story to you , we have had an anxious week ,at lunch time on Monday, we had a phone call from Tina ,the manager of the home that Aunty Kitty(Maurice’s Aunty) is in ,to say that Aunty Kitty is really very ill ,Michael and Jackie(Maurice’s brother and sister in law) were with her ,as was the priest who had come to the home to administer the last rites ,the ambulance was called and she was being to admitted to hospital ,We really didn’t expect her to survive she is very frail ,and the bug she had succumbed too ,was particularly virulent, she was put on a drip ,and given strong antibiotics as well as fluids ,was being barrier nursed and when we went to see her yesterday ,we donned aprons and gloves ,She looked so frail , like a little girl, lying there ,but perked up when she saw us ,still looking very poorly, but still with her sense of humour, Maurice was singing one of her favourites to her,’ I’d like to get you on a slow boat to China ,”I Don’t want to go to China today!”, she said We both decided she isn’t out of the wood yet .But she’s a tough old girl so we continue to pray.
Now its Friday late afternoon, Michael has just rung, to say tests have been done and Aunty Kitty is now free of the bug, and is going back to the care home this evening, I suppose they need the beds! ! ! I won’t forget I owe you the second part of Life on Britannia..
