Hello ... I'm home .... thank you all for your kind wishes for my son ... he said thanks too ... I consulted a pharmacist and obtained more of the Sudafed tablets for colds and flu that he's been taking, and some Ibuprofen so he can take them alternately to keep his temperature down ... that worked and he was able to get out of bed and have a bath while I was there to make sure he didn't pass out again.  He has a range of crisps, biscuits and cold drinks all reachable from his bed.  Think he'll survive .........    He says that next year he'll have a flu jab.  

Mind you, OH's boss had to go to hospital yesterday as her flu has turned into pneumonia (but she is quite a heavy smoker  )

Just wolfed down a quick mushroom omelette and flopped on the sofa ............. I'd better find out what's been going on here .........

Been out all day ministering to sick son ... think many others are understandably busy ... 

Is this the picture you mean ?

It looks to me like an Achimenes ...  usually grown as a greenhouse or houseplant in the UK.
