My brother lives closer so he's been to see him and says he's fine, but his voice is a bit faint (unsurprisingly). He and Ma were watching tv this afternoon as usual. The carers said they'll get them to bed a bit early so they have a good night's sleep and then they'll be up bright and early for the parade tomorrow. Bless him, he's been at death's door and we've said goodbye several times, spent his 90th birthday in a coma due to mis-prescribed medication , and we've had 'that conversation' with the GP several times when he's had chest infections and pneumonia etc, but he always rallies - GP says he's got the constitution of an ox.
