Answer to Prayer

I was reluctant to blog the good news until I was certain that Social Work wouldn't pull out at the last minute. Dad has been given a lovely room in Bloomhill Care Home in Cardross, with en suite toilet and a gorgeous view of the River Clyde. He can shoot at ships from his window! (Don't joke Kenny!) He'll have his own TV and if he wants to isolate that's an option. He'll get a dram every night, and a puff of his pipe when he needs it!

It's the end of a long hospital saga, and I know we are extremely lucky to still have him. Blog prayers are powerful things!

How happy he'll be, I know not. Certainly most of the residents are in an advanced state of dementia, but if they treat him as someone who can help out, rather than "as a patient in need of great care", it may well work out.

He moves in tomorrow, Thursday, so we'll need lots of prayers that he'll settle! The blogosphere won't let me down, I know!

It will be a great relief for you to know that he is in good hands.

Great. Just great. Don't expect him to be euphoric - he may be happy at first, and then have a dip - but he will surely settle to a routine and make contact with others around him. That's what I'm praying for - and for a let-up of the pressures on you. (())

Glad there's some sort of resolution on this.

Delighted Kenny. I'm sure there'll be ups and downs but it sounds ideal. Prayers on their way for you and your dad.
