I went to see Freddie yesterday afternoon. I had a taxi and stayed with him an hour.
I took him a ham and potato salad sandwich which he thoroughly enjoyed. I think the hospital food is quite adequate but it gets bland and pretty tasteless without any salt etc.
His legs are still very swollen and his feet and ankles were icy cold but he doesn't complain. He said he was quite warm.
Now they are going to take his remaining teeth out,  and he doesn't have many left! Apparently this is another precaution in case of bacteria being swallowed and going to the wound. So he will remain where he is until that job is done. At least the date is getting nearer.

They had left him a thick booklet telling what will be happening before, during and after the operation and how to manage when you get home.
He said 'I don't think I'm going to be much use when I get home. That's if  I get home...'
'Of course you are' I told him.'You'll have me to look after you...'

Bless his heart, he takes all this, the daily injections, the drips etc. without a word of complaint.
So we just wait and pray....

Tough days, Dear June. I pray they will soon go away.

If a man is still eating, he isn't about to pass away. Keep eating those sandwiches, Freddie!

All of us pray with you. As I type this I see that others have said the same. I know that some days it can be discouraging. Hang in there and you tell him that people all over the world are praying for him. (even a Hillbilly.)

June, Freddie is very stoic individual, and you are both very brave. It is not an easy time for either of you, remember you are in all our prayers!

Big hugs,


PS Your new artwork is lovely as always!
