He's coming home

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Well my Spark family thanks to all your good thoughts and loving prayers FIL is coming home sometime this week.
We did think, it it was still on offer, he'd be transferred to Teddington Hospital for further physio rehabilitation but it was withdrawn as he's not considered disabled.
All tests have proved nothing sinister was going on, just old age taking it's toll.
Today, hopefully, I'll collect a wheelchair from the local hospice where I'm a volunteer, in case we need it to get him from the car into the house- so that's organized.
Also organized is his bed downstairs opposite the bathroom and a chair at a more appropriate height for him to get out off and be comfortable in.
We're told he'll get a Carer in the morning to help with getting him out of bed and back in at night so MIL will not have to strain and get some much needed help.
So we're all set.....just need to know which day this week.
I am really hoping it's Friday as I get some shopping 2 moro and last minute odd jobs done here and help DH bring him home.
But I also have a hospital appt of my own- botox injections for my dystonia on Friday and I dare not miss out this 3 monthly injection or my eyes will blink uncontrollably for the next 3 months.....not a good look and damn tiresome.
So time is going to be tight. We'll cope. If need be DH and MIL will have to collect FIL alone while I make my way on the Tube into London on my Jack Jones (Own).

With all this going on I'm still on track; eating healthy, drinking loads of water and getting both cardio and strength training in..........but it's going to be a push 2moro and Friday emoticon

I managed 10 k on my bike this morning in 32 mins..........was aiming for 30- still not bad and I'll do my challenges 2nite along with my core workout, after our evening meal as when we get back from the hospital I have more "weed whacking" ( we call it strimming in the UK) down the side path by our house emoticon....racking up a few more cardio mins emoticon

Okay gotta go and organize stuff, thanks for reading and thanks again for all your support during this mini family crisis........I couldn't have made it through with my sanity intact without ALL of you emoticon emoticon

three old Grannies

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Three old Grannies were sitting outside a nursing home one day and......
When an old Grandpa walked by.

And one of the old Grandmas yelled out saying, "We bet we can tell exactly how old you are ."

The old man said, "There is no way you can guess it, you old fools."

One of the old Grandmas said, "Sure we can!

Just drop your pants and under shorts and we can tell your exact age."

Embarrassed just a little, but anxious to prove they couldn't do it, he dropped his drawers.

The Grandmas asked him to first turn around a couple of times and to jump up and down several times. Then they all piped up and said,

"You're 87 years old!"

Standing with his pants down around his ankles, the old gent asked, "How in the world did you guess?"

Slapping their knees and grinning from ear to ear, the three old ladies happily yelled in unison...

"We were at your birthday party yesterday!!"

Older men are just more helpful

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Two men, one old and one young, are pushing their carts around Homebase Hardware store when they collide.

The older man says to the young guy, 'Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn't paying attention to where I was going.'

The young guy says, 'That's OK. It's a coincidence. I'm looking for my wife, too. I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate.'

The old bloke says, 'Well, maybe we can help each other. What does your wife look like?'

The young guy says, 'Well, she is 24 years old, tall, with blonde hair, big blue eyes, long legs, big boobs, and she's wearing tight white shorts, a halter top and no bra. 'What does your wife look like?'

The old bloke says...... 'Doesn't matter --- let's look for yours.'

MP Heaven & Hell

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

While walking down the street one day a "Member of Parliament" is tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

'Welcome to heaven,' says St. Peter. 'Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you.'

'No problem, just let me in,' says the man.

'Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.'

'Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,' says the MP.

'I'm sorry, but we have our rules.'

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly & nice guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises....

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

'Now it's time to visit heaven.'

So, 24 hours pass with the MP joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

'Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.'

The MP reflects for a minute, then he answers: 'Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.'

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and rubbish.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. 'I don't understand,' stammers the MP. 'Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable.

What happened?'

The devil looks at him, smiles and says, 'Yesterday we were campaigning.. ...
