Hiya Everyone,
Just thought I would bring you all up to speed and to apologise for not doing so sooner. I went into heart failure last Sunday Morning But due to me not wanting to go into hospital ( yea stupid i know ) it was up to Kay to sort me out till my GP got to me . Anyway she juggled my drugs about and my GP changed someand added some and I'm still here . I have to sleep in my own hospital bed, have my bloods taken everyday but its worth it. I dont think we will be attending the Northern Re union this year but we are booked in for Blackpool next year so that is our aim......get me fit and well enough for that.Take care and God Bless..........Hussar

Billy,

Your wellbeing is higher priority than a reunion. Look after yourself, do as you are told, and get well so Kay can have a rest, and some more good times with you. There will be plenty more reunions, there's only one YOU. I'm sure we're all wishing you the best and want to see you make Blackpool.
Regards

Cheers for that Brian and Duncan,
I'm progressing nicely , you know Kay Brian, She likes to sit in the hotel window with a blanket round her legs with a G & T in her hand watching the trams :lol: :lol: :lol: . I'm taking it VERY slowly every day but getting there and thats the main thing.I haven't felt like using the laptop but starting to get there , anyway take care and hopefully see you both soon.

Hello
Just to let you all Know That Bill is not too clever I had a phone call from Kay to say he had collapsed yesterday and is now bed bound, his oxygen levels are dropping as well as his potassium levels which are making him very unwell and the Doctors and consultants are trying to figure out which is the best medicine and tablets to give him so as to get him back up and on his feet, Isabel and myself went up on Monday to see Bill and Kay and he was in great spirits and had a good laugh and a joke [thanks Kay] and as you know from Bill him self he was not too clever the week before and as Kay said it's one step forward and six back, they are hoping he will be a lot better by the weekend once they get his medicine sorted out and as soon as he is up and about he will give you all an update him self.
Along with my self and Isabel I am sure you all wish Bill a speedy recovery so get well soon Bill all the best and love to Kay.
Alan and Isabel.
