The Thrill of The Grill .... Sketch Saturday Challenge #177

Ok, so I'm a little late this week with my post and my card ... but I've had the week from hell >:) ... This post is for my eldest sister who rather than ring Mum for information about Dad is choosing to use either Facebook or my blog ... but then she always has been a selfish 
Dad had been closely monitored by the GP last week with his chest infection and of course his impending last chemo session ... we were having visits every couple of days from him to check Dad's status.   On Wednesday morning Mum said that Dad felt :-& and was having trouble getting his breath, so i advised she :)] the GP.  He came out and said he was admitting him to hospital based on how he was that day and also his blood results from Tuesday.  He was admitted to hospital with Hypercalcemia (high calcium levels) and Sepsis :-S ... he was given Gelofusine to raise his blood pressure and counteract the shock and then saline and 2 units of blood.  They got him sorted with cocktails of painkillers, anti-biotics and vitamin supplements and allowed him home with a fab care package on Friday evening :D

So, this morning has been a productive one for me ... Sunday lunch is cooking, roast chicken just out of the slow cooker, roasters and stuffing balls in the oven, along with a weetabix cake and a rice pudding (made especially for Dad using full fat milk and glucose).  I have 2 apple and butterscotch cakes cooling on the side \:D/ ... i've been a busy bee but i'm a happy bunny!  I've even managed to finish the card below that's been sat on my table for the past week!
