    Well,we finally got there after the home got the all clear.Tbh I had given up and I was feeling extremely tearful and everything was too much.
    It was like moving house .What with the gutter frame ,meds,repose etc.Good job the wheelchair taxi is big.
    Arrived there and dad appeared in good spirits but I’m never sure as he goes into hosting mode when other people are around.

    They assisted him into the dining room where he had a drink whilst I put his stuff in his room.
    He has a big room en-suite which was one of the issues making him decide .Plus it looks over Godrevy lighthouse and the sea.Which he is looking forward to seeing whilst standing on his Sara Steady or using his gutter frame.
    I’m hoping all goes well..14 days to chill..
    What a relief!
