Thanks @jugglingmun. Brother is back in hospital with sepsis (again!) after having just got out after seven weeks last Wednesday. Hopefully they can finally get it sorted and he can start to properly recover. He's lost over 20 kilos. Fortunately he was rather overweight to begin with. My husband, who only weighs 60 kilos, would be dead by now. I'm waiting for the latest update from my sister-in-law. However I have had some very good news today. The insurance company has paid up for the holiday I had to cancel for mum sister-in-law and me when mum went into the home and my sister-in-law couldn't go because of my brother. Husband and I have won a night in a nice B&B tomorrow, in one of our favourite places, so I think prosecco will be drunk!
