    I think a little better, Keith did manage a smile for me this morning, but still not returning his signal on the hi ho chorus. Still very poorly. I sat by his bed and he was wearing a royal blue t shirt so I made up a song:
    There'll always be a blue boy
    Wherever blue boys are
    You'll always be my blue boy
    and my bright white star.

    To the obvious tune about england!
    We got him up for lunch and he ate about a quarter of it.
    I know his rate of recovery will be slower than for someone without dementia. I have to hold on to that smile.
    Back on Tuesday guys, and thank you for all your beautiful messages.

    I arrive in time for a seminar on peas pudding and faggots. Now, on this one I am very knowledgeable, having been sent as a child with a basin to collect these for our supper.
    Think of the time before fish and chips guys.
    Keith down and looking lovely in dark and light blue. the bruises on his beautiful face are so heartbreaking. He is still very subdued and does not return our musical signal. But he does tap his feet to the elvis presley CD. So I can only look forward to the musical signal between us next time I come.
    And that will be some time now. Signing off guys, until after my hip operation. Thank you all for being with us and we will be back.
    with love and best, Geraldinexxx

    @kindred - wishing you successful surgery and a perfect recovery. Remember to do all your exercises, but don't overdo!

    I know the timing is not ideal for you, but Keith and yourself can recover and rehabilitate, being well cared for, both at the same time - then there will be no holding the pair of you! Perhaps the Hippy Hippy Shake can be your next big number?

    Sending much love, many hugs and lots of get well thoughts.

    Oh what a lot of crying! First of all, thank you for your wondrous messages of support. I am through the operation and recovering at home. Painful lark though. Anyway, today decided to shake off the vapours and go up to see K. Staff crying, some of the residents in tears, what an astonishing, loving welcome, felt so loved and valued.
    Blue eyed boy subdued, but I think and hope I will be able to reestablish our intimate conversational connection. He did say shhhhhh he had a secret at one point, but God knows what that is!
    Next week have a circus of hospital and outpatient appointments but will get there when I can, but it might be patchy. Anyway, have reestablished myself where I love and obviously and wondrously am so loved.
    More anon, thank you all, thank you. Missed you.
    with love and best, Geraldine, Kindred. xxxxx
