Hi Kirst, you must have been so frightened for your dad. I'm glad it didn't turn out to be as serious as you feared. It's great news that you've got a place for him at the home you want.

Please don't bottle things up, we like to hear what's going on with the TP 'family', good news or bad. We'll always try to support you.

I hope all goes well for you on Friday.
