As some of you may know, my father was ill before Christmas following a massive stroke. Thanks to all the help from the excellent staff the Stroke Unit at Hope Hospital in Salford, Manchester he made a fantastic recovery. All your well wishes were passed on too and I like to think that they played their part, thanks!!
His health has improved massively and he’s since passed a driving exam, allowing him back behind the wheel. He also goes on a Norwegian Cruise next month, with my mum of course!
I wrote this for him after I had to return home from Manchester. Some have read it before but it is Father’s Day!
For My Father
I needed to be with you. The family reassured me but I felt useless being so far away. I made the journey. Luckily the snow had begun to melt, making the drive less dangerous.
During the drive I thought about the great times we’d had together. I remembered I still have the gold chain you bought me for my twenty-first birthday.
Just to see you this weekend made me feel proud to be your son. I know you will be better soon, you are a fighter, and I’m looking forward to walking with you in the Spring.
I love you!
My dream came true. I will walk with him in just a few short weeks!
