114 - "Hiya"

Took wee Sadie in to visit Grandad today, I am struggling to get folk to watch the wee ones everyday - with Pug being full on at uni for another few weeks, so I took madam with me. She was wary of Grandad to start with, but as the time went on she settled.

Big news is dad walked a bit in the gym this am with 2 physios helping him, they are so happy with his progress they let us take him in a wheelchair downstairs, we only lasted a few minutes outside as he was freezing - he looked so confused.
When we came back in we took him to WHSmith to browse the newspapers - he does seem to be reading? Anyways, Mini Haha picked up a magazine to show Grandad, my mum lifted her up to him on his good side and he said "Hiya" twice, clear as a bell, still in shock...... no french accent, no slurring just said it like nothing had happened - madness. He was so cute with her, smiling and making funny faces to her. Both Sadie and Mabel are great for his spirit.

He is just so lovely, when they were helping him into the wheelchair he was standing up, he reached out to my mum - they had a cuddle, such a  beautiful moment that the charge nurse started crying, we all did!!!
He also watched a wee bit snooker in the day room and had a visit from his pal Bill, a busy day.

The last 8 days have been such a roller coaster of emotion, highs and serious lows. It is looking more positive for Dad, I'm enjoying his amazing progress yet I'm still terrified to let go and relax, such a long way to go.

Looks like everyones positive thoughts and prayers are paying off - thank you to everyone for all the kind words, one day I will be able to show him them and he will know how loved he is.
