158-60 scones and tea
Been an eventful few days for dad. Yesterday he made his 1st cup of tea, the OT laid everything out and he just walked in and made it no bother, he is a bit of a tea jenny so it is no surprise. Great progress though, hopefully it means he can get a cuppa when he gets up in the am. OT said it was too easy they will have to try something harder next time!
Today he went out with mum and his 2 mates, the 2 couples have been pals forever and had just returned from a holiday in Spain when dad had his stroke. How lovely to hear mum telling me all about their wee outing,they went to the Inn at Lathones, and had tea and scones. Dad spread his own butter and jam on his scone ate them both and drank his tea. The main concern about dad leaving the hospital is whether he would cope on return, he was fine with it - mum had drawn a wee sketch before they left explaining the day, he clearly understood it, because as soon as his mates turned up he got up ready to go.
Things are looking up! looking forward to a nice trip to loch levens larder for cakes, tea and a wee walk...happy day Dad, home soon xxx
