Today is the best day , Dad was released from hospital yesterday. Against all odds he is home with us for Christmas. We are so blessed. Don't mind his red non slip socks. I told him they were his Christmas socks. This is all I wanted for Christmas.

To all those families who will have their loved ones in hospital over Christmas and for long periods of time I wish you all best.
I felt a sad hole in my stomach when we left Ray, Scott and David "W" at the hospital still looking after their lovely mum/wife when we took our dad home .
After 4 weeks walking the halls together in a Brisbane hospital we became friends with the "W" family. Two families from the country, both lost souls in the city without our open space, gardens, animals and birds. We somehow attracted when we found my nephew was a friend of one of the "W" boys.
Mrs "W" even travelled back to Toowoomba in the same ambulance as our Dad.
Unfortunately Mrs 'W" can't go home for Christmas. I feel so sad for them and send prayers and hugs.
