my uncle

ive made these today, oaty ginger cookies for my uncle roy, these are suitable for diabetics and he loves them LOL.
unfortunately he was admitted to hospital monday evening with severe pain and unable to walk.
hes had a type of leukimea for about 20 years, no treatment for it and it was mild. unfortunately (we think was triggered when my grandma went 3 years ago now) it has progressed and they have said it has now gone into the bones, which is why he is in so much pain :o( , he will be 80 in august and i know hes had a good life, hes a very kind, gentle, caring, loving man, wouldnt hurt a fly infact he nursed my grandma right to the end even with his own ailments.
i saw him yesterday and he seems fine inhimself but in a lot of pain still, he was saying he knew when he was due a painkiller as the pain started increasing again. they are keeping him in for a few days to see how he goes. he wants to still come to the wedding 23rd May so we're hoping and praying he will be able to get back on his feet to do this, as they say where theres a will theres a way, hes eating and drinking fine, so positive thoughts he will make it :o)
i was feeling very sad and low yesterday over it all, and became very giddy almost drunk tired, im feeling better this morning and will be popping over later after ive collected james from school, can only be a quick visit today as james birthday and ive promised to cook a roast beef dinner for him. as he was moved to a ward yesterday evening i can only go during visiting hours 3 - 9 , hence im here and not there.
