I just wanted to share that I woke up this morning with the news of my great uncle has been rushed to hospital with a twisted bowel and there is nothing they can do, so they are sending him home to be in his comfortable surroundings. It is very sad but it is also such a shame on the timing as he is turning 100 in 20 days time and sadly it is highly unlikely this will happen. We are grateful that he has lived for 99 years which is an incredibly long time, but for some reason I am very sad that he will not reach his 100th birthday and he is so near.
He is a wonderful man and fought in the 2nd world war and severely injured his leg and has always been frail because of this even in his middle and late age, but he has kept going all this time. I just hope and pray that he is not in too much pain.
