Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 177


“Parents act so strong for us, that we often forget how fragile they are.”


Thanks, Spidey.

Writing this knowing that Pops is back in hospital after another relapse, and possible infection.

I wanted to go and see him yesterday, but he convinced me he was okay, and under the care of my cousin. There would be nowhere to stay, and it would be a long round trip journey to complete in one day, especially in this heat.

I had reassuring calls from him and my cousins. It was decided that I would go next weekend instead.

Then, at 8:45pm last night I get a call…

They’ve had to take him into A & E again, because the pains were getting bad again.

I am grateful he had been there, at their house. Goodness knows what he would have done if he was at home, alone.

He sounded pretty down again when I spoke to him, but he was on an IV drip, the antibiotics getting ready to kick in.

They’ll be keeping him in under observation for at least 24 hours.

I want to go today.

He tells me, no.

He’s in the hospital, I won’t get to be with him much. Everyone else is there.

I know that.

But it’s a double-edged sword…

I worry about him, and need reassurance myself. I know I am getting calls and updates, but it’s not the same.

Equally, if I was to set off early tomorrow to see him, then drive back the same day, he would worry about me. It was on a journey back from home that my awful accident happened…

I know my mum. She is probably beside herself too, but staying as calm as she can. She really can’t get here, being in Finland.

Still in the throes of deciding what to do… Hubby Dearest is ready to take me as and when I want.

Pray for his speedy recovery, Peeps.

Have a peaceful Sunday ❤

    I would go too, whether he is in good hands or not. I would also have the need to assure myself about his condition or simply give him some strength or an uplift with my presence. Although we all don’t even consider something bad to happen of course you would never forgive yourself if you wanted to go but did not do it. So, I am glad to know you are already there, sis. Please give him a super big hug from me.

    Sending huge hugs to you and pops my lovely. It’s hard when they’re far away because everything is out of your control. Trust in the support he is receiving and brighten his day with the sound of your voice when you call. Xxx

    Huge hugs all I can say is go with your heart and your gut. If you want to just go. Parents always think they know best, you must know that. Truth is they don’t always. You know that too. I do hope Pops imoroves soon 💜💜💜
