Norene doing well

I’m delighted to say that Norene is now doing really well after her heart surgery.

Thank you for all your emails and good wishes – they really have given Norene and me a boost after a very difficult time.

Now we can at last see great improvement and it is just possible that if this continues she may be allowed home early next week. She is now walking unaided and looking better every day. The surgeon and doctors are all pleased with her progress after such a huge operation.

With so many things on my mind over the past few weeks I have been a little tardy emailing the joining information for the forthcoming Photography Workshop in Kirkcudbright on Saturday October 15th. My apologies. If you are booked on the Workshop we will be meeting at the Kirkcudbright Bowling Club at 0930 – please bring your normal camera gear plus tripod and flash if you have them. Of course – you should bring warm clothes suitable for the season.

The window ledge in Norene’s room at the Golden Jubilee Hospital overlooks the River Clyde and is laden with ‘Get Well’ cards and flowers. Among these flowers is a vase full of deep red roses sent from all our friends at the Hotel S’Algar in Menorca where we base our Photography Holidays. What a lovely thought.

Thank you all.

    Hi Norene

    Get well soon , but take it easy in between and tell Philip it’s his turn to do the dishes.

    By the way, are you a student of Latin ?

    All the best Arthur and Denise

  2. Thanks Sue, I’ll certainly pass on your best wishes when I see Norene this afternoon. It will be really great to get her home again, but I’d rather she stayed in this wonderful hospital until she is quite ready.

    I hope you are keeping up with your photography since you came on the photography holiday – it would be lovely to see you again.

    Hello Philip
    We were all out last night, Helen, Catherine, Janet, Andrew and myself in York and were hoping Norene is soon back and feeling better. It cannot have been an easy time for you.
