up date on father

i went this morning after my brother visited yesterday, he is a lot better even though he still has a stiff neck. He can lift it of his chest now and is more mobile. He was still in his pj and hadnt had breakfast (boiled egg) yet and it was 11-30 am. His bath room is down stairs and he went in to wash and i started on the kitchen which he said was disgusting. Nobody had touched it since friday, thought sister or brother would have done it sat or sun but no. there was dinner plates and glasses, and then just a general clean up round work surfaces. Then we had cup of tea and he had his pain killers which he hadnt taken because he thought they would interfer with his other medicene. So i reassured him that they didnt.. We had a laugh and enjoyed our cup of tea. I have two sisters one 5yrs older and one 10yrs younger, one brother 12yrs younger so i'm 64 this year and feel for him as i'm the one that takes after him with the different pains, i have PsA and i think its him i got it from. everything i have comes from him> i have a lazy eye and its the left one the same as him. So i think i understand him better.

I am giving him a bit of space and not going till Thursday on the understanding that if he needs me he will ring.

So thanks for all your replies and i will keep you informed as to how he gets on.

Sending you all hugs and best wishes
