Al Slyvester update !

It is good to get some great news on Christmas Eve. This is from Al Sylvester.

“Season greetings, I want to share with you what’s being going on. Thank you for everyone’s cards n messages, I’ve been overwhelmed to the point that I’ve been unable to reply until now.

I was admitted 4 Dec into ICU for 9 days with bacterial infection in my chest, first 5 days I was critical. Long story short, I’ve been to hell n back in isolation. Still unaware of what bacteria it is as blood tests continue to cultivate. Had biopsies taken from lungs on Tuesday, results now early new year. Was released yesterday after 18 days, with meds n rehab plan taking up to 2 – 3 months.

I chose to keep my illness as quiet as possible, as I was honestly unsure of the outcome, it was that scary. I hope you understand.

The NHS have been outstanding and I owe them everything and dare I say my life.

Hope you all have a wonderful festive season. Sent with my love and hugs and at long last “thumbs up ” xxx”

I am sure that all will wish Al, Clare and family a Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year!

It is pouring here today and I have already been to the shops, what madness about even at 0800, what a waste of food there must be at this time?

Sadly the weather is not looking great

Headlines for the Cairngorms

“A waving front will slowly edge south across Scotland, rain persistent and
often heavy rain across western hills. Will turn to snow across higher
areas across northern Scotland before it clears. Windy along and ahead
of this front with widespread upland gales. Extensive low cloud across
England and Wales with drizzly rain on and off.”

Maybe I will just have to take it easy for a change and get rid of this cough. The snow is mainly gone now but more coming hopefully. A few memories of Canada and lots of snow and ice.

Have a great Christmas.
