When I left work yesterday I assumed that is where I would be today.
However, today I’ve flown on the local commuter plane, another plane to Brisbane, then four and half hours in a hire car and am now in a small Queensland country town. I’ve seen jacarandas, banana trees, road trains, bottle trees, high set timber houses and experienced 35 degree heat. No photos, as I was driving.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t for pleasure. My Mum and Dad drove up to visit family and while here, Dad has had a heart attack. Fortunately, it is not as bad as first thought. He is rather a tough old bird. He is being well looked after in a small country hospital, but we are all a bit up in the air as to how long he will be here, what treatment will be required and when and how we can get him home.
We are very lucky that we have family here who are being wonderfully supportive.
Hopefully we will all be home again very soon and he gets much better.
