Poor old Paggy is still in hospital and he’s not really getting better. He said that he’d originally had a kidney infection and his body is better except for his blood sugar. We visited him on Saturday and he was wired up to a drip and completely groggy, coherent but doped. The nurse asked us if we were relatives and said they need to find someone as Hans should be getting daily care, not once a week. So with Linda’s help, I found his brother’s telephone number and gave it to the ward. The two don’t get on, but he’s Hans’ only relative, maybe next time we visit Hans, he’ll chuck us out. He reckons he’ll be home for Easter, but I don’t think so.
Its been strange here when we’ve been doing stuff around the yard and garden, not to be hailed for a beer or our work criticised, maybe he’ll not come home at all, but go into the Old People’s home in Tamsweg. It looks great, they have this huge reception/dayroom with a bar (this is Austria) and all sorts of facilities, he’ll soon have them rocking!
