Hi all - a family member has contacted me to let me know Taffy is in Shrewsbury Hospital following a fall and a broken hip - he has had his op and is okay medically but quite confused - I am going to see him early evening tomorrow and I will let you all know how he is.

I found David (Taffy) very frail and very chesty and quite poorly. The op on his hip went okay but it has left him very weak indeed.

He knew who you were on FLOW when I gave your regards and best wishes - but is disorientated - stll managed to swear to me about being in hospital!

Hello Jan,
Thanks for the update.
He may be frail, but I know Taffy will do everything to escape the clutches of the medicos.
It is a good sign that profanity was the order of the day (Bless Him)
God Bless you too for being such a good and reliable friend; I am sure it gives Taffy added strength for the fight.

Is he likely to stay at the same Hospital in Shrewsbury for awhile?

God Bless Jan,
Richard

We writers use words freely - but sometimes we don't have them and that's okay - we are still understood

Saw young Taffy today who is looking a wee bit better than he was which is great to see. He gave a beaming smile and sent grateful thanks for all the well wishing from the clan. I hope to see him in even better form next week.

My sister and I also saw Taffy last evening - and he was indeed brighter - still a way to go according to the medics - but according to Taffy - 'I will be back!'

Wee update on our friend Taffy - he is now at Oswestry Hospital - Sheldon ward - better for being in a smaller dedicated hospital - I have visited twice and was impressed by the care - Taffy himself remains weak but much more restful - just lost a bit of 'the fight' coming in and out of being a wee bit confused - but able to hold a converstaion in-between.
If anyone wants to send a card - let me know and I can give full address.

Thanks - and David passes his best to you all
