Dynasties were teetering today.

My dad has been in the hospital on Saltspring Island with pneumonia. He's been in for a couple of days and his white count is now down to more acceptable levels and they'll probably let him out tomorrow or soon thereafter with orders to recuperate sensibly and avoid heavy gardening for a while.

This morning we get a call that my Father-in-law has been taken to the hospital here in Scotland with a recurrence of heart problems. Down to the Borders General Hospital in an ambulance with blue lights flashing and then up to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary in another.

He too seems to be a bit more stable with one artery unblocked and another due to be reamed out in the next couple of days.

It's been one of those weeks
