    Victoria we have two cruises booked, had four cancelled, so if all goes well we will get on at least one.
    Talk that all international borders here will be lifted April next year.
    Big numbers here again but not serious as all were isolating at the time.

    No doubt like so many you will be happy to get to see your lad and the rest of the family, but when here maybe do some shopping, have heard there ae only two lock downs till Christmas,
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    John our son is still in hospital. The 2hr surgery turned into 5hrs as there were complications. Seems his spleen and his bowel got really cosy and the surgeon had to remove far more colon than first thought.
    They are closely monitoring his spleen now and he has a lot of pain and nausea, so I expect his stay will be a bit longer yet.
    With elective surgery cancelled due to lockdown he does have a private room and lots of nurses looking after him.
    His wife can't visit so any information is coming via said nurses.
    It will be quite a long road to recovery but the main thing is we still have him!
    Keep booking your cruises you will score on one at least.

    Victoria, some mixed news there, but he is in very good hands.

    No one can understand why Elective surgery was banned.
    Most, about 9+5%, is done in private hospitals, none of which would be of much use for patients with the Virus needing special care.
    Most are like drive in drive out with the surgeon of the day brining his own team in.
    No X ray facilities in most or MRI, most private patients having that done in public hospitals.

    But he will be fine, no worries there Victoria, just hang on and with luck we may, and I use the word adviseadly, open the draw bridge next week.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Sorry to hear about the complications with your son's surgery, Victoria. He's in the best place and the best hands, so I'm sure his recovery will be fine once he's over this initial hiccup. It must be very tough on his wife, not being able to visit, and tough on you too. No matter how old they get they remain our children (although I divorced my oldest son when he turned 55 - I refuse to be the mother of a 55 year old!!!).

    I know what you mean about passport photos. Mine were bad enough when I was young - I shudder to think what my next one is going to look like. I've reached that age where we have to renew our drivers' licenses, complete with medical certificates and eyesight tests, and I am dreading the thought of what my new license photo will look like.

    #134 If they let you a big grin would be good.
    The passport ones they don't let you smile. The rooms are usually very bright so every zit is on full display and those bags under they eyes...horrors! LOL
    I didn't have my first child till I was 30yrs. which back in the day was considered to be quite late....called me a "late primate" for goodness sake. I asked if I was expected to hang from the rafters or something.
    Nowadays women put it off for much longer, sometimes to enable themselves to establish a "career".
