No, you'll not want to stay away too long - but neither will you want to drive there n back in the day!

I do hope Motley's OK - is he drinking?

Yes he is drinking Jean.

We have too see what the position is when he gets there because I think they are going to have to do more for him than wean him off the oxygen, he hasn't been in his legs for nearly 5 weeks so far that could be more by the time he goes, he will be so weak they will need to build him up as well with food and physio I would imagine. I will learn more tomorrow.

Good news about Hans but sorry to hear Motley is giving you cause for concern

If German hospitals are anything like ours then I recommend that you try to get copies of all records before Hans moves. It seems to be a common theme in our hospitals that the records do not follow the patient. When Chris was in Papworth a fellow patient, who was in line for a heart transplant, carried a briefcase full of medical charts everywhere he went. Every blood test or other test they did he would ask for a copy and put it in his brief case. We never knew why but perhaps he was, or was related to, a doctor? We certainly had problems with Chris's records following him to his home doctor after his heart attack.

We also have our own records Pat, of every hospital report, blood tests and medications over the years and each time Hans has been to hospital they ask for the `Mappeī, I didnīt know what they were talking about to start with, which map did they mean
Iīm sure they will organised all that, they have been very professional with everything else as far as I can understand.

Motley is his usual little self this morning. He is 10 years old now so maybe he just head a little dizzy spell due to the heat yesterday, although he is a clever little dog and lays in the shade and mostly without being told.

Itīs all systems go, Wolfgang told me on my daily noon call, they are flying Hans by helicopter to the new hospital tomorrow. I know he is going to tell me not to go there until the temperature is sensible and of course he needs to settle in, he will still be confined to bed for some time and very sleepy still. When itīs time to take his clothes will probably be the time for me to go, when he can spend some time outside. We have the phone to keep in touch, that is if he can talk on the phone. We have to think of our Motley as well as ourselves.
I will see him this afternoon and I will tell you what he says. I bet it will be exactly what I have said, we have to think of Motley as well as ourselves.

Because the temperature will be 33° and its a 2 hour journey by road, it will be a smoother journey for him as well.

After 4 months of ups and downs with Hansīs health I should be used to this, but Iīm not.
Today he was no where near as good as on Monday, very tired,
looked terrible and this is the last time I will see him for a few days.
He was able to mouth answers to what I said, he didn't have the speaking bit in, but the oxygen.
I said it was very warm and we would never go away in the Navajo in high temperatures, he said "no"
We have to think of not just you and me, but our little Motley, he nodded yes.
I told him all our motorhome friends are thinking of him and wishing him well and he smiled.
It does seem rather an effort for him to do anything today, yesterday he sat in a chair for a while I was told, It was obviously too much for him.
Dr. Wolfgang will ring me tomorrow when he knows when he is off.

Guido tells me there are plenty of places to parkup thereīs loads of space he says,.
Maybe if I ask there is a place in the grounds, I will see.

That is a shame, Jan. We are often told, though, that recoveries often go up and down so it sounds like this might be par for the course?

Yes I know its up and down Pat and the lady doctor keeps telling me that and to stay strong.
It was so disappointing after the way he was on Monday,
I have already had a good talk with myself not to be despondent.
