Hubby got a phone call from my younger brother, who was upset that my dad wasn't going to last the night.
Hubby took out kids round to see him.
*He looked worst than last weekend*
He probably won't last  much longer.
Hubby was glad the time to say goodbye.
My younger brother was trying to move his guilt on to my hubby, for not coming around more often to see  my dad, when he was a lot better.
I got all this when they came back.
I am glad I didn't see my dad, the way he looked!
 My tea supply has arrived↓

A Sad Hump Day.
