About A Month

My father-in-law went back into hospital last night, about a month since he was last discharged. We'd been meant to be taking the in-laws shopping yesterday afternoon, but when we got to the house we found him throwing up. Sometimes I'm glad I did time as a nursing auxiliary. We hear they have him on a drip. We'll find out more when we go visiting this afternoon.
