My uncle is not very well. He was taken to A&E yesterday morning. He was kept in overnight. All we know is that it is some kind of aneurysm. He has had blurred vision, blinding headaches.
We do know it is not a stroke. We are waiting for more tests, to see how bad it is. It is too horrifically reminiscent of his sister, my mum, last summer, when we held the tiller and tried to stay afloat before it all smashed into the rocks.
update: He passed a comfortable night. But it looks like he will have to have some kind of operation. I know Dad's friends in Norfolk read this and will be remembering my uncle and father in their prayers. More when I can.
