An update

Son 1 is enjoying his hospital stay! Of course being a private clinic the facilities are somewhat superior to the NHS. Today he phoned home to ask us to bring in swim gear and shorts for the gym...

Mother-in-law has been assessed and hopefully some home care will be put in place shortly. It is highly unlikely her husband will return home.

Father is still in hospital having tests for probable blocked arteries. Best case prognosis is medication, worst case bypass operation.

Three notable things:

1. I've completed my assignment and emailed it to my tutor today, as well as reporting our difficult circumstances. It's probably a load of rubbish, but hey ho!

2. It was World Autism Day yesterday. This sort of passed me by, but thanks to Casdok today I found this list of famous people and fictional characters suspected of being on the spectrum. It's interesting because the Google search which most often brings people to my blog is for 'celebrities and autism'...

3. Last day of school for son 2 tomorrow before a two week break for the 'Easter' holiday. I still can't my head around how weird it has all been this year with Easter so early.

Really pleased to hear that Son 1 is enjoying his stay!
World Autism Day was harldy mentioned here in the UK, if i didnt read US blogs i would have missed it too!
Well done for doing your assignment with everything that is going on for you.

Glad things are a little better, Cathy - hugs!

The NAS knew about World Autism Day because they had people on several TV programmes on Weds. But somehow they don't seem to have raised awareness of it elsewhere, even to their local branches!

Sounds like things are on an even keel for now. So glad to hear it!

Best of luck with the assignment. Hope the family will be okay, hospitals aren't the nicest of places but the best environment to get you better! And I was surprised at the celebs who appear to be on the spectrum too. Very interesting that Bill Gates is human.
