Not much news today, so I guess that the old adage that `no news is good news` holds true. Graham and I went to see him today, and he is considerably brighter than he was yesterday. We spoke to his doctor who told us that he was `on the mend`, and it is hard not to agree with him. They will be taking the drain out soon,and he should be on the way back to Bideord to recuperate within the next few days.
Thank you to everyone who has called giving good wishes.
By the way - his new book `Fragrant Harbours, Distant rivers - Making of Modern Africa` is out today. Dad is very proud of it - as are we - and he has been showing his first copy round the ward. I wonder if we can get it stocked in the hospital bookshop? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
