All is well! Lovely Husband is back home, looking like a pirate with an eye-patch. The lads still have a toy parrot and they did suggest that he could add it to his accessories for a while, but that was declined 😄.
Younger Son drove his Dad to the local hospital this afternoon for the operation (cataract removal) and was intending go alone to pick him up afterwards. Apparently, LH was working out the odds on me going along too. Of course, he was entirely correct as, when the nurse rang to say we could set off, I jumped out of bed, flung my jeans on and was out of the door in minutes! Then I sat, wheezing, in the car on the way to the hospital and was very wobbly when I got out of the car.
Anyway, thanks to everyone on FB who helped me to stop panicking last night. We have full aftercare instructions and, hopefully, LH will soon be his usual self again.

It has been so hot today that I actually took off the scarf and cardigan. Such a gorgeous day! I hope it is as nice tomorrow as I will try to go out for a short walk, if I am able.
What a lovely combination, Anne! The scarf and earrings give the muted purple/plum a grand pop of color. You look well. Glad to hear that LH is recovering well, too.
Many thanks for the lovely comment. LH is really doing well, although he is grumbling a lot! X
