Took a short trip to Nelson, as Erle has an appointment at Nelson Hospital with his surgeon. While driving in towards the city I couldn’t resist taking these photos of the snow on the Mountains and the Nelson coastline with the sun shining on the ocean. Nelson is lovely when the tide is in like this
The Hospital staff were so thorough in their efforts to let us know just what Erle’s Operation will entail, took two full hours meeting all the possible people who just might need to know him. We were impressed by how thoroughly they prepare for these events that are so traumatic for the patients.
We were so fortunate to be able to meet up with kayne – my handsome 25 year old, Grandson for the evening and to go out for a nice meal together at the Wakatu Hotel, which is just around the corner from his flat. Enjoyed a very nice time with Kayne shared a few drink and games on pokies lots of chat and the meal. Don’t see Kayne often but he doesn't change still the lovely young lad he always was.As we will have to return to Nelson in a couple of months for Erle’s treatment so will be able to meet up with him again.
