So sorry to read the news regarding your son although by the sounds of todays post he is getting on with his recovery, First grandchild is an amazing thing, i now have 7 but the first one always tuggs at the heart strings in a special kind of way.
I really hope things get better with your mother in law, believe me i know, we have had my wifes mother in a specialist care home for 8.5 years now with severe dementia.
Im really glad you found a little time to tinker on the cav in the garage, going through tough times you really need a bit of space now and again to resume a little normality in life and keep the mind occupied in a different way.
My wife and i sincerely offer our best wishes and hope things normalise for you in the not too distant future.
Very best regards,
Chris and Debbie Burt.
