A Fraught 24 hours.

Hi

My son missed his plane yesterday due to a huge traffic jam on the way to the airport.

He got so stressed he had a small absence seizure as well.

A load of hassle and cost later he has just boarded In Taiwan and due home tomorrow now.

Thanks for all your good wishes.

Hope he has better luck tomorrow, Swim.
Will you go and meet him? What time does he arrive?

Hi

I could certainly do with some sleep ST, was up all night on the internet and phone.

He is due to arrive at Manchester T1 at 10 tomorrow morning, the flight is normally around 30 minutes late.

I hope I do not get held up on the way there.

Re: A Fraught 24 hours.

Oh dear Swimmy, hope your son gets home okay. I sincerely hope he isn't travelling by train though because as you know, as of tomorrow, they start a 27 day strike. (no trains at all barring one day - election day). Poor commuters and travellers. I'm counting my blessings I'm retired and no longer commuting.

All best wishes for a safe and uneventful journey home for your son.

Hi

I am tracking him, currently above Myanmar and about to enter Bangladesh airspace.

I will be collecting him.

Just arranged for carpet fitter to arrive at 7.30 tomorrow to give me time to get to Manchester.

I have cancelled Monday Clinic, I will survive.

Swimmy I hope the rest of Guy's journey is trouble-free, with his medical history it might be a good idea for him to take up relaxation techniques to help him cope with stressful situations.

It has certainly helped me cope with a medical condition

Hi

Thank you ever so much Meg, you really are a Star.

Guy's Epilepsy is caused by a Head injury, nothing we can do about it at all.

We are where we are, I will get him the best treatment here, but it really will be a miracle if he recovers.
