Pat’s sister is here for a few days, so Pat and I went out to the Spanish tapas restaurant we used to go on Sunday nights from time to time when Pádraig was still in hospital. It was incredible how everything came back and how different it was from today. How lucky we are to have Pádraig living with us and getting better.

Just a few months ago, we had hoped for this. Now it is a reality.

His treatment is working and so is he, unbelievably hard.

Still not sure whether we will drive the approximately 700km to Pforzheim next week – in one go or with an overnight stay somewhere. It’s looking increasingly as if we were going to take it easy and stay overnight on the way.

PS: There has been a surge in the number of views from Mexico this week. Wonder where this is coming from?
