The outings

on March 9, 2016

It became impossible a long time ago for me to take Anthony home, or out for a drive etc. because he is just too immobile. But one of his many nephews, Michael, makes a point of coming down from Perth regularly and actually enabling such an outing.

Michael always liaises with me about what time of day, and we make a tentative plan. So, a few days ago, Michael arrived promptly at 10am and, with the help of one of the nurses, we got Ants into Michael’s car and drove down to the Dome cafe.

Over the years, this has been a regular occurrence and I love it because, without physical assistance, I can’t get Ants out and about but Michael makes this easy. It is a fantastic gesture and each of those mornings in Michael’s car, with all of us sipping coffee and Anthony gobbling his own, and Michael’s cake or biscuit has left an imprint.

Thank you, Michael.
