Back home too soon

We spent the last 8 days with my sister & brother in law in Johannesburg & then onto our time share in Pilansberg. It was great & we laughed & had such fun, took lots of game drives even squeezed in a neck, shoulder & back massage. Just bliss - this is time my sister & I just catch up on everything & we love the special time. Both our hubbys are close & good friends and the 4 of us just enjoy it.
Friday morning dawned & my darling hubby was seriously ill with a tummy bug, so we packed up & my BIL lead & I drove from Pilansberg through Joburg & then we said tearful goodbyes & I drove straight to Durban - a 10 hour journey in all. Lots of stops along the way but I arrived at Entabeni Hospital at 8 oclock.
The E & A staff are great, took one look & said we'll take him through, you go & park & then do the paper work.
Well 4 hours later, 3 drips later & meds & blood work, we left the hospital & got home - oh yay it was good. Hubby showered & collapsed into bed I followed.
This morning our kids arrived, unpacked the car, bought flowers for Dad (he loves them) shouted at me for not stopping at a Jhb hospital - which we did think about but made the decision to push on. Told us to relax & they will bring us dinner tonight ! Now they are not always angels but today I am soooo grateful for them.
Hubby is watching rugby in bed & we are both just chilling out - we have decided its a pj's day.

I'm glad that you had a great time away and sorry Aland got sick but at least he is on the road to recovery now

Sounds like you had a lovely holiday, such a pity it ended so badly with your hubby getting sick. Hope he is feeling much better!!

So glad to hear you had a wonderful time in Pilansberg. Hope the hubby is feeling on top of the world by now.
