A very bumpy ride

This is the third incarnation of my RTC3 blog which started here, but for the moment is taking on a new life recording my darling Janet's recovery from an ischaemic stroke, the result of an unusually difficult TAVI (Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Implantation). The entry here gives background information.

This was a week when the downs contrasted rather too strongly with the ups. Janet had two very enjoyable outings: the first when an old friend and colleague of hers visited and I drove the three of us over to Osterley Park for lunch; and the second when two friends took her out for coffee at Cinnamon in Pitshanger Lane. However, there were times when she became quite depressed, and I've taken other people's advice and booked an appointment with her GP in the hope that anti-depressants might improve things.
