Just wanted to reach out to anyone who spent Christmas without their loved one or visiting them in hospital. This was our second Christmas with our D in IP. She came home for 3 hours during the day and we were able to open presents together. Here’s hoping 2020 will be a better year for everyone xxx
Hi yellowcaty!  Thanks for the update - I have been thinking about you and your d.  I'm glad she was able to come home to open presents for a while - here's hoping 2020 is a better year for you both. xx

Thanks yellowcaty. Especially when it sounds really tough for you too. 
Currently no light; only tunnel 🙁
Thank for letting us know. I am pleased she was able to come home  even if just for a few hours.

Thank you for thinking of others too.  Glad your d was able to be home for a few hours on Christmas Day.  Hope 2020 is better for you and all of us. X
