Great news about my dad he has been moved to a hospital rehab centre closer to home, and mum can be in her own bed. Dad's muddle-headedness seems to of gone which is wonderful news - it was a tad scary and very much an eye opener about side effects of a full anaesthetic for over 80's. I've put my hand up and asked for help (not like me) by asking if some of my parent's friends can transport mum to the hospital to see dad. They were more than happy to help and understand I have other responsibilities here at home.
Hospital staff have taken the time to explain how important an enduring power of attorney is. I was totally unaware that a spouse can not legally make any decisions on behalf of their husband or wife if they become mentally incompetent. Which makes having an enduring power of attorney just as important if not more important than a will. Link to Family Court of New Zealand and Ministry of Social Justice. Well worth book marking these and reading!

A very angelic Minka - "YEA RIGHT - I've trashed the place"!
Minka had a wonderful party during the day.
Minka put her toy tiger in her drinking bowl to have a swim.
Poor tiger is rather soggy
Pi is extremely smoochie,

Bruno enjoyed the day outside too - it's been nice to have the sun back.
Bruno was also very hard to get to look at the camera - the birds flitting about were far more interesting.
Pinot gazing out at the sheep. He probably would of enjoyed going with his family to Australia to watch the tennis ball too.
