Re. Tommy G2FUU :-
Olive reports that Tommy is making progress, albeit slowly.
He still has the tracheostomy in place so he cannot speak
but he responds to speech with nods etc and they intend to move
him out of intensive care this week.
Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery now Tommy !

Re. Don G0JWE :-
Don's XYL Daphne is back home after having major surgery last week.
She is recovering well and reports that Don is proving to be an excellent nurse.


That's all for this week,
