Indeed. Peter will not go anywhere. He is now confined to a hospital bed in his own home. But he is making progress. Says he's been standing on his own feet ten times today. That's a first for many moons and I never thought I'd live to see that again! If he keeps it up he may be able to get into his kitchen and cook something decent instead of the food the municipality is feeding him now. Fingers crossed!

Indeed he has. These last two years led to an all time low in spring, but once he had hit rock bottom and it became clear to him that he wasn't going to die and that he couldn't rely on friend's to take care of him 24/7 he finally caved in and let the municipality take over. Hence the hospital bed, smiley - nurses and carers who clean the house and heat his food.

He doesn't drink quite as much as he used to, is eating again (albeit not very much) and is keen on some rehab gymnastic in order to make it possible for him to get into his kitchen and cook something decent himself.

I still run a few errands for him, only yesterday i bought him some crackers and - anything to make him eat again!

Other than that he is his nasty old self when he is too drunk - you know that from personal experience - but quiet and well behaved as a smiley - sheep when he is not smiley - biggrin

I won't. He'd want to know why. Then what should I tell him? He dislikes being talked about as much as you and I.
