Jeremy…husband of Catherine, father of Ben, Simeon, Tom, Joshua & Lydia. Up until the end of April 2015, he was pastor/vicar of a group of churches on the edge of Exeter in Devon, UK.

News in a text

Since publishing the earlier blog posting this morning, Catherine has just sent me a text from the hospital saying this,

“Wow – he looks much better. Has a nurse with him. Was watching TV and trying to talk a bit. Not sure how much he understands”

I’ve told her not to wear him out too much so that, when I go in later, I will see the change.
