Some sad news ...

My grandfather passed away yesterday evening after a long battle with dementia and a short one with pneumonia. It's feels bad saying it, but I am glad he is at peace now. I am doing ok as is my mother but my grandmother is obviously quite distraught, she expected him to get better.

Due to this I may not be around for a little while, I am due to have my next lunbar puncture on Wednesday which I can't really cancel. So not sure when I will be back but hopefully it won't be too long.

Speak to you all soon,
Take care of yourselves,
