Ten days ago my father suffered a brain haemorrhage and on the unlikely chance that he survives he will need nursing care for the rest of his life and hate it. He has also contracted pneumonia. He can't communicate and today he did not recognise me apart from a five minute window. I am his only close relation. If he makes it to the 4 July he will be 91. On the positive side he is getting the best of attention and despite the doctors' strike his doctor was on duty and came to see him.
I dream of boys with big bulges in their trousers,
Never of girls with big bulges in their blouses.

Best of wishes for your father, and yourself. Wish I could send you strength and positivity in actuality, but you will have to make do with my intangible versions.
And give his doctor a firm handshake from me. There's one who's in it for the right reasons.

5 degrees? Luxury! It's 3 degrees here - that might not be cold for you but is for us, and we all know how insanely cold Canada gets. Dunno why you stay there in the wintertime.
Wednesday 2 weeks ago we had the coldest day ever since records began 130 years ago - even had snow in the front yard, first time ever here by the beach - it was awful. (It does snow inland from here - dunno why the silly beggars live there either)
