Thanks. He is doing really well. The main artery in the right side of his heart was completely blocked. He'll probably be out by Wednesday though. If Heather hadn't put her foot down he wouldn't be here. I think he'll be amazed by how much better he'll feel. This could not have happened overnight. Something told me last night that he would be okay.
That is good news indeed. Good Morning Cathie.

Good to hear from you Carol and glad you're Ok in spite of a few problems.
Enjoy your warm weather - most have us in the northern hemisphere have been freezing with ice and/or snow. Coldest winter for a long time here.🥶 Brrrrr!!
round about now I could do with some ice. Stephen asked me the other night why do I put the fan on and then put the blanket over me. So I told him because I like feeling the warmth of a blanket on me when it is cold, so I have to make my own ideal conditions, 😂 😂

Wait until you get hot flashes. You'll still need the fan but not the blanket!!

That’s me at the moment. I vary between needing the blanket because it’s freezing without it and being so hot I want nothing at all next to my skin. Menopause isn’t good for sleep

On this Day 2020 (part 2): Akaroa is about 2 hours from our Christchurch base and has some dramatic volcanic geology; it was a very attractive place to spend the day.

Here are some cute Red Billed Gull chicks in this post just in case you haven’t recovered from the fur seals 😉

We had our best sighting of a Little Blue Penguin so far; this subspecies is unique to Akaroa.

CDR Virtual Vacations presents On this day 2020 (part 1): Cute Alert! We may have taken rather too many photos of a New Zealand Fur Seal colony near Akaroa we visited at the start of the day, but how can you resist those eyes?!

Oh my, those are just adorable. And you are right who can resist them, I can however resist the smell btw. And look your photo shows their bay in the shape of their flappers / fins?

Such a wonderful trip with unforgettable sights and sounds of all the wildlife. It's going to be hard to top this holiday (whenever that will be)

I’d settle for a couple of days in Hastings right now. I‘m not setting the bar too high in my hopes for a holiday am I? :D
