Paramedics are wonderful people. As soon as they arrive on the scene you feel as if everything is going to be ok. Yesterday was no exception. They were calm and efficient, asking questions and jollying Ma along with just the right amount of humour.
As they were wheeling Ma out of the house, one of them turned to me and said he remembered taking my Dad to hospital last December.
I suddenly realised that that would've been the last time Dad was in this house.
Cue overwhelming and unexpected tears.
