The aged FIL was taken to hospital this morning. The washer called the fire brigade (which is what you do here in an emergency) because she noticed his mouth was a bit droopy on one side, and he was slurring his words even more than usual. There was a television campaign in the UK a couple of years ago titled FAST.

F: Has the face drooped on one side? (Yes). A: Can the person raise both arms and keep them up? (No. Mind you this was the case beforehand.) S: Speech – is it slurred? (Yes. Mind you this was nothing new either). T: Time to call the emergency services.

So there’s the possibility he’s had a stroke. He’s been taken to Orleans where they will be running tests. There will be further updates as I receive them…
