I´ll take pics of the nurses for Guest!:lol: And of the food for Food Mom! ( though apparently if you don´t have a visitor, you don´t get fed...have an apple in my bag! AND toothpaste in case I get REALLY hungry)

So unhappy to hear this, John. I hope all goes well in the hospital. I'm thinking of Nicole too with her bad back and having to worry about you and you worrying about her and the dogs and cats.

Thanks, bramble! Just looking at Max and Walker right now and they don´t know I won´t come back tomorrow evening and I feel ever so guilty and missing them already, And poor Nicole is lumbered with 4 dogs (plus 3 million cats ) for God knows how long and , jeez, there´s no one here to help out...the locals? No. No one to trust with the animals.

Da müßen wir einfach durch.

 

I hope, from a personal view: my regular taxi driver Nikos, who is really reliable for long distance stuff at unsociable hours , will persuade the hospital people in Greek this is an emergency and can get them to name  a day when I get home. Nikos does 3 am stuff, 5 am stuff--never lets me down. Even takes dogs, cats and stuff when I need his help. It helps that he thinks internationally - loves Australia and rock music et al...not parochial ie a fixed time is a fixed time..un-Greek!

 

Nicole, man, strong tablets through the pain barrier...that´s why it´s great Nikos is so helpful and not just drinking raki when you  need him - I don´t do advertising for tourists on Crete but if I can recommend anyone ( unpaid advertising ) for anyone , it´s him.

:D Just packed a yellow banana! The only ripe one I could find in the office!

But, apparently, it´s not tax-deductible in the German non-Greek system----so I´ll just have to eat it before the end of the tax year!

That's a horrible situation and what I was thinking of when I read that you have to go into hospital. Pity I'm not living near - I would take the dogs for walks. I did this for 5 months for a neighbour who had to go in and out of hospital several times last year. Took a burden off her heart and shoulders.

He sounds like a great guy. I presume he speaks English at least. Hope he can help out and relieve Nicole a bit. Keep up the good spirits and keep us posted.
