13th Aug 07 -- We did it! expedition summer holiday was a success - after two previous attempts of holidaying with Cai both of which led to him being in hospital, this time we managed it with no major incidents.
After months of preparations . e.g where can we get oxygen, what happens if we have a medical emergency in france, how much medication do we take, where are the nearest hospitals etc we left for the UK on the 24th of july, stopping overnight in France, before crossing over on wednesday to stay with my brother and family just outside London. here we fitted an extra seat and picked up and overdrive unit. we did manage a day out in London.
On saturday we drove to llandudno to the house we rented, stopping en-route for lunch at my mothers. the house was lovely and the fresh sea air did Cai good. the boys went tobogganing and we also managed a fishing trip.
the following saturday we returned to my mothers and spent the rest of the time there, it was very hectic as I had to sort out my house and throw out a lot of my treasures although everone else called it rubbish.
Cai managed brilliantly with only one blue (lack of oxygen) incident on the underground which had everyone panicking.
The pictures are mostly in order and I will try and caption them this week, but I am back at work so time is once again short
