Is the week over yet?

What a week.

I already mentioned a colleague’s mother-in-law and an ex-colleague of mine passing away last weekend. I went to the latter funeral today. The family are understandably very upset at his unexpected death at 63. They had a nice booklet with a eulogy that talked in detail about his life. Nice touch.

Just before the funeral I got some health news about someone, which I won’t divulge just now.

Then when I got back home after the funeral I got the news that a guy I know was hit by a tram this morning in Victoria Parade. He’s off the critical list now, and is stable, though there’s some risk of brain damage.

Definitely one of those weeks.

I realise death and serious illness isn’t something to joke about, but I reckon your friends should stay in bed!

Man, I’m so sorry.
Do you know if he is conscious yet?
I hope he gets to see his family soon
Gosh.. that’s just terrible

Bridget, he’s okay, he’s in a medically-induced coma, will be revived soon, and tests so far indicate there should be no permanent damage. Touch wood.
