First of all can I just say how touched I am by all your messages on the Farmer's health. You will never know just how much they mean to us and how they are helping us to get through it all.
To update - we have been to see the Specialist today. The brain tumour is a Grade 4, the worst kind, and is inoperable. The farmer is on high doses of steroids and goes next week to discuss having Radiotherapy.
He is in good heart and manages to feed the hens each morning, and the wild birds, and take Tess for three short walks each day.
He sends his thanks to you all too.
