Get well Patrick

Our good friend and golfing buddy, Patrick, was admitted to hospital with Meningitis, in Portugal,
 the day before Barry and I flew out to join him and his partner Jan for a much needed holiday.
He has been very ill (indeed he still is )and everyone has been praying for his speedy return to health. 
 We stayed with Jan in Portugal until last Wednesday, and were relieved to hear that he would be transferred by air ambulance back to the UK on Saturday.
He was flown to Doncaster yesterday afternoon and then taken to Barnsley hospital, where he
 is now resting after a very tiring journey.  He is still in a coma, but there has been
 a slight improvement in his condition over the last two weeks and he still has a long way to go.
Here's the card that I have made for him.  It's a stamp-set that I use a lot for Get-well and 
thinking of you cards - Hopeful Thoughts.  The colour combo is Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
 and Very Vanilla.  For the corner swirls I have used a stamp from Vintage Vogue
 - another well used stamp-set!!
The message says it all Patrick - Get well soon!!
