Its come to something when Deathclub is the highlight of my week ! Jon would have died if I had not been there as I did CPR on him for 20 mins until paramedics arrived . His chest still aches . He is eating more but looks much older and whiter , like somebody who is very cold. His mum - who he hasn't seen for 2 years - said that she might pop in if she is passing . As she lives about 150 miles from here , I don't think she will be passing on the way to get groceries ! He painted a bit of a wall today as he wanted to move about.
