Michael Beaumont
31st May 2019​​​

Michael has had a stroke and is in Denia Hospital. He is not being allowed home because it has made him quite aggressive. I will contact Jo again after the weekend, to see if he can have visitors. If so, I'll go and see him next week.

UPDATE 4th June
I visited Michael on Monday in Denia Hospital. His son has been over for a few days, and is going back to the UK today. Michael was sitting up in a chair, but was obviously in some pain from time to time.
He is being moved to the IMED hospital in Teulada today. I will try and see him again before the end of the week and give you an update.
I saw Jo breifly at Denia as she left to go to Teulada to complete the paperwork. I think that she may well appreciate a word or two of support from one or two of the ladies if they have the time.

UPDATE 5th June
Elaine spoke to Joanne on the telephone this afternoon and Michael has now moved to the Residencia, Tuelada and would be pleased to see any visitors from the club.

UPDATE 18th June
David McAulay and I visited Michael this afternoon.  We were with him for about an hour and I am pleased to report that he was in good spirits and happy to chat about various things including 41 Club.  He experienced a few memory lapses but was generally in good form and I am sure he would appreciate regular visits from other 41 Club members.

UPDATE 13th August
I saw Michael yesterday. He seems to spend most of his time in the common lounge, and although visibly pleased to see me, he didn't really know who I was and once or twice asked me my name.
His speech has got quieter and quieter, and I struggled at times to hear everything that he said. However, I concentrated on telling him about recent 41 Club events, and David and Morag and Ted and Sue's move to Mare Nostrum in Alfaz del Pi.
Our social lunch is in the same road as the Residential Home, so anyone coming on the 21st, please call in and see him, the only restriction being no visitors between 1.30 and 3,30 pm.

UPDATE 30th September
An update on Michael!
He cannot walk now, he cannot even stand without help. He needs help feeding also, which wasn't so a few weeks ago.
He gets more confused about " things he is doing" and his voice is getting quieter and quieter ( that's the Parkinson's). You have to sit quite near to have any chance of hearing him.
Nevertheless, if people have the patience then it would be nice for him to see others,... he might not know the name but the face he would quite possibly recognise. 
Maybe take him to the cafe. 
He might need help with the drink!!

Visiting would be better in the afternoon, as he usually has his physio in the morning (apart from weekends.)

David had his faulty heart valve replaced yesterday, He is very confused as he has a bad reaction to the anaesthetic, hopefully it won’t last as long as last time.

David has had a really rough time over the past few months, so recovery will take a while. They've both been through the mill, but this should be the turning point. Our thoughts and affection are with David and Pauline.
