George Lupton is home and recovering well..

Thank you for everyone who has sent good wishes to my Dad over the last few days. He had a bit of a set back on Friday but thanks to the staff at the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton I was able to bring him home last night. Although he got dressed and put his gallises[North Yorkshire word for trousers braces] on he cant do any work for a couple of weeks. Those who know him will remember he was driving a tractor within a week of having his pace maker in. He celebrated his 88th birthday on the ward and was very touched when all the staff and patients sang Happy Birthday and presented him with a cake. With his gall bladder gone he will be able to go back to eating nice things again but for the moment is taking it steady and just glad to be home. It was a huge cloud that has hung over us for the last year that has now lifted and we are just so grateful for all the support you have all given us. Thank you . This photo was taken last shooting season and hopefully there will be many more days like this to come
