Wow Debbie your Dad is doing well, especially after such a big op, we are lucky here in Spain as we get the free health care we would get in England, if you are a pensioner that is, we arent pensioners yet but steve was injured on duty and so is covered, in Spain we now pay 10% of prescription charges which in Steve's case is only €8 per month, very cheap to say how much medication he still has to take.
I think everyone is feeling the pinch these days and has to make each penny or dollar count, the cost of flights has doubled in the last few years but as you say Ina, we have free lodgings and stay for at least a month, and now we live here that is our main holiday and we visit our son in England before and after our trip to san francisco.
