This week I spent a couple of days on the West Coast visiting family and this included a large amount of time spent in Greymouth Hospital where by Dad is currently residing following a stroke 6 weeks ago. Its great for him that the view from his ward's lounge is over the Grey Airport so he's able to monitor whats going on, and of course a bonus for when I visit that its only a stones throw away and photos can even be taken from the hospital itself!

Herewith are some of the machines snapped during the week:
