I went to see Ray today, and spoke to Colin as well, but it's not one of her good days. She was mostly lying asleep, but she held my hand for a bit, and I talked to her, although I don't think she really knew who I was or what she was saying. She wouldn't have been able to read your messages.

Colin told me she had a bad patch over New Year and wasn't able to go home after all (the weather was awful too, so perhaps it was for the best) but that she had brightened up on Sunday / Monday.

I remember when she was in hospital after her op. she had a day when she seemed to have given up on life. Today was like that.
She brightened up a fraction when Colin arrived, but only for a minute.

I'll hope I can pass on better news next time I see her.

Date: 31 Dec 09 - 10:26 AM

Dear Ray,
I've just been on the phone to Adam McNaughtan who told me you were ill and he gave me the details of this site where I could pass on a message to you. The poor sowel was on the receiving end of some GBH "au téléphone" because I hadn't received our customary Xmas Card from him! I am to get another wan toute de suite!

Do you remember asking me once, at the Newcastleton festival, if I knew a fukan song or indeed a wurlitzer song?? When I replied in the negative, and keen to educate me, you hastily gave forth with,
"If a can help somebody as I pass along" followed by
"Wurlitzer one for the money, two for the show..." If only you knew the mileage I got out of relating that particular part of our conversation to all and sundry!

I've been living in France for quite some time now (about 20 years) and I don't get back over to the UK as often as I'd like but I have umpteen records, tapes etc; including yours, to keep my pecker up so I am still able to singalonga and enjoy the music.

I don't want to prattle on too long Ray. I just wanted to pass on a wee word to let you know I am thinking of you.

Mary Wigley (Stewart as was)

We played out the old year - I played Flo'ers o' the forest for Ray, amongst other tunes and then we did the Auld Lang Syne bit - I played while everyone else sang and danced.
It's now after 2:30am and I'm off to bed.

Ray went home for Christmas Day and enjoyed herself for several hours.
I haven't seen her since but I gather from others who have that she was perked up by the whole experience. I and others think she is putting on just a little weight.

I spoke to Colin just now and she's coming home for New Year's Day as well. There was some suggestion of a 3 day home visit but Ray vetoed this herself for various medical reasons.
This time they won't have family around: I got the feeling both were a little nervous about managing at home just yet.

I'll update again as soon as I can: I've got a sniffle just now and don't want to pass it on.

Fingers crossed.

So sorry to hear Ray is not well.   We've known each other for a long time, though do not cross paths very often. One of my fondest memories is of Colin presiding over the Northumbrian Pipers' Society in 1975 (at the Tower FC, if memory serves), with Ray serving tea!

Warm wishes for a speedy recovery.

We've just got back from Meg's mams in Wales (computer free zone!) and have just caught up with this thread. We knew Ray wasn't well, of course, but this is terrible news.
Having known Ray for half a lifetime, we've too many good thoughts to single out just one.
I was with her a couple of months ago with our Pat (sharing a fag as usual) and we were talking about that special family thing we both shared and memories of singing together generally but at Christmas in particular - we hope you managed a few verses Ray!
Our thoughts are with you as well as Colin and the family. All our love, Tom & Meg

Ray was quite cheerful in hospital this afternoon (it's still 24th here, Robyn!), but is going home mid-morning, and returning to hospital late afternoon.

Colin told me he and Duncan were going to cover the house in cards. Ray was concerned they wouldn't manage to cook the dinner "properly", but was looking forward to having a smoke in peace. (I know ...., but everyone, including me, agrees she should be allowed to do exactly as she likes.)

She's going to wear her tiara, and a hat with flashing lights, she says.
Although I didn't take in the last few messages due to rushing about, I told her messages were still coming in and that people round the world were all thinking of her, something she finds a bit overwhelming, but is very happy about.

I hope she has a wonderful time with Colin and Duncan, and then when Fiona comes up on Sunday, although she'll be back in hospital then.

I'll hope to see her again in a few days.

Merry Christmas from New Zealand Ray!
It's 8:00am here and Santa has been already.
The 3 year old, dressed in Santa suit pyjamas, is just discovering the toys he left behind - Barbies, dresses and a scooter, and your birthday baby, now 4 weeks old, has just fallen asleep.
It's a perfect summer morning, the wind has died down, there's no sign of rain. We were singing carols outside at a friends place last night, not far from where you stayed with Pat and Frank and I was using my Tatay guitar just like yours.
Thinking of you all,
Have a lovely day at Whitley Bay.

I saw Ray this afternoon, and took in the latest messages, which she reads, and enjoys. The good news is that the antibiotics she's been having for two infections have been stopped and the feed line is getting some nutrition in her.

She's very fragile, but was nibbling cake and sipping coffee. Her doctor came round while I was there, and they're still going to do various scans, presumably to get a more accurate idea of the situation.

I hope to see her again on Christmas eve. I doubt she will be home before the New Year but I could be proved wrong.

Dearest Ray

You are an inspirational performer and have a peerless attitude. Sharing a stage with you, as I'm sure many will readily agree, is an unnerving experience. Your repost at the National to my revealing that my parents, like the chaps in Fair Flower of Northumberland, were a Scottish Man and an English Women, but without the prison bit. "So your some sort of Half Breed then?" Not so easy singing after that, but there's no-one in the world I rather play stooge to.

As I say, unnerving, but infinitely to be treasured.

All our love and best wishes to you, Colin and the Family.

Ed, Annie and Jacob Rennie
