Not yet !
The senior vet spends half an hour with Wilf . He's had a stroke - a crise vasculaire cerebrale. The good news - the haemorraging doesn't seem to have done any major damage to the brain .
When asked if it's time , we're told categorically " Non ! Absolument Non ! It's too early. Let the mist fall gently ". Vet as poet . For this last lap of the track we're told to stick to his routine as much as possible.
He's in no pain . The disorientation more alarming for us than him . The vet christens him Tetu : the French word for stubborn .
On our way home Wilf discovers Bubble Gum ice cream .
