His friend's wife isn't expected to last until the weekend, she is only in her early 50's.
She was advised a few years ago to stop drinking but she was unable to manage this.
Her liver has now failed, there is nothing more that can be done for her.
She and her husband lived with her father, the two men don't get on.
So as from this weekend, hubby's friend will be homeless.
Hence the phone call, guess who he is moving in with, yep, us!
