Over Again

well that was Christmas.

I seemed to spend most of it going to and fro to the the hospital. Mum has deteriorated, all a bit emotional as I'm sure you can imagine. She is now semi-conscious and is not eating (the odd mouthful) and the body is starting to pack up. The nurses have been excellent, less said about social workers the better.

Sorry if I'm a bit maudlin but I'm sure you understand. Expect more news soon. I can't say it will be sad since neither Dad or I want to see her "live" like this and I know Mum wouldn't either.

I did hear one thing that made me laugh. One of the nurses spilt some hot coffee one day and apparently on a ward of trained nurses regulation state you have to have a first aider!!!!!! Unbelievable eh.

We did have a Redwing in the garden and the folks. Every Christmas we see them for a few days.

I have so far resisted the urge for retail therapy and buy a new lens, camera or anything else that may cheer me up.

Sad news. Leaves one in limbo. At least you are thinking ahead.

Best wishes.

cheers folks

Toffee - when are you joining the blogging world?

Toffeeapple said...

Probably never, Pete. I work from 8.00am until 5.30 at which time I have to have an hour in bed to straighten my spine. Then it's dinner with my partner at his house then home to bed so not much time to experience much in the open air. Sad, eh? But I enjoy reading your blog and others, too.

Sorry your Christmas was spent to and fro the hospital. I hope you Mom is OK... I know how hard it is to see your Mom deteriorate.

I hope things have lightened up a bit and you purchased your lens. I want a new camera and lens, too!
