Karen is having a hard time at the moment. Her mum has had a really bad fall down the stairs, hurting her head and breaking a bone in her neck! She is now in a nursing home, which isn't without its problems.
Karen is naturally, quite worried and stressed by it all, and her arthritis is making its presence felt.
She asked me to send you all, her love, but I think she could do with our thoughts and support.
I hope things improve very soon Karen, take care of yourself.
Thinking of you, your mum and dad.((((()))))

    Thanks, Numpty.

    Karen, I'm so sorry. This sounds dreadfully upsetting and worrying and I'm also concerned about how your own joints are bearing up under the strain. Take care, please. I am thinking of you and you know we are always here for support. ((()))

    Hi Guys

    Thank you for your kinds thoughts .Unfortunately all the stress has made my fingers swell and these days my knees have decided they would not be left out and have joint the choir :lol:
    Poor mother has dementia and since the fall it has got worse , so she has good days and bad days .on the lighter side of it .She woke up at 5am and as she passed the residents rooms and told them "come on get up you have to get ready for school " which made us laugh the nurse said she then went back to bed and got up at 8am :oops: Its really sad as we cannot look after her ourselves as we are all still having to work and my dad is too ill to look after her at home .We are hoping she will go into a new nursing home we have selected at the weekend .There are lots of people there and they have lots of activities going on .The place she is in now there are only 7 residents and only 3 come out and sit in the lounge at lunch time .
    So thank you for all of your support and thank you numpty for posting the thread .Take all and hope all the joints are behaving themselves lts of love karen xxxx
