Hello again, dear friends. I know it has been a very long time since I was around and about. I do hope everyone is as ok as possible and I will read as much as I can.
I think I mentioned last year that Mum had gone into care, with failing health and mental health problems (dementia). Sadly Mum passed away on New Years Day, so that was a smack in the face to 2015. Her last 6 months were good ones though. The care home had a specialist unit to care for people with memory / physical problems and the staff were absolutely wonderful. Mum was settled and thought it was "home", which is nice to remember. The funeral was perfectly fitting for Mum and she is at peace, laid next to Dad.
A lot of sorting out, as you can imagine, finally seem to be done and dusted. Some days are better than others.
Just one thing to finalise, we asked for a full continuing care assessment for Mum, back in August last year, well, we heard nothing and of course Mum has passed now. We have our MP on the case and it has gone to the highest department for a full investigation as nothing was done in a timely manner. We will wait and see, but they should be ashamed. Anyway, that's ongoing.
I am now diabetic, to add to everything else, arthur is biting as arthur does, still taking a shed load of medication, numbers of pills seem to climb for ever. At least my blood sugar is under control and I have lost quite a bit of weight, which is a good thing. Funnily enough it does not seem to help with reducing any pain, hey ho, one carries on.
So, that is where I have been. It will be nice to catch up in the cafe again. Everyone take lots of care, xxxx Bubbles
