Just a quickie to let you know I won't be around for a bit.
My mum (80 on Easter monday) went to visit her sister in Suffolk (Bury St Eds) at the weekend, had a fall, and the result is...........
She's got a broken right ankle and a broken toe in her left foot, so both are plastered/snow boot (whatever that means).
West Suffolk Hospital (gawd love 'em) are sending her to a nursing home in Lyme Regis by ambulance tomorrow.
All female crew for when she needs tinkle time, together with packed lunch.
I'm off down there Weds morning. Don't know when I'll be back.
It's going to be a long haul, as I think it will take weeks, if not months, for this to get better, and even then, I don't know if she'll be able to look after herself at home afterwards.
I looked at the home on the internet (god bless google) and it's a private home, with single rooms in excess of £400 a week.
I hope to god the NHS/DSS is going to pay for this.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
The rest of us are a bit crap.
