Mum is very ill

We had a phone call on Monday from Mum's nursing home to say that she had been admitted to hospital. We went to the hospital and spent about 6 hours there with her.

Tuesday John and I had solicitor meeting arranged in the afternoon, and then went on to see my parents' accountant. Helen went to visit Mum. Who was initially agitated, but then calmed down and Helen held her hand.

This evening Helen and John went over to the hospital. They are giving Mum final care, trying to keep her comfortable. We can visit any time. Hope I can get early bath so we can get over early in the morning.

Hospital will call us any time if there's a change.

My thoughts are with you, sitting in hospitals waiting for things to happen is not good.
Bit concerned about the photo - how did you manage to take it without getting run over, and where did that blue sky come from...

Maggie,
I am so very sorry to hear that your mum is so ill. I cannot even imagine the sadness you must be feeling...we all cherish our mums and the resignation of just waiting and watching is sometimes overwhelming. I used to be a nurse in a senior's nursing home, so I have been there on the medical end and my heart always went out to the families in that position. Sometimes all you can do is be there and hold your mum's hand...comfort in knowing that her loved ones are with her.

Thank you for stopping by and I appreciate all the kind words. I'll be thinking of you.

Linda

I'm choked to read this and yet once again love your photos, especially as I've never been to Liverpool. It looks fab. And the sun seems to be out a lot! I know things are hard but even silly things like the weather stay in our memory at times like this. I hope more sunshine is on the way, incongruous though it sounds. I think it helps us through, helps us celebrate life.
