Hello Monday, hello world, hello bloggers and hello family, how is life treating everyone on this lovely Monday morning the 16th January 2017.
I am well, I have been up and dressed since 5.30am and what have I done, well I have read around 35 blogs and now I am writing a post for the day, I have also had breakfast but not much to do in way of housework today, just need to put the clean washing away and unpack the dishwasher I turned it on to wash at 6am.
Now to some news about my mum, yesterday she wasn’t good again like she was last week when Sandy rang the ambos but this time they didn’t bother with the ambos they just put her to bed and was keeping a close eye on her during the day.
Both mum and dad have a doctors appointment this morning at 8.30am with Andrew the doctor they have seen for many years and have to say he is a pretty damn good doctor, I think Sandra will be going with them to the doctors.
I felt like crying yesterday when I saw mum, I also felt useless as with my bad knees and bad back and shaking hands there is little I can do. I sent messages to all my girls as well as Kelli and Kirsty to let them know how their nanna was and I received this message from Kelli that made me feel a bit better.
“I’m sure if you were as young as Sandra is and not going through
your own pain and suffering you’d be there too. I know you would
want to be there for nan and do more, but your tremors and bad
knees won’t help. And Nana knows that loves you, you are not
useless, just cause someone else can do more doesn’t make you
I am praying for mum every day, along with praying for Natasha who is going through her own stuff now, stuff I cannot talk about because she doesn’t want me to, stuff I would love to be able to talk to mum about but have not been able to do so.
Mum hasn’t been right since Nanna died and all the family are worried about her, I know my sister will ring me later and tell me what Andrew had to say about mum. It was suggested when she was in hospital last week that she goes into Belmont hospital for 7 to 14 days for assessment and for a plan to be drawn up and put in place to help her recover but mum didn’t want that and I understand that but since less then a week after returning home she was not with it again shows it wasn’t a once of and she has to do something more. We are going on a cruise in May and mum needs her health to improve before then.
Also yesterday we were talking about how us siblings thing mum and dad need to have an Enduring Guardianship with Sandra and Dave appointed as their guardians. Want to know more about an Enduring Guardianship go here: http://www.tag.nsw.gov.au/enduring-guardian-faqs.html
So this is something we will have to talk to mum and dad about sometime soon, I also want to contact the Dept of Housing to find out how they go about getting the house altered to make it easier for mum to get in and out of the house as she can’t manage the stairs any more and needs hand rails in the toilet and bathroom as well.
I do wonder how Dawson is really coping with all this he is very much a nanny’s boy and he doesn’t say much but I am sure he is worried about his nanna and wouldn’t like to see her the way she is at the moment.
