So the rehabilitation centre that's only 15 minutes away from me is not happening at the moment. On Monday she had a bed, we were all packed and ready by Tuesday night to go the following morning. On Wednesday the doctor wouldn't release her because she has a chest infection and there are no night doctors at the rehab centre. So she lost her bed, which are like hens teeth! So we wait for her infection to clear up with antibiotics and we wait for another bed to come up. In the meantime I take the one hour journey there, spend 7 hours with her, then make another one hour journey back again and get in after 9pm. I'm exhausted! On top of that they want to scan her head as they think there may be a small tumour in her brain!!! It's just one punch in the face after another, I can't cope with it!

      I send big hugs to you <3 with all that is happening. I am so sorry that your mother has the chest infection and she lost her bed at the new place :( I hope the infedtion clears up very soon and that another bed becomes available for her. It is so tiring on you. I continue to keep you in my prayers and thoughts.

      Thank you <3
  • Thought I would post a little update on my absence for anyone wondering. My mum is in hospital and has been since 28th December, she has bowel cancer that has spread to her spine and there is no cure. She has had a major operation which has ensured that I get to keep her for a while longer, although how much longer I don't know. We just have to take every day one step at a time. I drive 40 miles there, 40 miles back (over an hour's drive) and spend 7 hours in another county just to be with her, I arrive home after 9pm every night and it's exhausting. She is being sent to a rehabilitation unit nearer where I live, just 10 minutes away and I can't wait, it will be so much easier. Also the positive thing is that it is rehabilitation, not a hospice. We have time, I just don't know how much. I cherish every moment I have with my wee mum, I love her so much and it's breaking my heart!

      My brother in law has just had an operation for the same thing just before Christmas, hopefully in time. He's got dementia too and I don't know how my sister copes but she is always positive. It is just one day at a time but enjoy the time you still have. Hugs, <3
