Yesterday was the most awful day. My 96 year-old Mum had another (more serious) TIA at the beginning of this week. It seems to have affected the part of her brain that recognises letters and images and of course reading is her biggest past time, and I doubt that she would be able to hear audio books. So I booked a sleeper up to visit her as I felt I would bitterly regret it if I didn't.
Then yesterday I had a telephone call - my older sister who is 69 had had a fall and lain all night in her flat. Her son found her in the morning and called an ambulance. It turns out she has had a serious stroke. I spoke to the hospital this morning and they said she is very poorly and they are trying to bring down her heart rate. They are pretty sure it was undiagnosed atrial fibrillation and of course she wasn't anti-coagulated. Today we are driving to the South coast to see her, my other sister warned me she looks as though she has been in a car crash as she hit her face and head as she fell.
When I managed to sleep I dreamt about her.
