What is life going to throw at us next! Both my parents are 86years old, divorced and living alone in their flats. My mother who has always been fiercely independent bless her had a fall at 9pm on Saturday evening and was stuck on the floor till 12.30pm the next day because she didn't want to bother me! When I arrived at her flat with a key to get in she had left her key in the lock and put the security bolts on, so I had to ring the police and an ambulance! They had to break in by smashing one of her windows (thankfully she is on the ground floor). When I got to her she was lying on the floor with a big smile on her face and said "I've always wanted a handsome young policeman to come and rescue me!" She had been crawling round all night trying to get up rather than ring me because she thinks I have got enough on my plate! How I hope I have a sense of humour like my lovely Mum at 86! Now I've got to sort out stuff to make her safe which of course I'll have to do because I love her....xx
