Mum is home and Dad is settled

Dear All

Sorry for the delay in posting

Mum came home yesterday, will now make a slow recovery but does have a chest infection

Dad seems relatively settled in his new abode and has even agreed to be hoisted this Friday for the music entertainment!! Simply incredible! I'm not saying it's perfect but oh boy it's a relief!!

Me I'm still knackered

Many thanks for all your support over a horrific 16 days! X

  • Dear Amanda, your post was a pleasure to read. Glad your mum is home, I always think people recover better in their own home. As for your Dad, I couldn't be more happier that he is settling in well. You have been to h.ll and back again over the past few weeks, so I hope things keep improving for you all. Now it's time for you to take care of yourself and rest as much as you can.

    Love to you all. ❤

  • Amanda, I'm so pleased to hear things are looking up a bit and particularly that the nursing home is proving good so far for your Dad. It will be such a relief for you, and your Mum, that the responsibility is now shared. You have done amazingly well to get everything back on an even keel.
