Lovely day with beautiful granddaughter

Lovely day with beautiful granddaughter

Something to feel happy about our first granddaughter is 18 such a special beautiful young lady, love her so much, she passed her driving test on Friday, my heart feels with so much love for her. George had a good time in the restaurant for birthday dinner, he was he was exhausted after the dinner, but a lovely day had by all, he did cough and choke but it was noisy in there no one really noticed. Hope you are all ok. Yvonne

Yes I have gone a bit mad. Recently returned from Australia and Thailand and just booked to go to China. It’s a singles holiday but someone else on this site is going as well. I hadn’t made the final decision about China but while I was away 3 friends died, another reminder how quickly things can change, so booked within a week of getting home.

I had decided I would finally do the decorating and repairs, the results of falls and carers not being very careful when moving equipment, wheelchair, commode, hoist etc. I then had second thoughts. It’s not going to get any worse and it will still be here when I return so at the moment I’d rather spend the money seeing the world, before my body starts to deteriorate too much.

My darling comes with me in spirit and I still think and pray for all you lovely folk on this site who are living through the nightmare that is PSP.

Sending you a big hug.

Bev I really don’t blame you feeling very envious, but still so happy George is at home, things have got hard but going to have a couple of weeks off in February, everything organised for George’s care, he will be at home, full confidence in his care while I am away. Decorating can wait, our skirtings are all scratched walls doors and even radiators, just ignore it . Sending you a big hug have a lovely time in China are you meeting up with the person from the site? Xxxxx

Are you going somewhere you can relax in February? It’s good George can be cared for in your own home.

Someone else from this site is going to China at the same time. My sons’ minds worked overtime when I told them I was going on holiday with someone I’d met on the Internet. I think they were relieved when I said it was a female and from this site 😆

You are only going because you need that break. If George didn't have PSP, there would be no need. So if you have to blame anybody, it's olde PSP, yet again!

Lots of love

Really delighted for you and George and the birthday girl. Our lovely granddaughter turned 18 last summer. Jon was still walking and we were able to join in like you. What change for us since then.

Passing her driving test meant more impromptu visits for us which is lovely. You have that to look forward to.

How have you organised your care at home? I'm so in need of a break myself and home is definitely best for Jon.

All the best to you both.

Hi Yvonne,

Struggling a bit with P`s constant coughing and choking - I find it really upsetting to witness (but not nearly as bad as it must be for him !)

Just taking it a day at a time and trying to make the most of what we have now and not think about what we`ve lost, like everyone else here.

Still awaiting the outcome of our CHC appeal too - the stress is something I could really do without.

Love to you and George.

Oh my god sounds just like George coughing and choking it is so horrible. Good luck with CHC when should they get back to you? You could do without all that worry. Sending you a big hug. Yvonne xxxxx

Yvonne a lovely photo of the birthday girl. I am glad you all had a good time. My Granddaughter is 14, 15 in March. Where did the time go?She keeps talking about when she can drive!! Scares me silly thinking of it. She was here with me last night. We always have a good time together. It's a special relationship isn't it?

Hope you enjoy your break in a few weeks time. It will do you good even if you do feel guilty.
