27 September 2009


I headed north to Mum's on the 1st of September, to spend a few days there, and then bring her back here for 2 weeks. She was fine when we got there, but 2 days later, spent the night being very sick. The next week was spent up there nursing her, and she looked as tho' she would pick up enough to at least come down here for a week.
Then she took a turn for the worse the day before we planned to leave, and ended up in the Palliative care ward. We had hopes that they would get her well enough quickly, but 2 weeks later, she is actually worse.
Consequently, I have been up north for the last 3 and a half weeks, spending each day at the hospital, sitting with her.

I had to come home this weekend (with my mind torn between wanting to see DH and family, and staying with Mum) as I have run out of scripts, I have deadlines in the office, and the tax department requires a BAS statement.

I will get as much done as I have to, then head back up north.

Prayers, good wishes and healing thoughts for Mum's improvement would be greatly appreciated. Unlike Dad (who had had enough and just wanted to pass), Mum wants to get well enough to continue her life for another year or so, even if it means more chemo and doctors etc.

I will try to get time to check all of your blogs (I have missed so much! no computer or internet at Mum's) and reply to the comments, but please forgive me if I don't. I do appreciate you all still being here, and for your support and friendship.

Love and hugs,
