  • Morning, it was misty earlier but thats about cleared otherwise another dry day here still very cold though.

    Lottie like the others have said you do need more help especially with these episodes, at least a contact number for help when MR needs picking up of the floor.

    Some baking today then of to buy compost.

    • Good morning everybody.

      It's drizzling here, and cold. No plans for the day. I'd bake, but as I've given up flour for Lent, and to lose some weight, that's out.

        • Good morning all,thanks for the kind words,looks a dull overcast day thus far outside,
          Ref outside help,the so called help i did get,to wash and get to bed,was great initialy,it got me back into a better place,also combind with some family help,the thing was,the care system got extremely slopy,not so much the cares themselves,as some were brilliant,but,the so called management is no good,they introduced 2 new young peeps,who had baisicly very little so called training on the job,once each at ours,then put on their own ,it ended up with so may different peeps,was not good for him or me,they were supposed to come about 10 am,well,on the days he gets up {like today}at 8am,and needs stripping off and showered,it is better for me to do it,otherwise it is strip,put something else on him until they do turn up,could be gone 11am,as for when he has falls,i have been tolled ring the ambulance,111,i waited a long while for them,to be tolled when they arrived to dial 999,it to is a nightmare,the operators WILL NOT listen,that all you need is a help up,instead,they tell me to be quiet and listen,is the patient breathing ext ext,so it is very very confusing WHAT to actually do,things have been better the last month since i have been doing it on my own,he has a better routine,and responds well to me most of the time,once i have moved,it will be good,as family on tap so to speak,who are in the caring profession,the care i was getting i have to contribut,it adds up to a lot more than his allowance,this bill is not yet sorted,when it did come i questioned it,result is,even head office could not understand it,still waiting to hear,exactly what i DO need to pay,so all in all to sum it up,it was good to start out with,when i needed it most,got to be a ruddy pain and more stress,especially when no one came,then tolled lies about her so called visit,,i just get very flustered when he has his episodes,still no responce whatsoever ref pads,so have to go get myself,such is life,i still count myself lucky compared to others poor souls ,hence my desperation to move xx

            • Morning all

              Not long been up for the third time this morning. Dog was parading around at 3.00am this morning and whingeing. Got up and took him around the garden.....nothing. 4.00am the same. Eventually finished up walking the streets and fields with him in the dark, squatted a few times but still nothing. Must have been constipation or wind but he seems OK now.............it's me who is knackered.
              Nothing planned for today, so lazy day.

              • LD, I really hope Social Services and care companies are better in your new area. My mum had the same problem with carers for my dad from time to time and even for herself now but only rarely. Things are much better for her now than where she was living before.

                One thing you could consider re falls is one of those emergency pendant systems. They will call paramedics for you and you don't have to go through the whole rigmarole. Costs money, but a weight off your mind perhaps? Also, it's really important you don't get injured too by moving MR about, be it for showers, dressing or lifting. My mum is now wheelchair-bound, largely because she felt unable to look after herself when she was caring for my dad. It seems hard-hearted to think of yourself. But if something happens to you, MR will be in a far worse position than he is now. And you potentially could be left in a much worse position yourself long-term.

                Big hugs to you both, LD.

                • Good afternoon all.
                  Dull, grey and cold here.
                  Had two appointments this morning with the eye specialists.
                  All done now for another five months.
                  No other plans but may go walking this afternoon.
                  Have a good day all whatever way your spending it.

                  And when your back stops aching,
                  And your hands begin to harden.
                  You will find yourself a partner,
                  In the glory of the garden.

                  • Finally got around to giving the hedge a much needed trim after neglecting it for the past 3 /4 years. took most of the day but looks so much better now and will let more light in.

                    • Morning, all.

                      Touch of frost down in the fields and a bit chilly, but looks like it's going to be a sunny day. I'm going to be stuck indoors for much of it. But not all! Time to get sowing...

                      Busy day ahead but things are about under control. This year is shooting past already, though.

                      Right, better get on with things. Smiles all round, hugs for them as want one. Have a great day, everyone.
