HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Yes BL - the meds are no good until the line has been put in - hopefully someone will be out this afternoon .............. Lyn, has anyone said they're coming?  If not ring and let them know that you have the meds and need a cannula fitted as a matter of urgency.

HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

I can't help feeling that Lyn has been let down by her GP practice.  She's not been informed about the help her father is entitled to, and it seems that the proper referral to Social Services for a Community Care Assessment hasn't been made.  That has lead to a delay in the care funding being allocated and the appropriate carers found - there are no carers sitting waiting for work. 

Also as soon as Ma became poorly a couple of weeks ago and it was recognised that she was declining, the GP ensured that  End of Life Care was put into place - a hospital-type bed with an air-flow mattress to avoid pressure sores was provided, the appropriate notes were put on her file and the nurse visited to do all necessary so that as soon as it's needed the End of Life Syringe Driver can be put in place, even over the weekend, with no need for delay.  Ma will be kept comfortable whatever happens.

I don't understand why this wasn't set up for Lyn's father some time ago - as far as I can see it can only be down to slackness on the surgery's part

The Tesco key ring tag is to enable customers to swipe it at the checkout without having to root though their purse/wallet to find the right card - it's not for ID.

I've seen what I think are Diving Beetle larvae eating the leaves of oxygenators - they seem to grow back just fine.

I like the native hornwort - it's a brilliant oxygenator and settles in quickly, but it doesn't mind being radically thinned as necessary.

We used to play with it as children, weaving little baskets and mats.

Lyn ((hugs))

I thought I'd read that you'd cancelled some paid for care because other funded care had been arranged?  What's going on???


Which brigade are you?

We dug properly to create a veg patch when we moved here and since then we dig when we've had to remove tree roots invading the veg patch.  Hopefully that problem is over now, as the tree was poorly and had to go. 

Otherwise, a light forking over topped with lots of home made compost
