Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

I know how to do it, but she is frightened and thinks she will fall, so far the nurse has turned her and I hold on to her for reassurance, then she can treat the area. we do the sheet together, they did put those nappies on but because of the soreness they said she was better free, just on the pad.

I dont know anyone around here, quite remote although only 5 or so miles from the surgery, you would think its was 50 by the way they go on!.

OH gone to work and she wouldn't like any other but a male nurse to see her 'bum and bits', she also doesnt complain so much if a trained person is here.

You know, I feel like giving her the whole lot of morphine, what is the point in 'care in the community'  that they go on about.

I have just been told, no help for today available. All I want is for someone to help me turn her so we can wash and apply some cream, put a dry inco sheet on. 15 minutes is all I need!

This NHS is disgusting, she told me to complain to someone higher up., I told her it wouldn't do any good if I complained to the Queen!

Pauline, there will be no help, unless I say I really cant go on, then they will probably  put her in a hospice, none of us want that. Thankfully it wont go on too long.

seed starting

I cant see what they are, but if just leggy annuals you can pot them on when they are big enough just bury them  almost up to the first set of leaves, even if it means curling them round in the pots.

This is why most of us dont even start our seeds until we have longer days, no struggling up for light then.

Remember, you wont be able to plant them out for about 2 months.

It was on the news this morning  that people should be looked after at home and stay with their families if they want to and care should be available. I remember this exact story on the news 10 years ago, things are still exactly the same!

We didnt get a good night I sat up with her until 3.30am then I told her I was going to the loo. I quietly slipped off to bed. At 5.30 she called over the baby alarm, ' lyn, are you there, are you in the loo' !! She is all there.

Lily, everyone is geriatric around here!!

The district nurse is coming again in the morning but to be honest, I am not sure she will last much longer, we have had a terrible couple of hours, I am exhausted, not as much as she must be though.

I have given here  a dose of morphine and she is very calm now, hopefully will stay like that all night.

I have bought a baby alarm so I can hear every breath, its like having a new baby again.

Supprot for Solanum glasnevin?

I have it close to the trellis and just tie it in, I do find that in strong winds branches tend to snap off easily so maybe you can put some eyelets into the wall and just tie it as it grows. There is no way you will be able to wiggle it through a trellis.Its tough.

I never really like to move plants when they are establishing, it will be making a good root system below ground shame to disturb it.

TC I maybe shouldnt say this but you cannot grow carrots in pots and transplant, wait until the weather is warm them sow directly outside.
