Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

thank you for your thoughts.I do have the bottle, he can't pee sitting down,  misses and goes everywhere, so needs to stand to use it, too weak to stand so wants to sit on the commode. Because of already problems, needs to go very frequently, 

it won't be long term, Dove, he's way past that,

I will ring the nurse first thing in the morning, I know she will do it if she is allowed, it just depends whether she needs to ask the doctor beforehand. Dad has had one before, he suffers with the waterworks problem at the best of times, so you can imagine how bad he is feeling on top  everything else.  Poor old boy is trying to get to the commode every time,which is often, I am having a job lifting him and helping back to bed, I am sure they will do it. 

I could never have imagined how someone could lose so much weight  in a short time, there is absolutely nothing on him. He used to be such a big strong man, and only a couple of years ago. He really hasn't the strength to stand up.

he was helping with mum this time last year. So sad.

I can vouch for that Hosta, mine have germinated that you gave me. If you go again could you pick up a few packets of labels please, and something permanent that will stay on them.

Plant ID please!

I have lost my two big ones like that, they survived all winter until the frost a month or so ago, still have one big one left, and all last year's small plants to plant out. Several seeded in the garden.

nime shot up an enormous pinky lilac flower spike last year, you couldn't imagine how many bees were on it. Hope you can keep it MJD, how ever do you get it to stand up by itself?

It's addictive isn't it Lyn........peering into the a bit of debris out also makes it "work" rather than just pleasure so I feel I'm still doing something

Just the same here! 

i read that only one in a hundred will survive to frog hood, shame isn't it.

Good suggestion Susie, but we are in the last stages and I wouldn't think it worthwhile to come of the dole for what will probably be just a week if that, then they have to sign back on, that's not easy. 

I manages to get St Luke's Hospice to come out on a emergency all last year, but they can't commit to anything, it's just a day to day care.

i will phone the nurses tomorrow, if I can get the catheter it will be a great help.
