Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Posted: 21/09/2014 at 03:49

Sounds like my mum fishy, she is still in hospital, they did an ultra sound scan on her kidneys, we may get the results on Monday, hopefully.

They are not even thinking cancer so dont be worried just yet.

My dad has been going on like that for years, he has had two ops, bits took away and all number of horrible things.

Try and get him so see the doc, and please try not to worry until you know something for sure.

Old men are prone to all sorts of waterworks problems, they are not always cancer.

My mum still hasnt grasped the importance of water and the stoma, she cant understand why she feels better when she has hardly drunk anything, she has had saline drip in for 3 days!

I tried to explain it medically but she just looks a bit vague,  she wonders how I know.

I told the nurses tonight to keep her bed warm cos she will be back, It did make her laugh though

He is still going on at turned 90. Blood does not always mean the worst, you would be best not looking up  things like that on the internet, we used to have a medical book and by the time we had finished reading it we had everything going.

It may have gone red because it needs a bigger pot.

Plant now or in spring?

I did a similar thing, made cottage garden borders from the lawn. Where grass has been, the ground will be very low in nitrogen and other nutrients, I started digging in November, dug all the weeds and grass out, made the edges good then piled on loads of comost, then

 in the early spring some bone meal, then I planted up..


I would advise you to spend from now till spring doing all the prep work, by then you will see how many plants you have, what you still want and what spaces you will have for some annuals. Dont rush, the more prep work, the better the borders.

A mental care person and a West Country lass, will you be my friend, I need all the help I can get at the moment, my mums in Derriford. I have a lot of seeds read to go.

I have a packet of Aster seeds I think, loads of different foxgloves and delphiniums plus several others.

Forester, I  noticed a pretty peach callendula back along, if there 

are anymore spare I would love some of those, also your blue lupins.


As I have been a bit busy lately with mum, if I have forgotten anyone, please remind me,

I wonder if this is the start of blanket weed,its very soft and floaty and has



attached itself to the floating oxygenators

My water soldiers had four babies and I have a tiny snail, some water boatmen, diving black beetles and thousands of gnat larvae.
