Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

I have phoned the hospital, just as I said, catheter in, loads of fluids via a drip, the stoma has worked of its own accord, thank goodness for that, that was my main worry.

They want to keep her in for a couple of days to get the fluid levels up and then want to do a kidney test, they said there can be a 'kidney injury' when they get so dehydrated.

thank you everyone.

That will be little green caterpillars just search and pick them off. Remember to put them on the bird table.

What a great shame, that Elton Safety has a lot to answer for. How did we all survive back then, climbing trees whacking conkers, digging holes, eating mud pies that we proudly made.....

I tried some in the freezer in ice cube trays, it was horrible, so I now stick to drying it completely then putting in glass jars.

Parsley, however is lovely in ice cube trays.

I take it that the cactus seed is for something else, they wont live in the jat either.

Hot and dry for cactus as well as the sedums.

If you want anything, please let me know.

Thank you every one for your thoughts and care, its very difficult especially with this drinking lark, or when they tell you they are ok and they are not, she looked ok last week and as soon as I detected she was not good I called the doctor out.

You are all very kind and I really do take note of the comments even if I dont reply, thank you.

Slosh, cut the branch off as others have said, not a good idea to do a hard prune until Feb, just shorten the other stems in Autumn, when they are in the dormant season to stop wind rock, then a good prune in Feb or in cold areas in March.

If you hard prune now they will grow new shoots which will not be stong enough to withstand cold winters.

A very dear friend of ours died on Sunday, funeral next week, his son has dug the grave and wants my OH to help him fill in.

 I dont really blame myself as such, but I am so annoyed with the whole situation as if she had told me none of this would have happened.

I dont thing it was the paramedics job to have a go at me, his job is with the patient, if and only if, he suspected any fowl play, then he should have phoned social services, not take it upon himself to judge me. I was upset enough, as was said before dehydration causes all sorts of problems, she was shaking and. Jittering couldnt keep still. 

He made her get out of bed on her own, she nearly fell and I had to hold her,  my daughter said,,,I hope you got his name mum!
