Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

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.

Thank you 

Tetley, they are about 17 miles from here. Worth looking at.

mum had a catheter for 6 months last year, also a stoma, so I could easlily cope with that side of things. If I need to get the doctor first, that could then become a lengthy process.

the trouble with getting care down here is that there is no one to do it, I offered to pay anything last year for help with mum, I was told even if I was willing to pay 100.00 per hour, I wouldn't get any.

i only ever had temporary care, nothing permanent, what they call a care package was neve put in place.  couldn't get a MacMillan nurse in the whole time I looked after her.

young people do not want to go into this type of work these days, and even less want to live in the quiet backwater areas.

I think Monty deserves a drink or six, having to deal with the general public! 

I haven't watched the programmes, I prefer just a straight forward gardening info programme, not with public. Miserable old tart that I am
