Seems the old folks are all the same then? it does help to know that.
When I had to get the paramedics in for a few months ago, (Ithink I posted about it) but one of them had a real go at me for letting her dehydrate, He didnt get of lightly I may add! but its hurtful at the time when you are already worried about them, but as everyone says, you cant make them do anything.
Mum is up this morning, quite bright, but she only sits in an armchair, almost in a laying position, them she will retire to the lounge at 4.30 where she will lay on the settee, at 11pm she will go to bed, where she will lay till 10am tomorrow. I am sure if she walked about a bit she would clear her lungs and get the stoma working better.
I just said to her about and she says she cant walk about with the leg bag hanging down and she wont use the leg bands.
so she will sit all day and probably walk all of 20 yards in 24 hours!.
Rant over, thank you all so much I really do appreciate your help and encouragement, Fishy, keep it coming mate, any more compliments like that and my head will grow so big it will break
