Verdun, thank you. When all this is over, I think  we deserve to have a day out?

I have just has a district nurse come, with a student, after seeing how bad the situation is, she has referred it to Fast Track and to the Marie Currie fund.

She assured me someone will come in tomorrow, it is becoming a nurses job as mum is getting sore.

Billie, you have a great understanding for this, I also wrote pages and pages from a situation I was in years ago, but a couple of years ago, I put them all on the fire, it does really help to do that, and then throw the problem away, burning is the best.

I know how to do it, but she is frightened and thinks she will fall, so far the nurse has turned her and I hold on to her for reassurance, then she can treat the area. we do the sheet together, they did put those nappies on but because of the soreness they said she was better free, just on the pad.

I dont know anyone around here, quite remote although only 5 or so miles from the surgery, you would think its was 50 by the way they go on!.

OH gone to work and she wouldn't like any other but a male nurse to see her 'bum and bits', she also doesnt complain so much if a trained person is here.

You know, I feel like giving her the whole lot of morphine, what is the point in 'care in the community'  that they go on about.

I have just been told, no help for today available. All I want is for someone to help me turn her so we can wash and apply some cream, put a dry inco sheet on. 15 minutes is all I need!

This NHS is disgusting, she told me to complain to someone higher up., I told her it wouldn't do any good if I complained to the Queen!

Pauline, there will be no help, unless I say I really cant go on, then they will probably  put her in a hospice, none of us want that. Thankfully it wont go on too long.

The t shirt, from the Eden project was a bit tight, shd got  size 8 but since mums troubles, I have put on half a stone so she is changing it for a 10.

They bought cards and flowers for mum, she was thrilled.

I cant see what they are, but if just leggy annuals you can pot them on when they are big enough just bury them  almost up to the first set of leaves, even if it means curling them round in the pots.

This is why most of us dont even start our seeds until we have longer days, no struggling up for light then.

Remember, you wont be able to plant them out for about 2 months.

It was on the news this morning  that people should be looked after at home and stay with their families if they want to and care should be available. I remember this exact story on the news 10 years ago, things are still exactly the same!

We didnt get a good night I sat up with her until 3.30am then I told her I was going to the loo. I quietly slipped off to bed. At 5.30 she called over the baby alarm, ' lyn, are you there, are you in the loo' !! She is all there.

Lily, everyone is geriatric around here!!

The district nurse is coming again in the morning but to be honest, I am not sure she will last much longer, we have had a terrible couple of hours, I am exhausted, not as much as she must be though.

I have given here  a dose of morphine and she is very calm now, hopefully will stay like that all night.

I have bought a baby alarm so I can hear every breath, its like having a new baby again.
