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

I would say that your best job there was watching the newts and tads, Philippa,  I can spend a good deal of time pond gazing.

Potting on seedlings

Yes, same Tootles, the seed compost seems to clag together and there are a lot of 'stones' in it. That's in the compost not innit, as in modern speak

Darren is right, I was just about to say that.

Thanks Doc, tomorrow I am going to ring the district nurse and see if they will fit a catheter, at least that will be one job less.

do you think they will do that or does the doctor have to request it?

Brilliant  offer YC,  wish I had one near me.

see, us that didn't attend school too often do get our priorities right and know what's half price and what's not.

Thought I'd bring this thread up to date in case our newbies haven't seen it and may need it in the future.

there is so much love put into this thread, just putting any little troubles don't seem so bad after people have commented.

my dad, as many of you know,  is very bad now,  naturally no care help. I am finding it very difficult to move him about, clothing and sheets changing etc. Not that I mind, I absolutely don't mind at all and will do all I can for him, it won't be much longer, but oh dear, a little help would be good. Things grind exceedingly slow down here in hill billy country.

I have managed at last to get an air/ripple bed for him, supposed to be delivered tomorrow, fingers crossed on that one.

anyway enough whinging, just wanted to give the people that know about the situation, an update. And of course, you will remember exactly the same with me last year!

friends I owe emails too, I will answer  when I can. But no sleep at the moment and as soon as I sit down, I drop off thank you for listening to me.x
