If its any help Lyn, when my Mum became hard to handle, and in lifting her OH's back became very bad we had a social service assessment - not to do with nurses. Have you had one/ Within a few days we had a commode (oh goodness it made life easier) someone to come and help get her out of bed and to wash and dress her. Also on their remit was to change the sheets.It wasn't much but oh boy did it relieve the pressure because in that time they were with her I had a short space of time to revitalise (walk round garden, have a luxury bath etc) Did have to pay somethinhg (she was assessed) but it was worth it.
Any way my thoughts are much with all those caring for the really elderly. Fidget and don't know how to help you but remember you are in our thoughts..
As to me - after more biopsy's I go and find out what's to be done tomorrow. All of you fingers crossed please that it is the more minor op.
