What did I say?........

I spoke a little prematurely yesterday when I said things were improving for Mum.  As might be expected when they are trying to get the medication right, Mum has not made the expected improvement today and is still in hospital.  I've spoken to her twice today and she is fine but her heart is still playing up so she will be there a while longer.  She was a bit slow in her speech this morning but I think that was the meds as she was much brighter this evening and chatting a lot more  freely, so I feel a bit better, but I think Monday may well see me catching a train to Essex to see for myself. 

I told Mum of all the good wishes winging her way from all my lovely blogging friends and she said to tell you all 'Thank you and God Bless you all'.  (You would be forgiven for thinking that my Mum is the Queen!).



This is Mum on a cruise last year.  She is a powerhouse at 84 years of age :o)  Her friends are rallying round so they will be queuing out the door to visit soon!  Thank you all for your good wishes.  I'm sure Mum will soon be back to her usual self and back home.

Hope all goes well with your mum Julie.

Sorry to hear that your mother has to stay in Julie. Better that than letting her go home before they feel that she is stabilised though.

Hope they get the meds sorted soon, and a full recovery follows :)

May I add my good wishes to all the others Julie? I hope she recovers fully to continue her exciting life. You will be just like her when you are 84!

My thoughts are with you and your mum. Once the medication levels are sorted hopefully you should see a big improvement. Travel safely if you go down to Essex.
I was going to keep quiet about being locked inside a fantastic quilt exhibition. We would not have got cold.

Thinking of you. At least it will keep her where she can't be dashing off doing all sorts of things she's not ready for yet! Hope all goes well, Julie. Sending positive thoughts

Keep your chin up Julie and my thoughts and good wishes go with you and your family.

So sorry to hear your mum has not been well, it must be very worrying for you.
I hope she will be feeling better soon.x

As someone said your Mum is in the right place, try not to worry but maybe visit anyway? I have a friend from the village 87 on Tuesday on oxygen in hosp & she just wants to go home. Might pick her some flowers from her garden, if that's not too 'wrong'. Your anniversary ones were lovely!

Thinking of you Julie, and your lovely Mum. Once the hospital get the medication right she'll be home again in no time.
