She said...

‘I have taken those drugs before and they will make me psychotic!’  
They have, and her evil ire is aimed at me!
We picked Audrey up from hospital yesterday, set her up safely at home.
Today, she on faceTime is accusing us of dropping her in it, not to put too fine a point on it
the frigging brown and smellies!
It was all our fault that we arrived ten minutes early and prevented her from taking the all important paperwork with her to hospital.

‘I was just in the middle of highlighting the pertinent points, when you arrived!’

The fact she could hardly breathe was completely forgotten.

She fired off a list of things we had said that in her mind meant she didn’t get the treatment she 
should have got.  Completely forgetting that armed with my iPad I at every stage from reception to triage nurse to doctor showed them the email that explained her team were expecting her.

My B.P. shot off the scale, hers tickled along at 120/80...
is that I idly wonder, why she is still up and at it at 93, 94 in September?

Where to go from here, when I am rapidly feeling I am totally and utterly out of my depth.

Today the renovations are finally done, the glass is in and looks superb, pictures are hung.  Just the bit now I like the best, the scene setting and fiddling.  

I’m fiddling alright while the Rome that is more commonly known as Aud burns with anger and angst.



Happy days!

    1. No? I am not surprised Heron, trouble is it was me that got us in this pickle. My husband did warn me of the responsibility!

  4. Enjoy your fiddling ! Photos of the finished renovations please. The old lady I help to look after is in hospital with urine infection, but life is actually easier as I don't have to go round twice a day to take and fetch her dog, a yappy yorkie, who lives with us but keeps J company during the day.

  5. If you have a smart phone download the app Headspace. Its free and my doctor recommended it to me to help with panic during a very traumatic time. It's not as good as valium! but it helps once you get your head round it!! Took me a few tries - you're not supposed to laugh lol! But it did help eventually. Good luck. x

  6. Don't know who Audrey is... But she is obviously "losing some of her marbles." Which fact, is of no help, to you. -sigh-

    1. This is the third attempt at replying to you wow, hopefully that rich mr google will allow my comment this time?

      She is a lady I adopted as my ‘mum’ born the year after mine. As I haven’t had a mum for well over forty years, it seemed like a good idea at the time... now I’m not so sure?

    1. Breathe? I’m hyperventilating with dismay and anger in equal measures. Even my husband who has oodles of patience, was upset as he was squarely in the frame as well. It must be the tablets as she feared, however trying to reason with her is impossible... tablets again... maybe?

      We took ourselves out yesterday to Canterbury. Even in the pouring rain, it was a welcome relief to get away!

Sourdough soap opera...

the story so far. My decision to bend the rules has been a success. This is my usual multigrain loaf made every week, this time with ...
