My lovely mother's 91st birthday - January 21st 2011
I'm desperately hoping she will be well enough to attend her 92nd birthday lunch in nine days time. She has just returned from a dash to the local district hospital with a suspected heart attack. Luckily it was found to be a (light) case of pneumonia. She is responding well to treatment but has clearly suffered a bit of a downturn, though remaining cheerful and looking forward to returning home.
And the other Dark Side: If anyone can offer advice with dealing with social services provision for the elderly I would be very grateful to hear from you. Please email from my profile page, many thanks.
