  1. Out again last night

    Well i'm prity certain dad was up last night.
    When i came home from work he was in bed, so i put out his breakfast ready. I dropped off about midnight and for once slept through.
    At 9am when I got up he was unusually still abed. His breakfast gone and washed up, curtains closed (were open when i came in) table set for dinner, and i found his cap lying on the phone table (had been put away) that means he had been out in the small hours. I think he was up a while as him still being asleep ...

  2. Dizzy, depressed and deteriorating

    Mom was not too good today. She was so dizzy she was having trouble navigating even with my arm and her cane. She wrote me a note to say her speech was worse. I think she may have had a TIA? She's also very down, fed up with everything about the ALF. I went to buy her soft toilet paper to replace the stuff she said was too rough. We also sat with her friend Kay. They usually egg each other on, humorously, but today it was a litany of complaints from both about the ALF--they simply do not want to ...

  4. Now I am totally confused!

    Well today I am totally confused!

    Following on from my husband's worrying behaviour yesterday and a restless night, I carried out his urine check this morning and found that there was blood in it.

    Rang the surgery to say that the recent course of antibiotics hadn't completely cleared the infection and was quite surprised to be told that the previous sample we'd provided (when the antibiotic course was started) had come back from the lab to say there was no bacteria ...

  5. Withdrawn behaviour

    I think I'll need to carry out another urine check on my husband in case the last course of antibiotics ( which ended yesterday) hasn't done the trick.

    I did notice he was a bit confused last night, showing surprise that our house had stairs when he was on the way to bed. I've no idea why, he has never lived in a house that didn't have stairs since the day he was born.

    I think he was very tired. He'd had a particularly early start in the morning because our daughter ...
