This week has been a bit hazy. In my last entry I talked about Mom being in hospital etc etc. Well; things went from bad to worse. It transpires that VD and AD are not her only problems, and they've identified the big 'C' in her lungs. Good that they've spotted it, but bad that they missed it on a previous x-ray 6 weeks ago. Also has problems with her bladder emptying and have inserted a catheter. These things are bad enough, but I did what had to be done on Tuesday, and went in search of a respite

All clear on the cancer front but the doc said my problem was caused by a mini stroke which has changed the sensation in my throat
