    Can I ... Should I?

    Hoping that you are managing to relax as much as possible during the whirlwind that is sorting everything out. Leaving a top up of hugs and as much CM as deemed necessary xx

    Can I ... Should I?

    Oh Sam, on the one hand I am so sorry to read your news, on the other I am glad that your mum's suffering is over. You have been amazing throughout and I for one have learned so much from you and your mum's journey. I hope now that you rest and know that we are all still here for you in the...

    Can I ... Should I?

    Peaceful... well - not so much in July and August we're overrun at the moment! September is a nice month, still warm, but not so many people. First morning of dad having carers in today, I have to go down to check he plays along... cross fingers! *takes back old sack of hugs and replaces with a...

    Can I ... Should I?

    Really hoping that the DN has been by now and managed to ease your mum's pain. I remember this stage with FIL (not dementia, but just as heartbreaking.) I really hope that the meds can be tweaked and bring your mum to a more peaceful state. I am sorry if this is coming out all wrong... I really...

    (((((hugs))))) from way down West. With the promise of more as and when needed - no need to provide a token. Also dropping off a large CM to be dispensed as required :) xxx

    Can I ... Should I?

    As usual, I have nothing useful to add to what everyone else has said so eloquently. Try to look after yourself too, and know that I - along with so many others here - are right next to you in spirit. Sending so many huge Cornish hugs your way right now Sam xx

    Can I ... Should I?

    When Dad was tampering with the smoke alarms, I had to contact the community tri-service station and they arranged for a man to come out and refit them. Perhaps you have a similar station local to you? I somehow seem to have managed to get dad's med prompts sorted, with CHC, without fighting...

    Dealing with a metaphorical timebomb...

    That's dad down to a tee Grahamstown. Well, they're going to stop all the evening medication. I think that's a good thing. It does mean that dad will no longer have the simvastatin, but the lovely eldercare Dr who I totally wasn't expecting to be present, thinks that it is pointless and will...

    Can I ... Should I?

    I echo what the others have said. It's not cold hearted - it's for your sanity! I have had numerous little comments from health professionals regarding dad. One was the throwaway comment of the falls being down to the heart failure - wait what now? Then the Dr's remark that I knew he didn't...

    Dealing with a metaphorical timebomb...

    Well, no more massive jets, but Dad definitely seems to be taking a down turn :( Last Friday he tried to refill his dossette box before I got there. Completely wrong as you can imagine. Luckily I got to it and corrected it. Dad had halved his anticoagulant, doubled the heart meds and generally...
