Feeling a bit sorry for myself. 1st child off to uni, last year. 2nd child going off Sat, 1st year. Real Dad!! Well at moment, he suffers from cancer but very independent. Step dad suffers from Lewy Bodies, he is well at moment. Introduced me to staff, as though they have never met me. Had a really good conversation, though he thinks I am not married yet, made me chuckle when he said I could have my pick of any of my boyfriends. Have not told hubby! Been happily married 22 years. But poor little mother in law 86 years old she has suffered a very large heart attack they told us she would not survive, 4 days later she is still here. We found her on the floor and she did complain about her ankle, but in resus, where they were fighting for her life it seemed secondary. Well today bruises and swelling came out. The ankle is broken it needs to be operated on but they cannot do this as she is still very unstable. She does not suffer from dementia. My husband and I feel awful. We did not mention it to A&E consultants as they were too busy trying to save her life. I suppose you think kids off to Uni maybe you can have some me time. You never really give care of elderly relatives a thought until it really bites you. I would never stop caring for them and think a lot of people have it so much worse. I just feel bad for feeling bad if you know what I mean. Well just wanted to get this off my chest. I am sure you all understand as many of you deal with much worst. But it just helps to talk sometimes. Back to work tom hopefully with no phone calls.
