Today is Mum's birthday. I went to viait with her great grandson who is just 6 months old. I wanted so much for her to enjoy him, she was just so sad, crying and shouting, and I came away feeling so sad for her. Today should be a happy day, but instead I feel dreadful Mum just never smiles and I so want to be able to get through to her just how much she is loved. The staff at her nursing home had put up banners and balloons, they are just so lovely, I am so grateful she is in such a lovely place.
