and the problem of being a ‘mod’ Brucie asked me the other day how Lionel and I were. I replied “very well, and compared to this time last year, brilliant” Not quite true. Yes he is super. Very relaxed, well cared for and is very happy in the Care Home………………Me, trying to come to terms with that fact that the man I love, the man I have cared for 24/7 for the past five years, is now being looked after by others. I find it so, so hard to say ‘goodbye’ each time I leave him, especially when he says “but hurry back”. Mobility gone, not his mind.. As for being a ‘mod’…….I apologise if I have not been so much in evidence on the board, or if my comments have appeared a little terse at times. We are all only human, and it’s hard being a ‘mod’ when you are carrying so much emotional baggage Belated “Happy New Year” to all..
