Feeling hopeless and helpless, Mum thought I would have good news following the latest hearing. The powers that be once again let her down. Yet another date set for 8 weeks time and we were told it would possibly not be enough time then to come to a decision. More statements to write, more interviews, more upset to go through and all the time they keep reinventing the wheel when the evidence is staring them in the face and they choose not to see it. I doubt previous statements have even been flicked through let alone read. And all this is meant to be in my.mums 'best interests"? No, its playing with an old lady's life with no real thought on how the uncertainty of her future in the balance is affecting her on a day to day basis. And I am the one who has to try to make her believe everything will be ok in the end, when I truly dont know if it will be. I can't begin to tell you how Im feeling right now.
