Okay the good news (as far as good news goes these days!) is that mum's first afternoon with her carers went "okayish". Well I think that's damn good news - we thought it would be hell on toast so "okayish" is quite positive to my mind. Tried to talk to the vicar again but didn't really get any where. However, dad told the carers not to come on Wednesday so the SW rang him to ask why not. He explained and she demanded that he give her the vicars telephone number which he did. Haven't heard what's come of that but fingers crossed she may succeed where I have failed. We also finally got some news on Milly and her health issues (after the brain scan and things). She has intention (??) tremors - as far as we can estbalish so far (we go to another specialist in six weeks) they don't know what causes it, they can't cure it and all we can do is teach her how to manage with it. It won't get worse but nor is she likely to grow out of it. Once she goes to school they can provide her with equipment which will help her to combat it (I think the main problem will be writing because she'll have to fight against the tremors). They're also looking at whether physiotherpay could help. So it's not good news but nor is it as bad as it could have been. Anyway, that's my day so far....!!
