Horrible Day

Hi all

Mum went into respite today for 1st time, it didnt go as badly as we had anticipated although we stayed and settled her in for about 3 hours. She did say a couple of times she didn't want to stop there but when we tried to explain we needed a holiday and they wouldn't let her fly due to her bad heart ,she half accepted it. Bad news for when she comes out though, her yorkshire terrier whom she gave to us some 6 years ago as she could no longer walk him had to go to the vet as he was poorly and the vet has said he has a probable liver tumor and as he is nearly 14 it probably wouldnt be wise to put him through a operation as size of liver indicates too big to operate. We have a course of antibiotics to see how he goes but this was the last thing we needed before we try to go away to Turkey tommorow to enjoy a much needed holiday. He is staying at home with 18 year old son who loves him to bits so we know he will be well looked after whilst we are away but did not need this extra worry on top of worrying about mum.
What a horrible day this has been.

Dear Janice, yes, a truly rotten day for you. But, you can't do any more than you are already doing. Your mum has been taken to a place of safety to be cared for and her little dog has been treated by the vet. It is all ANYBODY could do you know. Try to have as good a holiday as you can, you need a break. I know it would be pointless to tell you not to worry, but at least just take a step back for a little while and let others carry your load while you gain a little strength before you pick it up again. Thinking of you, Love, She. XX

Dear Janice,

I do hope you have a wonderful relaxing break and can manage to leave all the worries behind for a short time. Holidays are a great time for reflection and being objective too, but the most important thing is for you to have a very well deserved break.

Janice have a lovely time on holiday, have a good drink for all of us, and recharge your batteries. You need this holiday to enable you to look after your loved one. It will benefit all of you.
Bon voyage.
