My mum's been in NH last 5wks & I'm still struggling to deal with it. I'm so pleased she looks so much better than before she went in, as now eating regularly & not staying in bed for 17hrs & refusing to get up, as she was before NH. I'm just learning to deal with the constant questioning of going home. I'm so relieved she's safe there, as living on her own she would do dangerous things, like climbing steep stone garden steps, with scissors in her hand & taking plugs off electrical appliances & leaving the bare wire etc. I know that when the weather is bad & I am not able to get in to visit her, that she is well looked after & I don't have to worry about her, like I did the last 3 years when she was living on her own. We had heavy snow here tuesday & wednesday. My daughter's husband left for work at 8 o clock wednesday morning & she got a call from him shortly after, to say he'd had a serious car accident & thankfully wasn't hurt. The road he was travelling on doesn't get gritted & his car skidded, spun around & landed upside down on it's roof in a deep ditch. He was so lucky to get out & not a scratch. I saw the car upside down in the ditch & really don't know how he got out. The same day my daughter had an appointment at a hospital, an hour's drive away, to get results of an MRI scan she had done recently. She's been getting headaches every day the last 12 months & some are so bad that she cries with the pain. They have 2 young children, 1 & 5 years old & I help her with them, when she needs it. Her husband was going to take her, but was unable to get the day off, so my husband said he'd take her. They all left at the same time, after leaving their baby with me. A short while after, my husband rang & told me about the car accident & he & my daughter, went straight to her husband. Understandably, he was in shock as was my daughter & us & his parents too. Next day insurance co arranged for their car to be taken away to a garage. As it was upside down in a ditch, it took a long time to retrieve it. The driver asked my daughter if she was ok. She told him, her husband was driving. He asked was he alone, as he saw the 2 car seats & said it was a good job that their 2 children weren't in the car. It upset me so much, to think what could have happened, but I'm so thankful that he's ok & that my daughter & their 2 children hadn't been traveling with him. We heard that some roads near the hospital where she had her appointment were impassable, so they decided not to travel. I'm so glad they did, as it would've been so dangerous & so worrying, after what had happened earlier.I said to my daughter, the Consultant might not have arrived either, as roads were so bad. She now has to wait until March, for another appointment. She said, Mum, I've suffered this long & learnt to live with the pain, that a few more weeks won't make any difference. I feel so sorry for her, as having 2 young children is not easy with getting headaches too. She was obviously so worried about her husband, that she was prepared to wait for her appointment. I worry so much about my mum, my daughter & her family & my 2 sons & their families too. No matter what their age, we always worry about our children, even more so when they're adults.
