Hello Pinstony,

I do hope the antibiotics help June quickly, and that she begins to rally soon.

It is amazing just how poorly something seemingly as minor as a water infection can make someone with dementia (and those without too!).

But its always such a worry when we see the deterioration whilst they are unwell - I know you visit June so often, and it must upset you a great deal to see her like that.

I hope you manage to get a reasonable night's sleep :)

Pins tony, I'm very sorry to hear that June has an infection and hope she gets relief from the medication soon. At least you got a bit of sleep last night. We are thinking of you both.

Hoping June is starting to improve. Take care of yourself and try to get some rest - you want to look well for her when she does next open her eyes to give you a nice smile again.

Oh Tony, how maddening - always having to chase up what should be straight forward...

Sorry that poor June has not had the medication as quickly as she should, and that you've had yet more stress.

You deserve a peaceful night - a wee nip might be in order for us all! ;)

I will join you in one, Tony - could just fancy a G and T. Do hope you will find June a lot better very soon, and that you have a good night.
