Got a call this afternoon from mums regular and absolutely fabulous carer. They had just got back from the SFTB group that mum loves and mum had suddenly become very afraid and was shaking. D was at the end of her alloted time but stayed with mum for the hour it took me to get there. Mum was still clearly upset. Mum was sure something terrible was going to happen but she didn't know what. D had tried putting on a fun dvd , chatting and hugging and comforting mum but nothing had worked. I called the gp and they agreed to see us. Mum had test for water infection and checks for blood pressure and temperature and all was ok. She had calmed down significantly by this time. From begging me not to leave her when I first got round, to waving me of as I left at 9.15 pm. I don't know if I have done the right thing. This had never happened before ands mum is always sayng she loves her flat and feels safe there.
