Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
What is said about counting your chickens?? tempting fate saying I had some outings planned!

Mum fell getting out of bed yesterday, about 7.30. Our Dr eventually arrived at 4 in the afternoon, diagnosed a broken wrist and told me to take mum in the car to the local A and E. We pointed out she couldn't stand so the GP said she would phone for an ambulance, she was in the house for 4 minutes!!

The paramedic noticed at once mum had a fracture of the pelvis, the hospital at Colchester were wonderful. The consultant decided that mum would be best at home in familiar seroundings so we came home in a private ambulance at 2 in the morning.The care was amazing unlike the GP !!!

So I am trying to arrange 24 hour care at home, haven't slept for about 31 hours but mum is tucked up in bed with her arm in a cast and, more importantly, happy to be home.

love to all
